There are still worries, as many still believe hackers will find a way around these anti-cheats and still ruin the great multiplayer game.

How it works

  • It only works while playing Call of Duty: Warzone
  • It is not always-on.
  • It monitors the software and applications that interact with Call of Duty: Warzone.
  • When you shut down Call of Duty: Warzone, the driver turns off.

This is great news to hear from Call of Duty, and hopefully they will reveal a lot more in the near future as there is only less than a month until Call of Duty Vanguard is released.

For now we have to wait until it comes out to wait and see if it will work, but no doubt there is a huge amount of pressure on the developers to make sure it succeeds.
