Activision files a lawsuit against EngineOwning, a website that offers cheats for Call of Duty and Overwatch.
Call of Duty: one of the sites that provided cheats to players in trouble
Game Over per EngineOwning, website accused of providing cheats to players of Call of Duty. The site, according to the indictment, would allow players to obtain completely unfair advantages, such as spotting players through walls, obtaining information on the positions of opponents and practically infallible aiming assistants. In short, illegal content that would distort the games and that, economically, would damage Activision, owner of the COD franchise. Not only that: the site would also provide cheats for Overwatch, a title owned by Blizzard, affiliated with Activision.
Apparently, however, the software house has decided to say enough, filing a legal case against the portal. The official reasons were: “intentional interference in contractual relationships”, “unfair competition” and claiming damages for ruining “Activision games, its business and the experience of the COD player community.”
Furthermore, Activision claimed that the release of cheats and bots caused “enormous and irreparable damage, not only financially, but in terms of the reputation of the brand”. After all, in the month of December alone, the COD team has banned for cheat 48,000 users, between Warzone and Vanguard.
