CHEATERS have been rife in online gaming for years, but Call of Duty has just issued them their marching orders.
The game’s Twitter account has officially given notice to all cheaters that the days of spoiling everyone’s one are over.
Activision has been beating the drum of its impending new anti-cheat measures for a while now.
This week’s message doubles down on its position, calling out cheaters and telling them their days are numbered.
“Dear Cheaters, we love games. It’s our passion. We’re honored to make games for the greatest fans in the world.
“We don’t always get it right, but we’re committed to doing our best.
“Cheating ruins the fun for everyone. No one likes a cheater. Our goal is to deliver a fun and fair gaming experience.
“For our developers. For our fans. And most importantly… for Call of Duty Players everywhere.
“Cheaters aren’t welcome. There’s no tolerance for cheaters, and soon you’ll know what we mean.”
The message was relayed via an image on Twitter and accompanied by an ominous “see you tomorrow”.
Raven Software announced that the “brand-new, multifaceted anti-cheat system for PC” would be rolling out alongside Warzone’s new Pacific map.
The blog post says the new map will release after Call of Duty: Vanguard launches next month.
So presumably today’s update will see the devs share more details on it, a well as what cheaters can expect to encounter.
Whatever the new system entails, the developers seem pretty confident based on the social media posts.
You can’t talk a big game and then not follow through.
Stay tuned to see what Activision has up its sleeve later today.
