Activision bans over 50,000 cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone

Activision is taking a "zero tolerance" approach towards cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone. In a new blog post, the publisher announced that it has permanently banned over 50,000 players who have been cheating.

Warzone was released just over three weeks ago. Since day one, Activision has been banning players who have been caught cheating — that figure now exceeds 50,000 players. "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," says Activision.

The publisher has put in place several measures to combat cheaters and those who provide cheats. Security teams are said to be monitoring the game 24/7 to identify potential infractions. They also review all known cheats and hacks, so tools like aimbots and wallhacks can be identified. Activision is also planning on improving the in-game system for reporting cheaters.

"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. Rest assured, we’re committed to ensuring a fun and fair experience for everyone."

Activision will be providing updates on the number of player bans issued in the future.

In other Call of Duty news, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered was recently announced; however, it's a limited-time PS4 exclusive, and won't be seen on an Xbox console until the end of April.
