As many content creators continue to quit playing popular battle royale Warzone, publisher Activision has finally published a statement regarding cheating across the Call of Duty franchise. 

In a blog post published on February 2nd, the publisher revealed that a total of 60,000 accounts had been banned for using cheats in a 24-hour period. It also revealed that more than 300,000 permanent bans have taken place since Warzone launched in March 2020.

Since the battle royale launched and cheating became a widespread issue, Activision is said to have implemented backend security updates on a weekly basis along with improved in-game reporting mechanisms, enabling players to report cases of cheating easily.

In a bid to clamp down on cheaters across all Call of Duty titles, Activision has revealed that it is making "enhancements to internal anti-cheat software" and more effort to provide clearer communications when it comes to updating the community regarding cheating.

While it's great to see Activision communicating on what has become an issue that continues to plague all Call of Duty titles, only 60,000 bans on a title that features tens of millions of players is just the tip of the iceberg.

Let's hope these new and improved measures yield some form results as soon as possible.
