Activision has banned RowdyRogan from Call Of Duty: Warzone. The 6-year-old Twitch streamer became something of a sensation earlier this year after consistently demonstrating skills well beyond his years in the battle royale, establishing himself as an unexpected hit within the Call Of Duty community.
Of course while Rogan has a ton of fans, concerns have consistently been raised over the fact that a 6-year-old boy is very publicly playing an 18-rated game. Now it looks as if Activision has decided to take action. During a Twitch stream on December 9th, Rogan and his dad attempted to login to Warzone only to discover that the account had been suspended.
In an update posted to the streamer's Twitter account, Rogan's family confirmed that everybody involved is currently trying to "handle the situation", and that they'll keep fans updated.
As some of you know, Rogan was banned from Warzone on stream tonight. The Team and us are currently trying to handle the situation and will keep you guys updated. Thank you for all the support. #FreeRogan pic.twitter.com/df1B28Fa8R

The reason behind the ban has yet to be explicitly stated by Activision, but it's widely believed that it does come to the simple fact that Rogan is too young to be playing Warzone. While many of Rogan's followers have offered messages of support and encouragement, others have suggested Activision was well within its rights to do what it did, given Rogan's age and the clear age rating on Warzone.
While there's been some confusion as to whether or not underage gamers can actually play 18-rated games, Activision's own terms of service clear things up. The publisher states that you can play 18 rated games with the permission of a parent or guardian, but to sign up and create and actually create an account, it seems you must be at least 13.
Hopefully Rogan finds a solution that works for him. There are certainly hundreds of other online games out there that he is old enough to play, and I suspect he can probably kick ass at any of the games he turns his mind to. That's if he doesn't get access to Warzone again - but we'll have to wait and see.
