If this feature succeeds for Modern Warfare 2, Microsoft can’t ignore it

As with Overwatch 2, you’ll need a phone number to play Modern Warfare 2 when it launches later this year. This controversial new two-factor authentication will make it harder for cheaters, but it will also block anyone using a prepaid phone or VOIP number.

Just before releasing Overwatch 2, Blizzard announced that it would use an authentication method called SMS Protect. You would need to connect your Battle.net account to an active phone number to play hero shooter, making it much more difficult to get back into the game if you are found to be cheating and your account has been banned. Creating a new email and account is quite easy, but getting a new phone number is more complicated.
