Following the news that Warzone console hacks were being developed, Activision has reportedly shut down the development, stopping it from ever releasing.

It was recently reported that Warzone console cheats were in development, allowing Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 players to install “the next generation of cheating.” Thanks to a voluntary anti-cheat group, players were warned that the hacks were on their way.

It appears that Activision took notice of this, too, with the videos advertising the cheat being taken down. Now, it appears Activision went one step further to nip it in the bud, shutting down development entirely.

Cheaters and hackers have been running rampant in Warzone since the game’s launch, with a developer saying that cheaters are “ruining some of the best work” of his life. Activision announced in April that they are “investing more” in anti-cheat, and have now clamped down in console cheats in development.

Twitter account ‘Anti-Cheat Police Department,’ who originally exposed the console cheats, shared an update from the cheat developer.

“At the request of Activision Publishing, Inc (“Activision”), I will no longer be developing or providing access to software that could be used to exploit their games,” announced the cheat developer. “My intent was never to do anything illegal. At the end of the video that brought attention to this project, it stated, ‘coming soon.’ The software was never published.”

After claiming that the software could also have “assistive benefits,” they said, “because of its potential negative impact, I will not be developing it further.”

Activision’s last major ban wave was back in May 2021, where they reported that over 500,000 Warzone accounts had been banned for cheating. The number of Warzone cheaters is reportedly on the rise again, so it’s possible that another ban wave will be announced soon.
