Late this week, Respawn has posted a development update on Reddit, showing they cracked down cheater on Apex Legends. According to their post, Respawn has banned over 770,000 accounts on PC since the game’s launch in February.
The developer also stated that, more than 300,000 accounts have been blocked for cheating and spamming, 4,000 of them had to do with cheat selling. The company says that games that are normally affected by cheaters have been reduced to half this last month, thanks to anti-cheat efforts.
Respawn has been working closely with EA’s security and fraud team to crack down on cheaters, as well as developers from EA DICE, EA Vancouver’s FIFA team, and EA Capital Games.
“While we can’t share details on what we’re doing so as to not give a head’s up to the cheat makers, what we can say is that we’re attacking this from every angle, from improvements to detecting cheaters, bolstering resources and tools, to improving processes and other sneaky things to combat sellers and cheaters,” Respawn wrote in the Reddit post.
