Activision ignores Warzone anti-cheat as streamers switch to Apex Legends
Activision is continuing to ignore an anti-cheat system for CoD and Warzone, leading to more players jumping over to Apex Legends.
During Activision’s most recent Investor Call, they once again neglected to discuss a Call of Duty anti-cheat system, despite the fact that many players and streamers are switching over to Apex Legends Season 10.
Call of Duty is in a precarious spot at the moment. Black Ops Cold War is moving along nicely during the year with more content planned for the game and setting up a healthy transition over to Call of Duty: Vanguard.
However, Warzone is a bit more complicated at the moment as the endless cheating and hacking is drawing people away from the game. In particular, big streamers like NICKMERCS are now favoring Apex Legends.
Activision held their quarterly Investor Call on August 3, and it featured no mention of the much sought-after anti-cheat system. This may make things worse, especially with huge titles like Halo: Infinite and Battlefield 2042 on the way.
Even though Season 5 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone has just been announced, the talk is still very much about Warzone and its problems.
As pointed out by CoD Twitter page ModernWarzone: “There was no mention of an anti-cheat for #Warzone in today’s Activision Blizzard’s quarterly earnings call. It was never expected to be mentioned unless someone specifically asked a question regarding it, but that didn’t happen either.”
For the last few seasons of the battle royale shooter, players have to contend with one issue after another. The stim glitch, invincibility-causing God Mode glitches, players getting under the map, unbreakable gas masks, and many more.
It seems like many have reached a breaking point, including big-name streamers too. NICKMERCS has lost the desire to play Warzone and is now moving across to play Apex Legends to enjoy its new Season 10 content drop.
It’s not only Apex Legends that is the big concern for Warzone at the moment. The Halo Infinite flight test has just concluded, further building hype for the legendary sci-fi shooter’s newest entry.
Battlefield 2042 is closing in day-by-day, and players are even onboard the new trend train with Splitgate – described as Halo meets portals.
Unless Activision is secretly developing their own anti-cheat software, might there come a point where it will be too late?
