DICE to hire anti-cheat administrator

Written by David Stellmack



About time they try something different


After hearing the complaints of the Battlefield community for years, DICE has finally decided to take a new approach to address the cheating that continues to be rampant within the PC Battlefield community.

This new tact involves the hiring of what DICE is calling an “anti-cheat administrator” that will work for DICE and whose sole job will be to curb, if not eliminate, cheating in Battlefield titles. (While we suspect initially the focus will be on the PC platform, we think they will also be addressing cheating on console platforms.) It is clear that DICE is sick of the cheating issues, and is making good on its promise to redouble its efforts to deal with cheaters.

While it is too early to tell what kind of power or what kind of action the new anti-cheat administrator might take, sources tell us that the anti-cheat administrator will have access to the full resources of DICE and will be responsible for the development of some sort of a comprehensive plan to deal with the cheating problems.

While we know cheating can’t be totally eliminated, we do think it is possible to curb it in such a way that will make cheating at Battlefield much less attractive.
