Infinity Ward has revealed some details in regards to the latest wave of bans in the recently-released multiplatform video game, “Call of Duty: Ghosts.” According to a report from Gaming Bolt on Jan. 19, a representative disclosed that the development team has banned 200 clans for cheating in the clan wars of the first-person shooter.
As a result, the clan points for the cheaters have been dropped to “-666” during the Rio de Janeiro event. Infinity Ward appears to be getting more aggressive due to the upcoming launch of the Diamond League Clan Wars, which is expected to begin next month.
The development team previously warned players not to take advantage in any glitches or exploits with “Call of Duty: Ghosts.” Those who get caught are subject to suspension or permanent ban. Due to the popularity of the series, the video games have been big targest for hackers looking to get a leg up on the rest of the competition.
“Call of Duty: Ghosts” came out last year for all of the major platforms. It was first launched for the Nintendo Wii U, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on Nov. 5th. The same software product was then made available for the PS4 on Nov. 15th and Xbox One on Nov. 22nd.
