PUBG Corp Confirms Arrest of 15 Developers in China for Making and Selling PUBG Cheat Programs
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds isn’t just getting new modes and updates to its gameplay. The company behind the battle royale smash hit, PUBG Corp, is also aggressively pursuing action against its cheaters. PUBG Corp plans to continue cracking down on hacking and cheating programs as well as those who make them, until its player base can battle it out in a fair environment. These include granting players the ability to see-through walls or have auto-aim that ensures you never miss hitting an opponent. As per Chinese law, disrupting computer networks could result in five years of jail time or more, making cheating in PUBG a risky proposition.
It’s so prevalent that Bluehole’s anti-cheats partner, BattlEye, has banned 1.5 million accounts. That’s six percent of the game’s 40 million user base. If you’re a fan of video games, check out Transition, Gadgets 360’s gaming podcast!

More information on the events which the team is going to attend will follow soon. Everyone who I talked to about PUBG, including the managers of organizations which have already acquired such rosters, recommended signing GRUBIE.
