Call of Duty Cheaters May Receive Franchise-Wide PermaBans

Call of Duty Blog has a progress report on efforts at combating cheaters in Call of Duty: Vanguard using Activision's new RICOCHET anti-cheat system. This covers the launch of the new installment in the military shooter series as well as the upcoming updates to Call of Duty: Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale. The post also outlines security enforcement policy changes that could result in cheaters being permanently banned from the entire Call of Duty franchise:
Extreme or repeated violations of the security policy – such as in-game cheating – may result in a permanent suspension of all accounts. 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.
