Activision Bans Could Stop You From Playing Call Of Duty Ever Again

Call of Duty has always wanted to crack down on cheaters, but has never really been able to resist them for good. Of course, if a player is caught cheating or hacking in-game, then they'll earn themselves an Activision ban.

It's quite simple really, but the trouble is in actually finding those hackers. They're elusive and a bit of a nightmare for Call of Duty at large. But, it looks like the series is ready to deploy the big guns when it comes to deterrents. Watch out, hackers - this might convince you to stop.

Activision Bans: What Do They Mean?

The security enforcement policy of Ricochet anti-cheat introduced into Vanguard has been updated in a blog post that could jeopardise cheaters' future with the franchise - stating that "extreme or repeated violations" could result in a permanent ban in all Call of Duty titles. Including the ones that aren't even out yet.

The blog post reveals the harsh potential punishment along with some other details, suggesting that these bold Activision bans could be coming very soon.

"Extreme or repeated violations of the security policy - such as in-game cheating - may result in a permanent suspension of all accounts" reads the post. "Additionally, any attempt to hide, disguise, or obfuscate your identity or the identity of your hardware devices may also result in a permanent suspension.

"Permanent suspensions for security infractions may now apply franchise wide, including Call of Duty: Vanguard as well as any past, present, and future titles in the Call of Duty franchise." Blimey.

Activision Bans: Will They Actually Stop Hackers?

This threat from Team Ricochet is pretty hefty, and widely unforgiving - but there's every chance it could actually work. Hackers are only cheating in Call of Duty specifically because they like it to some degree - so the notion that they'd never be permitted to play another game in the franchise must be a pretty scary one.

Whether or not we see numbers dip is still something we'll have to wait on, but regardless of whether this is an empty threat or not, it may just do the trick. Thank god for that.
