Activision blocks Warzone Tracker App due to breach of terms and services
The popular Overwolf statistics tracker app for Warzone has been blocked by Activision, with players no longer able to run the application when they play the Call of Duty battle royale.
Warzone exploded onto the video game world in 2020. It quickly became one of the most popular battle royale games globally, with millions of players playing to rack up eliminations and wins.
As with most multiplayer games, players enjoyed keeping track of their statistics when they were playing to see how they were doing and improvements they may make over time.
One of the most popular methods members of the community used to track their stats was the Warzone Tracker App from Overwolf and Tracker Network.
However, the start of Season 3 of Warzone has seen this particular tracker app officially blocked by Activision due to the app causing a breach of terms and services and no longer available for players to use when they are playing.
According to a report by COD Tracker, players using the Overwolf and Tracker Network Warzone app were greeted with the following message when they booted up the battle royale.
“A third-party application that goes against Call of Duty: Warzone terms and services has been detected on this computer.
To continue to enjoy the gameplay and to help preserve the competitive integrity of Call of Duty: Warzone, please close this third-party application and restart the game.”
Overwolf released a statement regarding the app’s blocking and stated that they are currently “in the midst of a good conversation with Activision at the highest levels.”
The developer also went on to state that they are currently removing support for Overwolf apps from Warzone, but “based on the feedback we received from Activision, I’m optimistic we’ll find a safe and sustainable way to resume support for the game,” said Overwolf.
Users of the Overwolf and Tracker Network Warzone app can fill out a survey and provide their thoughts on the application for Call of Duty: Warzone, which Overwolf will go on to share with Activision in the hope to restore the ability for the app to be used by players when they are playing.
