PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds To Do Cheater Maintenance Tonight

Posted by October 26, 2017 Comment

Those of you who are pissed off about the frequent and rampant cheating that’s taken over PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds the past few weeks, Bluehole is looking to cure that in one giant update. PUBG will go offline tomorrow for a mandatory maintenance across the board in every country at 7 p.m. PDT and is scheduled to go several hours until a new anti-cheating system has been put into place.

The big catalyst for this is that two weeks ago, BattlEye (PUBG’s anti-cheat system) banned over 322k players in October. That’s on top of the over 150k that were banned back in September who are using auto-aim software and other cheats that allow players to basically become killing machines who can’t be touched. This week the system confirmed it banned 25k players within a 24-hour period, as seen by the tweet below.

In short, Bluehole had to do something to quell the situation, and it appears they’re going to take the game offline and keep it offline until the new update has been put in place and they’re confident it’s running. What exactly will the update and maintenance do? No one is really sure, so we’ll keep an eye on this and update you when the game returns tomorrow.
