Activision Publishing, Inc. has officially filed a lawsuit against the cheat-manufacturing company CXCheats today, Aug. 30, over allegations of illegal hack and exploit creation by them in Activision's Call of Duty: Warzone.

The company responded on their Discord server, explaining in a statement that they will be removing all COD-related content for the foreseeable future. According to CXCheats, they are being explicitly sued for violating Activision's terms of service.

"As a result of our lawsuit with Activision, we have agreed to cease development and support for all Call of Duty related products or services sold through the site. These products will not be returning to CXCheats in any form," the owner wrote.

They went on to add that any use of third party tools in Activision properties such as Warzone may result in the suspension or outright ban of a player's account.

Additionally, CXCheats issued an official apology to Activision and its players for "any pain we've caused."

From this moment onward, no COD or Warzone-related tools will be available through CXCheats. Anyone found to still be using such tools will be "subject to penalty" and could be banned from the server indefinitely.

This will likely come as a relief to many players as it's common knowledge that Warzone has suffered an issue with hacking and hackers since its release. However, many were quick to point out that a potential chain of lawsuits won't replace good anti-cheating practices going forward.

Activision has yet to comment on the lawsuit at the time of writing.
