PUBG's anti-cheat patch rolled back due to crashes

Cheaters really have ruined an otherwise decidedly fun, tense Battle Royale game - but it's going to take a lot more than just getting rid of them to lure lapsed players back.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on PC recently got a significant patch that added in new anti-cheat measures. However, an updated post came a few days later that announced some issues had come up with the patch that could "result in a degraded player experience", and for that reason, the patch would be delayed.

The reason for this was given as "liquidity challenges which have plagued it for the past 18 months". As a result, several councils withdrew more than R1-billion in deposits.

To combat the issues, Bluehole has made a decision to roll back the update.

PC players, despite its effectiveness in blocking cheats, we have chose to roll back our latest live server update. The patch mainly targets bugfixes as the previews indicated, but players should experience less audio and control issues after downloading the patch. PUBG Corp provided some information on how to resolve issues in the roll-back notice, and added: "We know that some players are having compatibility issues, causing the game to crash, or are unable to launch the game". We apologize for the inconvenience.
