  • As Expected, Activision Blizzard is Looking to Weasel Way Out of California Lawsuit

    The game studio has requested additional time in order to investigate potential ethics violations.

    Activision Blizzard has just requested for additional time in their legal battle against the California Department of Fair and Equal Housing. The studio says that they need time in order to investigate and possibly disqualify the lawsuit that was brought on by the DFEH back in July 2021. This request stems from a potential ethics violation that sprung up from its other legal battle that...

  • Call of Duty's New Anti-cheat has Apparently Leaked Online Just One Day After Being Announced

    It's already being reverse engineered by cheat makers.

    Over the span of just three days, we had Activision issuing a threat against cheaters, the reveal of Ricochet, the new kernel-level anti-cheat coming to Call of Duty, and now today that anti-cheat has apparently already been leaked. Not only that, but Ricochet is apparently already being reverse engineered by "pay to cheat" (P2C) developers.

  • Call of Duty's New Anti-Cheat, Ricochet, to Use Kernel-Level Driver

    Call of Duty's New Anti-Cheat, Ricochet, to Use Kernel-Level Driver

    This is about as invasive an anti-cheat as you can get.

    On October 12, the Call of Duty devs issued a vague, ominous, and really cringey warning to cheaters. As it stands, the new anti-cheat for Call of Duty: Warzone wasn't slated to be released until Call of Duty: Vanguard released later this year. So, what then were they teasing to be revealed today?

    Well, it was the reveal announcement for their new anti-cheat. They call it Ricochet, which is not to be confused with...

  • Call of Duty Cheaters Issued Ominous Threat from Activision

    Call of Duty Cheaters Issued Ominous Threat from Activision

    I guess Activision is... rising up?

    Look cheaters, you best not mess with Call of Duty devs because they're one step away from leveling up and you look like just enough XP. If that made you cringe, you're in the right place to see even more cringe.

    The Call of Duty twitter account issued a weird, kind of ominous, kind of cringe-filled threat to cheaters today. In their all caps message, the account said that "CHEATERS AREN'T WELCOME" and that "SOON YOU'LL...

    Activision Blizzard Lawsuits Hit a Major Snag

    There may be a conflict of interests that are muddying the waters.

    Stick with me on this, because this is probably going to be a little confusing. At the end of September 2021, Activision Blizzard settled a lawsuit brought on by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for the lowly amount of $18 million (USD). This lawsuit would be used to "compensate and make amends" for employees impacted by the rampant sexual discrimination and harassment that has been...

    Call of Duty: Vanguard Official Reveal

    Reveal trailer omits "Activision."

    The full reveal for Call of Duty: Vanguard happened today. There is a three-minute long trailer for it you can find below if you're so inclined. One thing that really isn't mentioned in the trailer is who is publishing the game. It seems like Activision is really nowhere to be found in the trailer, even at the very end there's a weird omission of the Activision logo.

    Maybe they're just trying to distance the game from, you know,...
