PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG is undoubtedly the biggest name in the gaming world right now. The multiplayer battle royale has taken the world by storm and has already become the second-best selling game of all time on PC . That’s quite a big achievement for any game which has not completed even one year anniversary of its launch.
One of the biggest reason behind the success of PUBG is that developers are really active and are constantly releasing updates and bug-fixes for the game. The team of PUBG takes cheating very seriously and has already released a couple of anti-cheat updates allowing the players to play a fair game.
PC players, the patch for the anti-cheat update has been delayed, as an unexpected issue has occurred while testing its compatibility. We will soon update you when it will be released. Thank you for your understanding.

That said, their latest anti-cheat update, which was announced a couple of days back by Bluehole Studios, the creators of PUBG, has been delayed. PUBG announced the delay on Twitter by tweeting,
“PC players, the patch for the anti-cheat update has been delayed, as an unexpected issue has occurred while testing its compatibility. We will soon update you when it will be released. Thank you for your understanding.”
As you can see, the planned anti-cheat update seem to have run into compatibility issues and hence won’t be released on time. This is a bad news for all the PUBG gamers as the new anti-cheat update was meant to introduce a number of security measures in the game and was supposed to stop players from using third-party software to boost up their gameplay.
PC players, as we announced today, the new anti-cheat update has been delayed but we have blocked ReShade through BattlEye. You will need to uninstall ReShade and may also need to reinstall our game to play. Details here: https://t.co/xLxsOVoqZR

The company also informed users that BattlEye, a part of PUBG’s anti-cheat solution, has blocked ReShade. So for a user to run the game, he/she must uninstall ReShade. If the game files are already damaged, the user will also have to reinstall the game.
It’s certainly not the news users were waiting for, however, since PUBG has not given any timeline as to when the compatibility problem will be solved, PUBG players don’t have any other choice than to wait.
