Warzone Developer Says Cheaters Ruin His Work
Call of Duty: Warzone's rampant cheating troubles are taking a toll on the developers behind the game, and Raven Software's creative director has spoken out about the frustration he faces working on the game.
Amos Hodge leads development on Warzone, and he told VGC about how hard it is to see his game defaced by cheaters, saying "no one hates the cheaters more than we [the developers] do."
"We make this content for the players and while you're upset that it ruined your game, I'm upset that it's ruining some of the best work that I've done in my life."
I made this content for players and I know that everyone around the team feels that way. We put our hearts into this content, we have 100 million players, it’s been out a year, this is a huge stage and some of the best work we’ve ever done, and to have cheaters come in and ruin the game bothers us more than anyone."
Activision continues to hand out bans left and right in Warzone. On April 13 it claimed to have permanently banned more than 475,000 accounts since the game's launch in March 2020, and it's constantly working on new ways to catch hackers before they can damage the play experiences of others.
