Soon after, ModernWarzone confirmed that an anti-cheat has been in the works for over a year and while the silent treatment from Activision has been annoying, it's great to see that something is being done about one of the few things that are tarnishing Warzone.

Henderson also noted that the Battlefield 2042 Technical Alpha will also include anti-cheat.

With Raven Software saying more information will be arriving "soon," is there a chance that the anti-cheat arrives sooner than Q4? We will have to wait and see. Regardless of timeframe, this news is certainly positive for the battle royale which has been plagued by cheaters for several months.
