It looks Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer is already in the hands of hackers on the Xbox 360. Numerous videos and reports came in over the weekend that saw hacks and exploits that could potentially put a damper on the Call of Duty: Ghosts launch fun.
Reports of aimbots, wallhacks, and XP exploits are said to still be active, even after a day one patch hit the console over the weekend. While there’s no doubt that Infinity Ward will be on the case, it’s unlikely that they get a patch out before launch at 12:00 am in North America. In fact, the exploits are still live, and the game has already launched in Australia.
Previous Call of Duty games have seen similar things happen in the past, and the development teams are no strangers to fixing these problems. The bad part about it is that there really isn’t anything that can do outside of patching the game. Banning these players only prompts to create new accounts. Banning their consoles only prompts them to use hacks to register them as a new device.
While XP hacks and prestige boosts are one thing, aimbots and wallhacks could be really frustrating for new players. We’ll have to wait and see how Infinity Ward addresses the issues.
