Will I get Banned Playing Online Games on Windows 11?

If you’re excited to try out the Windows 11 preview that launched recently, but playing online games specially Warzone, you might want to hold off. The game’s anti-cheat is currently flagging the Windows 11 preview build and is allegedly shadowbanning players. This puts you in lobbies with other cheaters.

You’ll probably run into similar issues with any game that uses hardcore anti-cheat solutions like BattleEye or Easy Anti Cheat.

Since shadowbans and game bans affect your account, not your specific Windows install, reverting to Windows 10 won’t undo your ban.

Your best bet is to avoid playing online games while using the preview build until Microsoft and game developers sort things out.
