Raven Software recently took to Twitter to announce that they have removed another 50,000 accounts suspected of cheating from the massively successful battle royale. In the tweet, the developer also mentioned that they are hard at work behind the scenes.
Notable leaker Tom Henderson also took to Twitter following this announcement, sharing his insights on the matter and suggesting that a new anti-cheat system has been in the works for over a year. This isn’t much of a surprise, since Call of Duty: Warzone has had a huge cheating problem and the developer has banned over 500,000 accounts as of the time of writing.
Of course, adding fuel to the fire are the recently surfaced promotional videos of a cheating software powered by ML, which also claims to work on consoles. Activision responded to the matter by pulling down many such videos, and this recent rumor seems to be a direct response to this growing problem.
🚫 Today we banned over 50,000 accounts in #Warzone.
More importantly, we are listening and hard at work behind the scenes.
We will have more info for you soon.

A new anti-cheat system for the next Call of Duty title has been in development for over a year. The same system will be implemented into Warzone.
