Over the past year, Activision has clamped down pretty hard on toxic behavior in the Call of Duty games, and the team has just released a report stating what they’ve achieved in the last 12 months. The biggest headline here is that more than 350,000 players have been banned for racist names and toxic behavior based on player submitted reports.
Here are the details:
- Banned over 350,000 accounts for racist names or toxic behavior based on player-submitted reports and an extensive review of our player-name database
- Deployed new in-game filters to catch potentially offensive user-names, clan tags or profiles
- Implemented new technology to filter potentially offensive text chat
- Implemented filters across 11 languages
In addition to all that, the team goes on to state that they’re still working on improving their enforcement policies and ability to monitor player behavior, as well as increase communication with the community to reduce toxic behavior in multiplayer games.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is the latest entry in Activision’s popular first-person shooter franchise, and is now available on PC and consoles.
