Call of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward has just tweeted out that it will be banning PC players using any third party software. “Update re: PC bans – Any players found using 3rd party software will be permanently banned in #CODGhosts.” The developer even linked to an official post on Code of Conduct.
The funny part? A major third party software that players have been using for the PC version of Ghosts which helps improve the field of view (FOV) in the game, thus called an FOV Changer, is apparently banned. We say “apparently” because it isn’t clarified in the Code of Conduct – it hasn’t helped that Infinity Ward themselves stated in the past that FOV changes are allowed.
As of now, there haven’t been reports of FOV Changers being banned but it is still an unofficial, third party software. How will Infinity Ward handle it going forward? Will they perhaps finally just fix the FOV themselves? We’ll have to wait and see.
