Upcoming Game Call of Duty May Have Better Anti-Cheat System

A new Call of Duty game is set to release later this year with a tentative title Vanguard. According to a prominent leaker, it may be released with an improved anti-cheat system that may deter hackers and cheaters from using tools meant to disrupt the fun experience.

Tom Henderson, a renowned Call of Duty leaker, tweeted that the new anti-cheat system has been in development for more than a year. They’ve added that the same system may be implemented in Call of Duty: Warzone as well.

It is no question that Warzone and other COD games have experienced their fair share of hackers and cheaters. While Activision and Raven Software have initiated numerous ban waves and even put an end to a popular hacking tool, it seems that so many cheaters are still present in the game.

If this new anti-cheat system is imposed, it may deter these people from playing the game, assuming that it does a fine job of preventing hacking tools from working.

While the imposition of this system is a good thing for a battle royale game like Warzone, some people are not too impressed.

User @TowersTrev tweeted that even though it could potentially work, some people will learn how to circumvent the system, so the most passionate of hackers may not be affected by this. Another user said that it is "too little, too late."

New Map

In other news, Tom Henderson tweeted that the next map coming to Warzone will completely replace Verdansk and may potentially bring players back to World War II.

The Call of Duty leaker added that the new map will launch at the same time the new COD game is released.

In addition, Henderson said in a follow-up tweet that the weapons in Black Ops: Cold War and Modern Warfare will still be available on the new map. They’ve added that the cosmetics may be transferred as well.

If what Henderson said is true, user @oMedzy has an interesting point. If players are sent back to the World War II era, it wouldn’t make sense to make modern guns available on the new map. Perhaps sticking to World War II guns would be the most appropriate thing that the developers will do in this regard.

The new Call of Duty game does not have an official release date yet, though it is expected to arrive later this year.

What do you think? Will the new anti-cheat system protect the upcoming game?
