Activision promised to devote more resources to clearing out cheaters from Warzone, as well as confirming they will be opening up better lines of communication with players.
Warzone isn’t the only game having issues with cheaters right now but the problem is only getting worse in Warzone since it released.
Aim bots, wallhacks, and god mode cheaters have been plaguing Verdansk, while innocent players have been begging Activision to take action and implement a better anti-cheat system.
Raven Software and Activision have made efforts recently to clamp down on the cheaters, including taking action against the cheat sellers and dishing out wave after wave of bans. Now they’ve promised to do even more.
Following the launch of the new Verdansk 1984 and nuke event. Rob Kostich, Activision president confirmed that 500,000 players have been banned from the game for cheating.
The developers are going to increase security and communicate more with players. Communication (or lack of) has been a major issue for the Call of Duty community.
“We have a dedicated security team. We’re investing more resources there to make sure we provide the best possible experience for our fans.” Kostich said in an interview with GamesBeat. “We have to take action, and also communicate about that, which we’re going to do.”
Communication was the key point for Kostich, this doesn’t just mean more communication around cheaters. It also means they will be more open about leaks and suprise weapon changes.
We don’t have any more information about any anti-cheat upgrades coming to the game, it could just be an increase in the amount of people working on the security team at Activision, to deal with more reports. It could even be more developers working on better anti-cheat. When more information comes out, we’ll be sure to let you know.
