Call of Duty: Warzone anti-cheat has been in desperate need of an overhaul. The amount of hackers in this game has become a major problem. Call of Duty: Vanguard will mark the overhaul of the anti-cheat a big priority. The game was just announced this week, but a new mainline game doesn’t mean that Treyarch and co. are abandoning the Warzone community.
The amount of hacking in Warzone has gotten to be a huge problem. From aimbots and wallhackers, the amount of invincible players has also exploded. Although the developers have carried out various ban waves, the problem has only gotten worse. Activision wants to make something clear, they’re planning to do something about all of this. The company announced the plan on Twitter in response to fan questions.
It’s highly likely that Call of Duty: Vanguard will also have its own anti-cheat solution. With 20 total multiplayer maps, the developers will want to ensure a fair game. It’s a big problem in online games, and a great way to ruin your launch, if you do nothing about cheaters. Warzone is still tons of fun, as it pulls in millions of players. but it’s a really good idea to have done something about cheating sooner.
There’s currently no date for when the new Call of Duty: Warzone anti-cheat system will drop. Players won’t have to wait too long, hopefully.
Call of Duty: Vanguard launches on November 5th. An open beta is expected to roll out in September, which will also reveal more about the game and its content.
