Call of Duty to get new anti-cheat, 50,000 Warzone cheaters banned this week

Raven Software has been banning tens of thousands of cheaters from Call of Duty: Warzone on a very regular basis lately. Just ahead of the new season, another 50,000 accounts were banned and better yet, new anti-cheat software is also being worked on. 

As of March 2020, over 500,000 cheaters had been banned from Warzone, although since then, at least 100,000 more accounts have been banned, including the 50,000 banned this week. The studio revealed this on Twitter, adding that “more importantly, we are listening and hard at work behind the scenes”.

As reported by VGC, reputable leaker, Tom Henderson, has stated that Activision is working on a new anti-cheat system for future Call of Duty games. This has been in development for over a year and will debut with Call of Duty: Vanguard later this year.

As you would expect, this same anti-cheat system will also carry over to Call of Duty: Warzone, although exactly how effective this new system will be still remains to be seen.

KitGuru Says: Cheaters have been poking holes in Call of Duty’s anti-cheat system for years, but perhaps we’ll finally have something robust. This is particularly important now, as cross-play between consoles and PC becomes more popular.
