PUBG developer Bluehole recently took to Steam to provide an update
on the current 2018 roadmap for the hit Battle Royale game. In fact due to the shift to try and combat rampant cheating, where over 1 million accounts were banned in January this year alone, stuff like new content and yes a brand new map have been pushed back a bit. But not too far as new stuff is still due in the first half of 2018.
With Bluehole noting, "development of some of the major features and systems was delayed as our focus shifted towards tightening our anti-cheat effort". A roadmap for the first half of 2018 is on track for March, a little late sure, but will go into detail about "new content to provide more extensive battle royale experiences as well as improvements and modifications to create a deeper and more realistic gameplay" and the new map.
All of this makes sense, because stamping out exploits through hacks or cheating should be close to or a number one priority.
