Call of Duty devs say "cheaters aren't welcome"

By Heidi Nicholas,
The Call of Duty team has taken to Twitter with a message for cheaters: "there's no tolerance for cheaters, and soon you'll know what we mean."

The tweet emphasises that the devs are aiming for a "fun and fair gaming experience" for Call of Duty players, adding, "cheating ruins the fun for everyone. No one likes a cheater... cheaters aren't welcome." The slightly ominous phrasing of the message is capped with the warning: "see you tomorrow."

The devs have taken anti-cheating measures before — most memorably back in September, when 150,000 cheaters were banned in a week — and Activision and Raven Software confirmed that an anti-cheat system was on the way along with Call of Duty: Vanguard. Tomorrow (October 14th) was already set to mark the premiere of Call of Duty: Vanguard's Zombies mode, which takes place at 8am PT and which promises a "sinister twist" to the fan-favourite mode, and now it seems we can also expect to hear more about anti-cheating measures. We'll be sure to update you with any major news. In the meantime, what do you think of this message? Let us know in the comments!
