Activision doubles its approach to surprised players typing online. The big video game publisher specifically targets players who use software like that distributed by Engine owning in recent months. They banned the players of Call of Duty: War zone and Call of Duty: Vanguard. But now, Activision has apparently turned his attention to one of the companies allowing these cheats.
Engine owning is a platform that distributes tips and hacks for different multiplayer games since 2014. However, the company could soon pay for the price to offer these benefits to Call of Duty players through the activism intervention.
Activision filed a complaint yesterday, stating that the development and sale by Engine owning of these various changes and tricks directly violate the company's publisher rights. The company also provides a long history, going back to Modern Warfare 3. It details the different tips and hacks produced by Engine owning.
Activision requires that the company immediately put an end to the illegal behavior in its games. They ask the Tribunal to prevent the sale of malicious software products designed to allow members of the public to obtain unfair competitive advantages.
In addition, the trial goes further than the Call of Duty games. Activision also mentions a possible Overwatch hacking on which Engine owning works, which has been sequined in a tweeter not later than yesterday.
This is not the first interaction of the company with cheating distributors. Activision also managed to close cheating manufacturers in the past. But what will happen exactly about this trial remains to be seen. However, it is clear that activation doubles the targeting of cheating software and those that use them.
What do you think it means to Call of Duty in the future?
