Warzone is finally stepping up its anti-cheat game, confirms a new interview with Activision’s Rob Kostich.
Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the best battle royale experiences of all time, but it has its fair share of issues too. Most notable of all is its abundance of cheaters who ruin the game for many users.
All it takes is one hacker to get into a game and that’s the end of the fun for 100+ players. And despite Activision banning over 475,000 cheaters since Warzone’s launch, the issue is still prevalent.
Over the last few months, content creators and fans alike have been begging Activision to implement a proper anti-cheat into Warzone. Many even believe that Warzone anti-cheat must not even be possible, after all this time.
Warzone Anti-Cheat Improvements Coming in Season 3?
In a new interview with VentureBeat, Activision Publishing President Rob Kostich reveals that Warzone anti-cheat will soon be improving.
Recently, Activision has been far more vocal about its cheater situation. The company has been providing updates whenever another major Warzone ban wave goes live – and it’s clear that work is being done behind the scenes.
Kostich reveals that Warzone has a “dedicated security team” to deal with the hackers drawn to any large-scale free-to-play game. It’s unclear as to how long this deterrent has been active, but that’s far from Activision’s final move.
“We’re investing more resources there to make sure we provide the best possible experience for our fans. We have to take action, and also communicate about that, which we’re going to do.”
In fact, when it comes to Warzone’s cheating crisis, Activision Publishing’s President assures fans that the company will “continue to do a better and better job of communicating with the community very frequently.”
On top of this, Warzone’s broken meta may soon be a thing of the past. In the recent Warzone Season 3 patch notes, Raven Software is clearly taking more notice of the weapon meta than ever before.
Adjusting Warzone’s most overpowered weapons and even preemptively nerfing guns to keep a balanced meta, all while explaining why each change was made – this is exactly what players want to see from the developers.
And with over 100 million players enjoying Warzone, it’s a good time for the game to get some much-needed improvements. After all, EA’s new BATTLEFIELD announcement has a lot of players getting ready to jump ship.
Hopefully, further improvements are arriving in Warzone Season 4, which Activision is already planning ahead of schedule.
And Activision will be turning even more heads with Warzone’s next-gen patch for PS5 and Xbox Series X soon.
