Call of Duty: Warzone Servers Go Down as Player Bans Continue to Rise Past 70,000

Call of Duty: Warzone is in a crazy state right now.

If you tried to play Call of Duty: Warzone today, you more than likely encountered a few major issues. These issues occurred early this morning with a few incidents still continuing for players on home consoles. However, there have not been any PC issues reported at all.

While this is a common occurrence,  the servers were down for quite some time, with the number of player bans skyrocketing. A highly unusual amount of player bans have been occurring this week regarding the latest incarnation of Call of Duty: Warzone. 70,000 to be exact (and counting).

Now, if this was World of Warcraft, I wouldn’t be surprised. The amount of modding and cheating that people pour into that game is seemingly infinite, but for Call of Duty? In particular on console? Seems pretty odd.

Infinity Ward released this official statement just a few hours ago.

Many people have already written back in response to Activision/Blizzard on Twitter. Most have been memeing about and complaining. Most tweets are dedicated to the lack of Warzone time and people complaining about the seeming amount of cheaters. However, this tweet stood out.

When there are more updates from Activision/Blizzard, our ESTNN staff will be sure to inform you. For more Call of Duty and esports news, follow ESTNN on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
