"Millions of players around the world are enjoying PUBG Mobile. We will ensure a level playing field for everyone. But unfortunately, the actions by hackers undermine the fairness of the game. This ruling sends a clear message, that we will not tolerate cheating in PUBG Mobile," said Rick Li, PUBG Mobile Games Producer, Tencent Games, in the information we received.

Krafton Minu Lee, Head of PUBG Mobile Product Development, added that the publisher will continue to monitor the state of the game going forward. Because according to him, joy and fairness are the foundation of the PUBG Mobile experience.
