The war continues.
Over 100,000 accounts were banned recently, according to Activision’s latest report on the Call of Duty cheating issue.
Recently, Activision stated that a new anti-cheat feature would be added to the Call of Duty: Warzone game later this year, following the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard. As of right now, though, the war against hackers and cheaters is still going on.
According to the company’s tweet, “A reminder to cheaters: our new PC anti-cheat is coming and we’re committed to pulling out active and repeat offenders today.” Last night, over 100,000 Call of Duty accounts were banned for violating the game’s terms of service.
It was revealed in May that Activision had banned more than 500,000 accounts for “racist names or toxic behavior” across numerous Call of Duty titles. Two weeks ago, Warzone’s developer reported that 50,000 accounts were banned in a single day, thus it appears that the bans are becoming worse.
Raven Software, the company behind Warzone, said there would be “additional enhancements” to the battle royale game in the future. While hacking and cheating have been a problem for the free-to-play battle royale game since it was released in March 2020, the latest news is optimistic.
Vanguard will indeed be launched on Nov. 5, and Warzone will get a major update to fit with the World War II theme not long after that date.
