Crytek claims that it won't be easy for cheaters to get away with what they do best–cheating–in "Crysis 2", because of certain various "anti-cheat measures" that they're implementing in the full release of the game.
The current playable release of the game–a multiplayer demo–has been largely plagued by cheaters online, who have scoured the servers of fun by using aimbots, speedhacks and wallhacks. Naturally, the game's forums have been rife with complaints about the hackers and fears that the retail release would also suffer from the same issues.
"Rest assured," says Crytek on the official blog, which claims to have listened to these complaints. "…although the demo does not have these features installed, our team has been working for some time on various anti-cheat measures that have been introduced for the retail release of Crysis 2. We would like to make sure everyone is aware of how important this issue is to us, and that we will continue to strive for a cheat-free community with Crysis 2."
We've heard such claims in the past, so it remains to be seen whether Crytek will succeed in dealing with the scourge.
