Unscrupulous Call of Duty players might want to think twice about their cheating ways, as a new update from Team Ricochet, the series’ newly-improved anti-cheat measures, has warned that you could find yourself banned from the entire Call of Duty franchise.
The update reveals changes made to the security enforcement policy for Call of Duty: Vanguard, which confirms that extreme cheaters could see permanent bans that extend to more than just the game they’re playing on.
Yep, you could now find yourself banned from past and future Call of Duty games!
“Permanent suspensions are lasting and final, and can apply across this title and past, present, or future titles in the Call of Duty franchise,” it reads, although it notes that these cases only apply to “extreme or repeated violations of the security policy, such as in-game cheating.”
All our anti-cheat efforts are focused on fighting unfair play and protecting the player experience. Launching the server updates as part of the Ricochet Anti-Cheat system is the first step in our new anti-cheat security initiative and we’re working hard to make things as frustrating as possible for cheaters.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is now available for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. Meanwhile, rumors are already starting to fire up regarding next year’s entry, which is reportedly Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, and even chatter surrounding Call of Duty 2023 has reared its head.
