- The Finals, a free-to-play shooter from Embark Studios, has gained popularity with its unique game show approach and has already reached 10 million players since its launch in December.
- However, the game’s first major ban wave has affected some innocent players, including Twitch streamers, leading to confusion among the community regarding the bans.
- Fortunately, some players have reported that their bans have been lifted, indicating that the developers are working to fix the issue, although there hasn’t been an official explanation yet.
A wave of bans that recently swept through The Finals community has targeted some players who don’t have a history of cheating. The free-to-play shooter from Embark Studios has proven to be a fun hit to close out the end of the year, but some players have unfortunately been falsely targeted in order to stop cheaters in The Finals.
The genre of free-to-play shooters is a large pool, but The Finals appears to have made this style of game its own with its fun approach. Styled as a game show, the way The Finals approaches matches puts a fresh spin on first-person shooters, which has made the game increasingly popular since its launch in early December. The Finals has already reached a huge milestone, gaining 10 million players just a few weeks after its release. Although the game is in its early stage of life, these past few weeks have looked quite promising for The Finals. However, with growth also comes growing pains, and the game’s first big player ban has hit some innocent players.

It appears that the first major ban attempt for The Finals happened overnight, leaving many players with banned accounts who have no record of cheating within the game. Tom Warren, Senior Editor for The Verge, broke the news via Twitter, stating that the bans have impacted many different players. Warren also added that Twitch streamers are being banned from the game, leaving many players curious as to why the bans seem so random.
Fortunately, some players have actually reported that the bans have officially been lifted from their accounts. Twitch streamer Gigz was one of the unlucky players to be hit with a ban, but he recently went to Twitter to share the good news that his account for The Finals is back up and running. With The Finals already being such a huge hit, it’s not surprising that cheaters have infiltrated the game, but it’s unfortunate that innocent players have been caught in the crossfire.
Although there hasn’t been any official word from the development team behind The Finals yet, there is already proof of bans being lifted, which is a good sign for players who are waiting to get their accounts back. The game may be a fresh release, but that hasn’t stopped The Finals from quickly building a community who have quickly latched onto the first-person shooter. False bans can be incredibly frustrating, but it seems as though developers are starting to fix the problem, and there will hopefully be an official explanation soon.
Framed as a game show, The Finals is a free-to-play multiplayer shooter that also supports melee combat. Embark’s FPS emphasizes destruction along with teamwork.
