PUBG Mobile Cheat Makers Must Pay $10 Million After Lawsuit Is Lost

Krafton Inc. and Ten­cent Games–developer and pub­lish­er of PUBG Mobile (respectively)–won a court case against a hack­ing group accused of dis­trib­ut­ing cheats for the mobile game.

Fed­er­al courts in both the Unit­ed States and Ger­many ruled in favor of the two the com­pa­nies, order­ing the hack­er group to pay close to $10 mil­lion in dam­ages and resti­tu­tion. The group was found to be cre­at­ing and dis­trib­ut­ing cheats and hacks to oth­er users, obvi­ous­ly giv­ing recip­i­ents advan­tages in PUBG Mobile.

Mil­lions of play­ers world­wide enjoy PUBG Mobile and we will ensure a lev­el play­ing field for every­one,” Rick Li, pro­duc­er on PUBG Mobile, said in the offi­cial release. “Sad­ly, the actions of hack­er groups under­mine the fair­ness of the game. These judg­ments send a clear mes­sage that we will not tol­er­ate cheating.”

The hack­er group was also ordered to pro­vide details on how they were able to exploit the game, as well as any col­lab­o­ra­tors that helped them.

Ten­cent and Krafton announced they will invest the funds received to fur­ther their anti-cheat tech­nol­o­gy, includ­ing the recent­ly released “device ban fea­ture.” This fea­tures bans spe­cif­ic devices from log­ging into PUBG Mobile or even cre­at­ing a new account.

This court deci­sion is just the lat­est bat­tle in legal wars that’s been going on over cheat dis­trib­u­tors. Activi­sion Bliz­zard recent­ly sued anoth­er cheat web­site over Call of Duty: War­zone cheats.
