99% of PUBG's Banned Cheaters Are From China

99% of PUBG's Banned Cheaters Are From China

PUBG reached a new milestone this week, hitting 30 million units sold to date.

Unfortunately, these numbers don't reflect the number of players actually playing the game, as player numbers are dropping. Another reason attributed to the decline is Bluehole's new anti-cheat measures finally yielding results, cutting out an unwanted chunk of the community thanks to BattlEye and its own in-house systems.

But as the tweet from Bloomberg's Nakamura points out, the number of concurrent players on PC peaked last month, and there has been a steady downward trend ever since.

They say a report from BattlEye, PUBG's anti-cheating system says that 99% of the accounts it has banned for cheating have been in China.

Regardless, Chinese publisher Tencent states that introducing a server into the region will quell these problems further, with the use of plug-ins if the problem is particularly bad.

It's well known by now that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has left a massive dent in the video gaming industry - and now it's just how big that dent really is, seeing as the game has now broken into the top 10 best-selling video games of all time. All this being said, PUBG is still dominating Steam's most played games and continues to peak on the Twitch. Hopefully included in this upcoming roadmap will be a timeline of completion for the Microsoft platform so that the two versions can sync up a bit more in terms of update and content release. Do you think the developer has made much progress on banning cheaters?
