Activision and developer Raven Software have announced that 60,000 cheaters have been banned from Call of Duty: Warzone in a single day.

Modern Warfare

If you've been following Warzone in recent weeks, you'll likely be aware of the significant cheating problem many players are running up against. It's become such an issue that several notable streamers and YouTubers have quit the game in protest, which even prompted mainstream media to report on the problem. The Call of Duty team has now uploaded a blog stating that they have a "zero tolerance for cheaters across Call of Duty and Call of Duty: Warzone" and that 60,000 accounts were recently met head-on with the ban hammer for using cheat software. More than 300,000 cheaters have been issued permabans since the game launched in March last year.

The team is also continuing its efforts to identify cheat providers who distribute third-party hacking software "at the source." Improvements are also being made to Warzone's internal anti-cheat software, and more resources are being dedicated to monitoring and enforcement.

Raven Software will be providing the Warzone community with "at least" monthly updates on the game going forward.
