In a blog post outlining the measures it’s taking to combat cheating, the publisher said it’s operating a “zero tolerance” policy with the free-to-play shooter, which launched on March 10 and attracted 30 million users within 10 days.
“We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities,” it said.
“We have been enforcing account bans since Day 1 of Warzone’s release. To date, we issued more than 50,000 permabans worldwide.”
Activision said it has a security team working around the clock to investigate cheating and hacking, including the use of aimbots and wallhacks, and that it’s developing a more streamlined in-game reporting system.
Going forward, it also plans to “provide a regular count on the latest number of bans issued, as needed”.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 3 could see Duos and Quads playlists added to Warzone in early April, according to recently datamined info.
