PUBG's anti-cheat patch gets a delay

0

Cheating never pays...except for today

The launch of newer, better anti-cheat measures for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has suffered a delay. Announced on Twitter, it looks like players will have to wait an undisclosed amount of time for the mega-popular PUBG to finally get on with finally tackling hackers.

The sad thing is, I can't say I'm surprised. I understand that cheating is a massive problem and that coming up with any kind of effective solution will be difficult, but these steps clearly took a back seat to things like better loot box implementation. I won't go so far as to say that PUBG Corp. is greedy, but cheating issues really should have been sorted out by now. The game is nearing a year since its early-access release (and closing in on two months since "full" release), but it still feels like a work-in-progress.
