More than 50,000 cheaters permanently banned from Call of Duty: Warzone
Activision has revealed that more than 50,000 cheaters have been permanently banned from Call of Duty: Warzone since launch.
“There’s no place for cheating in games. Warzone has zero tolerance for cheaters,” the publisher said in a blog post.
“We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities. This is an area we have been working on heavily, but it isn’t always something we discuss publicly.”
According to Activision, security teams are monitoring data 24/7 to “identify potential infractions” and “review all possible cheats and hacks.” The publisher also mentioned that the in-game system for reporting is being improved with plans to streamline the UI to make it easier to use.
“Simply put there’s no place for cheating. We recognize that there’s no single solution for combating cheaters, it’s a constant enforcement every day, 24/7,” the post added. “Rest assured, we’re committed to ensuring a fun and fair experience for everyone.”
Activision plans to provide regular updates on the number of players who have been banned.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
