Call Of Duty: Warzone Developer Gives Update On Ricochet, Promises More Updates

It appears that Call of Duty’s new anti-cheat soft­ware, Ric­o­chet, will con­tin­ue to get bet­ter over time, as promised by Activi­sion. In a recent inter­view with stream­er Tyler “TeepP” Pol­chow, devel­op­er Josh Bridge from Raven Soft­ware said the anti-cheat for War­zone has been good so far but there is more that can be done to thwart cheaters and hackers.

Bridge start­ed off by say­ing that hav­ing a ded­i­cat­ed team focused entire­ly on the anti-cheat has been “the biggest shift” for fight­ing cheaters over the past year.

His­tor­i­cal­ly, it was the dev teams hear­ing about a cheat and try­ing to scram­ble and plug holes. So now hav­ing a team dedicated–always there–with tech­nol­o­gy, soft­ware, mon­i­tor­ing, and try­ing to go after it as fast as we can. And it keeps get­ting bet­ter,” Bridge said (via Char­lieIn­tel).

The dev went on to say that Activi­sion isn’t able to always com­mu­ni­cate trans­par­ent­ly about its anti-cheat, the obvi­ous rea­son being this would cheaters an advan­tage. In any case, Bridge said Ric­o­chet is going to “keep grow­ing and get bet­ter and better.”

Ric­o­chet has already helped to ban more than 90,000 Call of Duty accounts–as of last week alone. War­zone is one of the biggest free-to-play games avail­able on the mar­ket, so cheaters are like­ly always going to be an ele­ment of the game.

Call of Duty: War­zone has start­ed its Sea­son 2 Reloaded, which has brought some big adjust­ments to Rebirth Island. Look­ing ahead, Snoop Dogg will be mak­ing an appear­ance in the fran­chise as a playable char­ac­ter in April.
