Developers Raven Software has confirmed a new ban wave that has removed thousands of accounts from Call of Duty Warzone ahead of Season 5.
This is something that has happened many times in the past, and it has never been enough to slow down the cheaters for long.
However, this time, something different has been shared, giving fans hopes that things could be different in the future.
Sharing its latest setup to ban cheating accounts, Raven Software also confirmed that they had more plans to share in the future.
And while this doesn’t mean we’re about to receive more Warzone Anti Cheat support during Season 5, there’s a good chance another announcement is coming our way.
The message from Raven Software reads: “Today we banned over 50,000 accounts in Warzone.
“More importantly, we are listening and hard at work behind the scenes. We will have more info for you soon.”
There have been rumours that the new Call of Duty anti cheat support is in the works and has been since 2020.
But until we learn more, there’s a chance that Warzone Anti Cheat will be arriving during Season 5, which is expected to last several months.
Before any of that happens, gamers will be able to play the start of Warzone Season 5, which is scheduled to kick off later this on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The Call of Duty Warzone Season 5 update will be launching in the next 24-hours, with Friday, August 13 the scheduled release date.
The COD Season 5 start time has been set for 5am BST, with gamers across all platforms getting access at the same time.
Raven has also started to tease its next event, which will be centered around the Red Doors that can be found around Verdansk.
“Whatever broadcast Perseus set up is causing the Red Doors to become more volatile than ever before, as Operators are now reporting [[REDACTED]] in their post-mission briefings.
“Beware of these doors sending you to locations other than the main room we all thought to be its lone destination point, and above all else, keep your head.
“This event may also have something to do with those Mobile Broadcast Stations seen around Verdansk… but at this time, we cannot declassify further intel for fear of double agents.
“To help Stitch and Perseus bring about a new world order, this network of clandestine entities has deployed Mobile Broadcast Stations to boost the numbers signal all around Verdansk.
“As the name suggests, these mobile stations can be placed in a variety of locations in Verdansk, differing from match-to-match to keep one area from being signal boosted by the rewards they offer. See what they’re all about by going closer to them, but be sure to keep your head and tune out the broadcast each one emits.”
