While we will welcome in a few weeks Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 but also the next Battle Royale Call of Duty: Warzone 2 , it seems that the Activision studio wants to clear the way before the release of the latter . Indeed, to our surprise, the studio announced that it has thousands of Call of Duty accounts in order to " eliminate community toxicity ". Could it be too late for Call of Duty: Warzone?
Activision deletes 500,000 Call of Duty accounts
We would like to say, "better late than never", but such a decision on the part of Activision is quite surprising, finally, yes and no, we explain ourselves. As you know, Call of Duty: Warzone is living its last moments through its Season 5 , and the same goes for Call of Duty: Vanguard. After that, the two titles will no longer benefit from content updates, and it will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's turn to take over, for two years. But then, why carry out such an action a few days before their death?
Activision has indeed decided to delete no less than 500,000 Call of Duty accounts , in order to offer players a better gaming experience and a better quality of life. And while this decision may seem a little surprising given the situation, we can easily imagine that the developers decided to do this so that future Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 players could enjoy gameplay without cheaters and without toxicity in the community.
According to Activision (via CharlieIntel's tweet), the studio would have deleted 500,000 accounts, and forced 300,000 others to change their names . As a result of these metrics, the studio revealed that Warzone saw a " 55% drop in the number of offensive username and clan tag reports from our players, year-over-year, in the month of August alone. ”
In addition to the cheaters that we can find in spades, but which are quickly removed thanks to the RICOCHET anti-cheat system, we can clearly see that Activision also wants to eradicate the slightest toxicity, and that's good. As a result, there is also a new code of conduct that has been put in place.
New Call of Duty Driving Mode
As we were telling you, Activision has worked hard to put in place a new code of conduct, and here are the new rules to follow:
- Treat everyone with respect
Communication with others, whether through text or voice chat, should be free of offensive or harmful language.
- Compete with integrity
You are responsible for how your account is used. The use of cheats, including third-party software, is unacceptable. Exploiting bugs or engaging in any activity that gives an unfair advantage is considered cheating.
- stay alert
To promote an enjoyable gaming experience, use the in-game tools to report any incidents or inappropriate behavior you encounter.
