In the pursuit of tackling cheat codes against its popular game, Activision issued a lawsuit against cheat code provider of Call of Duty Games.
EngineOwning, the platform which Activision is accusing, has been knowingly distributing cheat tools for automatic aiming, tracking opponents, etc, which can give illegitimate players an unfair advantage over others.
Taking Down EngineOwning
Though video games are one of the best forms of home entertainment, they’re often plagued by cheat tools that spoil the experience of legitimate players. So, it’s the job of the game publishers to look upon and takedown such tools. And Activision is just doing that by targeting EngineOwning.
On Tuesday, Activision’s Publishing wing has filed a lawsuit against EngineOwning, a platform that offers cheat tools for several online games, including the Call of Duty Games. As this turns out frustrating to Activision and its legitimate gamers, the publisher is now suing EngineOwning.
As per its lawsuit, Activision stated that the platform (EngineOwning) provides COD cheat tools for automatic aiming, tracing the opponents’ location, and other sensitive information that may not be available generally for legitimate players. Thus, Activision is now seeking the court to cease EngineOwning’s operators, and shutdown altogether for good.
The game publisher mentioned 50 “Does” in its lawsuit, belonging to EngineOwning in most means. Although Activision Publishing said it knew some of the original identities in those 50 “Does”, it decided not to mention them as don’t know the “the true names and capacities, whether individual, corporate, associate or otherwise, of the Doe defendants“.
The COD game publisher has been taking serious steps to cut cheating in their games, where it made a special focus on Call of Duty: Warzone lately. It introduced a new Ricochet anti-cheat system in December and soon banned about 48,000 cheater accounts in a span of days.
