Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind the new battle royale game, Apex Legends have reportedly banned 355,000 players for cheating. The ban came in through their Easy Anti Cheat.
The community manager of Respawn, Jay Frechette said in a Reddit post that they have banned atleast 355,000 players and that there are more to come.
“The service works but the fight against cheaters is an ongoing war that we’ll need to continue to adapt to and be very vigilant about fighting. We take cheating very seriously and care deeply about the health of Apex Legends for all players,” Frechette said.
Jay acknowledged the problem of hackers and also mentioned their workings in and outside the EA studios to learn more about hackers.
“We’re keeping a lot of our strategy close to the chest so offenders don’t have time to build workarounds before we implement changes,” Frechette said. “Solutions won’t happen right away but we’re on it.”
