PUBG Corp announced the delay via Twitter, explaining that an “unexpected issue has occurred while testing its compatibility.”

Not much more detail was given on the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds official forums, except to announce that ReShade has now officially been blocked by the game’s security tech.

“As announced, the new anti-cheat solution that was to be applied today has been delayed,” PUBG Corp explains. “However, BattlEye, a part of our anti-cheat solution, has blocked ReShade. For you to run the game, you must uninstall ReShade. If the game files are already damaged, you must also reinstall the game.

“ReShade not only behaves like a cheat program but can also be used for cheating, and must therefore be blocked. Please be advised that this is a permanent block.”

PUBG’s new anti-cheat update is set to take aim at third-party programs which “modify the gameplay or visuals in an invasive way,” which unfortunately includes blocking Steam family sharing and ReShade.

PUBG Corp have not yet confirmed how long the delay will be.
