To catch a cheat
Earlier this year, the battle royale development team made various anti-cheat changes to the game. Through these new methods, it was hoped that it would become easier to catch PUBG Mobile cheaters.
It has been a big year for PUBG Mobile, as the game crossed 600 million downloads in March. Furthermore, it hit $3.5 billion in lifetime revenue in September, while it is also one of five mobile titles to generate $1 billion in revenue this year.
