PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds recently made it known that they are monitoring the use of third-party devices like the Xim used by console players to play with a keyboard and a mouse. However, the company may be withdrawing their support of these third-party devices soon.
PUBG’s community coordinator, Dan “RoboDanjal” tweeted a response to a question on whether there are plans to eradicate console players’ use of a keyboard and mouse in the game. He said that the team has been gathering in-game data for the past several weeks over the third party device usage of console players.
“Although usage of these devices is statistically very low, fair gameplay is core to our experience, and we will be communicating our plan to curb the use of these devices soon.”
The community coordinator did not detail on how long it will take for the company to gather the relevant data and implement the changes they are planning for PUBG on the console. However, given that the issue was previously discussed in the PUBG forums last February, this is probably still a work in progress for the developers.
