Activision bans 60,000 Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters

That brings the total number of permanent bans from the title to 300,000

Activision announced the permanent ban of 60,000 Call of Duty accounts for using cheat software in Warzone.

That brings the total number of bans to 300,000 since the title's launch in March 2020, the publisher said.

Going forward, Activision will reinforce its efforts to prevent cheating by bringing improvements to its anti-cheat software and "additional detection technology," the company said.

More resources will also be allocated to monitoring and enforcement, and there will be a "zero tolerance" for cheat providers, alongside "consistent and timely bans."

Activision permanently banned over 50,000 cheaters last April, just one month after Call of Duty: Warzone's launch.

The Call of Duty franchise drove Activision Blizzard's revenues up 52% year-on year, to $1.95 billion.
