PUBG Mobile Cheat Makers Ordered to Pay $10 Million in Damages

Members of a hacking group that create cheats for PUBG Mobile have been ordered to pay $10 million in damages — which PUBG’s developers say will reinvest in anti-cheat technology.

As described in a press release, federal courts in the US and Germany recently ruled in favor of PUBG Mobile publishers Tencent Games and Krafton in a lawsuit filed against members of a hacking group known for creating and distributing cheats in the game.

As part of the ruling, the defendants have been ordered to pay approximately $10 million USD in damages to the publishers. In addition, the group has also been ordered to provide details of how they managed to exploit the game in the first place and are under strict instructions to cease future illegal cheating activities.

In a statement following the legal victory, Tencent Games PUBG Mobile Producer Rick Li spoke about the importance of the ruling within the game’s online community. “Millions of players around the world are enjoying PUBG Mobile and we will ensure a level playing field for everyone. Unfortunately, the actions of hacker groups undermine the fairness of the game. These statements send a clear signal that we will not tolerate cheating in PUBG Mobile,” he said.

Minu Lee, head of PUBG Mobile Product Development at Krafton, added that publishers will continue to monitor the game’s status going forward. “Fun and honesty are the foundation of the PUBG Mobile experience and cheating in any form will not be tolerated,” said Lee. “As such, we will continue to enforce our IP rights with unwavering determination against anyone who seeks to tarnish or abuse them.”

The two companies have announced that all funds recovered from the ruling will be reinvested in anti-cheat technology for the game.

Despite this being a win for PUBG Mobile and its community, other online multiplayer publishers hope it sends a broader message across the industry. The problem of cheating has become much more prominent with the rise of free-to-play online games and has impacted a number of gaming communities, including Halo Infinite, Call of Duty: Warzone, and Battlefield 2042.

While a number of games, such as Call of Duty: Warzone, have attempted to combat cheating by building on and improving their built-in anti-cheat systems, a number of companies are also exploring further legal options. Most recently, Activision announced that it has filed a lawsuit against EngineOwning – a popular cheats distributor accused of creating and distributing cheats in a range of Call of Duty titles. With that in mind, it’s likely that Activision will be encouraged by the recent ruling in favor of PUBG Mobile and hope for a similar outcome in their own pursuits.
