Ubisoft Says They’re Cracking Down On The Division Cheaters

Tom Clancy’s The Division is plagued with cheaters and, until now, no one new exactly what Ubisoft planned to do about the rampant cheating. The company finally made a post on the game's official blog today stating that they are taking the matter seriously and have already implemented some fixes to help detect and ban cheaters.

First, we have implemented new cheat detection methods that have allowed us to identify many more players currently using cheat engines in the game. We have already caught more cheaters in the last few days than we had in total during the previous weeks. As a result, we will be handing out the biggest wave of suspensions and bans to date over the course of the next few days. Second, when cheaters are caught, we will now apply a suspension of 14 days on first offense (instead of the previous 3 day initial suspension). Second offense will always be a permanent ban. We anticipate these two changes will noticeably improve your experience. New upgrades on cheat detection are underway.
