Good news and bad news for PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Player, a bug in the anti-cheater software resulted in incorrect locks.
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS - BattlEye with errors
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS uses that BattlEye System to detect hackers and cheaters and automatically block them. Other big titles like Fortnite or Rainbow Six Siege use the solution from the company from Germany. Due to a system error, players were wrongly identified as cheaters and banned. There was no information about the number. The Twitter message only speaks of "a bunch", a bunch of players.
Hey PUBG players, due to a glitch in our system we have banned a bunch of innocent players within the past hour. We are really sorry for this and are working on reverting all false bans ASAP.

The good news However, it is that the error was discovered quickly and the unnecessary blocks are being reversed, especially in cooperation with the PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS developers and BattlEye. Dem PUBG Twitter in the meantime, all illegal blockings have even been reversed. So if anyone of you was affected, don't panic and communicate with support if your account is still closed. It should be cleared up pretty quickly.
