Call of Duty: Warzone co-developer Raven Software has confirmed the number of accounts that have been banished from the servers due to cheating. Through a tweet that was quick to unravel warfare in itself, the developer announced that, as of yesterday, a total of half a million accounts have been wiped from the slate. Although the studio didn't explain the exact details behind the dismissal of the accounts, it has gone on to spark outrage with a Twitter collective.
As expected when bringing such news to light, Call of Duty: Warzone players have been quick to flock to the post to fight their corner over the slew of removals. With that said, Raven Software doesn't appear to be too pleased with the crooked schemes and overall tomfoolery of the situation. And if anything, it seems as though the co-developer will be looking to crack down even harder than before after passing such a whopping milestone.
Banned over 30,000 malicious accounts across Call of Duty yesterday… bringing us to over half a million accounts banned in #Warzone. 🚫

In other news…
As of April, Call of Duty: Warzone has enrolled over 100 million players to the platform. Update-wise, Raven Software is continuing to patch up the game and provide users with spools of exciting packs and skins. Overall, the battle royale entry is shaping up to be an absolute staple on the franchise. It's just a shame that so many users have resorted to cheating in order to stack against the odds of 100 million.
Hacks and cheats aside, Call of Duty: Warzone is on track to becoming one of the most celebrated multiplayer games in the eSports community. And, being a free-to-play title that boasts as much as other standalone entries, it's no wonder the battle royale chapter has gone on to break so many players. But as for what 2022 has in store for Warzone, well — only time will tell on that one.
Call of Duty: Warzone released last March on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. You can follow the updates for the game through the official handle here.
