Call of Duty recently released a new blog on their website, viewers read that players that are caught cheating in the game may find themselves banned from the entire franchise including previous games and titles yet to come. The series’ anti-cheat department team, Ricochet, posted an update on their security actions and the continued development of its Ricochet anti-cheating technology.
In the past, changes have been made to the security enforcement policy for the game Vanguard which also states that players caught cheating within his game will get a permanent ban which includes titles beyond the specific title that was being played at the time.
Within the blog on the Call of Duty website states that: “Permanent suspensions are lasting and final, and can apply across this title and past, present and future titles in the Call of Duty franchise.” In the blog, the studio explains that permanent suspensions such as this one will only be taken as a procedure if “extreme or repeated violations of the security policy” for example, in game cheating. It will also be applied to players who attempt to ‘hide, disguise or obfuscate’ their identity or the identity of their hardware devices.
In addition to this, there are also temporary suspensions that can be given as sanctions to players which can range from between two days and two weeks depending on the severity of the action committed by the player. However, after waiting out this periodic sanction, players will be able to return to the game as usual.
Plans for the new anti-cheat system were first revealed to players back in August as a part of Call of Duty: Vanguards announcement. Therefore, players can expect Call of Duty to crack down a lot harder when it comes to violating the rules of the game.
