A new update from Infinity Ward aims to combat the issue of cheats in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone. Revealed last month, the developer had blocked more than 50,000 players from the online battle royale mode. As a result, plans for new measures are to be imposed soon.
Today, Infinity Ward released a statement via Twitter on the subject of cheats. A new lobby is to be introduced, which will pit cheaters together against one another. The post indicates that there’ll be “additional dedicated security updates,” as well as “increased resources against backend tech.”

Reporting features will also be upgraded, giving more resources to players who want to report the cheats in a game. Better still, players will receive an in-game confirmation that the player they’ve flagged has been banned. The added functionality will be included, meaning cheats can be reported in Killcam and Spectate modes.
At this time, no time has been set for the update, but this is all set to go live next week. Ideally, we’d like to see a more detailed summary of the update. Recently, Warzone achieved a milestone of 50 million players, only one-month post-launch.
In the first 24 hours since the battle royale mode launched, it had already attained a staggering 6 million players. Days after release, Warzone was peaking at 15 million, and those numbers were only set to rise. To reach 50 million players, Warzone has been attracting more than a million gamers every day post-launch.
Activision also recently launched Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. The updated title of the 2009 classic is available for purchase on PS4 now.
Pre-purchase is available for other platforms, before its release next week, April 30. The remastered campaign features HD visuals, (up to 4K), and HDR support for console users.
