- Raven Software continues its strife against cheaters in Warzone
- The studio has announced that an additional batch of 50,000 accounts have been banned
- The hard labor will likely continue until Vanguard’s release
Raven Software announces yet another ban wave as efforts against cheaters continue.
A Warzone Ban Wave, Once Again
Call of Duty: Warzone’s developers Raven Software have released a new update on the cheating situation within a week of the previous announcement. This time 50,000 more compromised accounts of cheaters and cheat providers have been removed from the game. The news was shared by the company itself on its Twitter page.
The post ends with the “More to come” phrase, suggesting that Raven Software is doubling down on its anti-cheat endeavors and will remove accounts more frequently. This announcement comes just after another ban wave on August 25 which saw over 100,000 accounts getting banned.
Within a month Raven Software has issued a total of three ban waves as another such initiative got another 50,000 accounts banned in the second week of August.
Keeping The Game Healthy: A Hard Task
As a free title, Call of Duty: Warzone has had quite some issues with cheaters ever since it was first released. Lacking a reliable official anti-cheat tool of its own, the game heavily relies on player reports by players and active action on the developers’ side.
In the past months, both Raven Software and Activision Blizzard have worked hard to provide at least some relief to their players. Numerous ban waves have been issued and big-time cheaters have received hardware bans in order to be kept away.
Although Call of Duty: Warzone continues to be one of the big titles on the first-person shooter market, it has had some losses, mainly in terms of streamers leaving the game. Additionally, some of the people have been migrating to Apex Legends as the competitor title sports a built-in anti-cheat system. Although Easy Anti-cheat isn’t the most reliable solution, it definitely gives Apex some edge over Warzone.
Things are expected to change with the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard. When the new title gets on the market, an anti-cheat system will be implemented in Warzone as well. This is expected to finally provide a solution to the persistent problem in the long run.
