Warzone anti cheat update: Raven reveal Call of Duty RICOCHET – Release date latest

UPDATE: The new Call of Duty Warzone Anti Cheat update has been revealed as Ricochet, a kernel-based driver system that will be implemented in both Warzone and Vanguard games as part of a wider server change.

“The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat initiative is a multi-faceted approach to combat cheating, featuring new server-side tools which monitor analytics to identify cheating, enhanced investigation processes to stamp out cheaters, updates to strengthen account security, and more. RICOCHET Anti-Cheat’s backend anti-cheat security features will launch alongside Call of Duty: Vanguard, and later this year with the Pacific update coming to Call of Duty: Warzone. In addition to server enhancements coming with RICOCHET Anti-Cheat is the launch of a new PC kernel-level driver, launching first for Call of Duty: Warzone.”

Server enhancements will arrive when Vanguard launches on November 5, while the same changes will become available in Warzone when the new Pacific Map launches. 

Meanwhile, the PC kernel-level drivers will go live in Warzone with the new map, and will arrive in Vanguard later in 2021. No set Anti Cheat release date has been announced, meaning all this could be subject to change. Details on the new Anti Cheat system can be found here.

ORIGINAL: Developers Raven Software will unveil its plans to add a new Call of Duty Warzone Anti Cheat system to the popular Battle Royale game. The reveal is happening today and could be one of the new elements that will help sustain its popularity.

While many gamers enjoy dropping into Verdansk and Rebirth Island, many others have quit out of frustration. And this isn’t connected to weapon nerfs or map changes, but due to the issue of cheating within Warzone.

Affecting those in the top tier lobbies, cheating ruins a match that can take up to 40 minutes to complete. So it’s no wonder that so many fans have left Verdansk behind due to the frustration of being bested hackers.

The good news is that a new Call of Duty Warzone Anti Cheat system is on the way and while it will take some convincing those who have already left to return, could be a bigger change than the arrival of the new map.

A new message released via the Call of Duty Twitter confirmed that an Anti Cheat system would be revealed today, telling fans:

“Cheating ruins the fun for everyone. No one likes a cheater. Our goal is to deliver a fun and fair gaming experience for our developers. For our fans. And most importantly… for Call of Duty players everywhere.

“Cheaters aren’t welcome. There’s no tolerance for cheaters, and soon you’ll know what we mean. See you tomorrow.”

Today’s reveal is expected to include the final release date of the new Anti Cheat system, and whatever new features are being planned to work with it in Call of Duty games.

This follows on from an earlier announcement from the company that confirmed its intentions to release a new Anti Cheat system later in 2021.

It reads: “Warzone is set to make Call of Duty history with a brand-new main map launching later this year! With development led by Raven Software, Warzone will also feature a new PC anti-cheat system across the entire experience when it launches with the new map.

“Call of Duty: Warzone will also continue to honour your past gameplay experiences as universal progression is set to continue. This means that players of Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, and Vanguard can look forward to the following:

“All content earned via a Battle Pass or purchased via a Store Bundle will carry forward. You can play one (or all) of the four integrated Call of Duty games – Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, Vanguard, and Warzone – and progress your Rank and Battle Pass. You can create Warzone weapon loadouts with content across Call of Duty titles.”

It’s unclear when the important news will be shared but the Anti Cheat system is expected to have been unveiled before 7pm BST.
