Activision hates cheaters, and while some will say it doesn’t show in the game, the company is working hard to try and tackle this scourge. A few months ago, the publisher of the famous Call of Duty franchise announced the ban of 20,000 cheaters including a streamer. This time, Activision decides to hit even harder by announcing a new wave of bans of more than 60,000 cheaters spotted on Call of Duty and Warzone. As we can see, Activision decided to sort it out, and to date more than 300,000 players have been permaban since the launch of Warzone.
Activision does not lose sight of its objective
The Call of Duty franchise took the opportunity to reiterate that its goal of zero tolerance for cheaters has remained the same forever. Although it has become difficult to ban all cheaters from the game, Activision is now going to the source by focusing more on developers of scripts and other cheat software, preventing their distribution to the general public. Gradually, the Activision teams manage to make the gaming experience more enjoyable, but it is not yet enough.
Either way, a spokesperson says: “We know that cheaters are always on the lookout for vulnerabilities, and we continue to dedicate resources 24/7 to identifying and combating cheaters, including aimbots, wallhacks, trainers, stat hacks, hacks. texture, ranking hacks, injectors, hex editors, and any third-party software used to manipulate game data or memory ”.
It is also important to clarify that Call of Duty is one of the most popular franchises in the world, which inevitably tends to attract a large amount of cheaters. Call of Duty is currently in fourth place in this ranking with more than 300 million sales in all editions. We find the unbeatable Mario at the top of this ranking followed by Pokémon, and Grand Theft Auto.
