It seems that development has been slowing, however, as PUBG Corp states that the effort to combat cheaters has detracted from its upcoming ping-based matchmaking and inevitable third map.

While facts and figures have yet to be revealed despite false numbers floating around the web, BattlEye has said that "the vast majority is from China", which has caused outcry for region locking on the servers. After the latest map release, the Desert map to be precise, the game's developers have been working on the biggest issue of the game: cheaters. Unfortunately, the plan never came to fruition because of the ongoing fight against cheaters, which has accounted for numerous developer's resources in the last few months.

Finally, PUBG Corp apologised for being silent since the release of 1.0, and promised to share, in March, a roadmap of the content coming to the game in the first half of 2018.

In the future matchmaking will start to give preference to users with a low ping.

This will be done "by splitting the matching pool rather than restricting connection depending on ping", the developers are confident that this feature will improve the playing experience.

"We do have a lot of exciting things that we want to share with you, including new content to provide more extensive battle royale experiences as well as improvements and modifications to create a deeper and more realistic gameplay", it said.

As for how the game stands right now, a few minor bug fixes and changes have made their way into the game.

As EuroGamer also explains, Bluehole actually gave a hint about the new map's location past year.

The team is also plugging away at a system to "divide the matching pool depending on ping".
