A Call of Duty Cheat distributor sued by Activision


Video game publisher Activision filed a lawsuit this week against EngineOwning, which is a platform that distributes cheats and other hacks for various Call of Duty games. In recent months, Activision and its various studios have made a bigger attempt to ban cheaters who might play titles such as Call of Duty: War Zone and Call of Duty: The Vanguard to improve everyone’s experience. And while this lawsuit has gone pretty well so far, Activision now appears to be taking this issue at its root.

This trial, which was filed by Activision on Jan. 4, claims that EngineOwning’s “development, sale, distribution, marketing, and operation” of these various Call of Duty tricks violates all of the company’s rights in as the publisher of the franchise. Activision goes on to state that headlines dating back to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 have been affected by these cheaters over time. In addition, it also mentions Monitoring in the trial preview, claiming that EngineOwning is also reportedly developing new cheat software for the popular hero shooter.

“Through this lawsuit, Activision seeks to put an end to the illegal behavior of an organization that distributes and sells for profit numerous malware products designed to allow members of the public to gain unfair competitive advantages (i.e. – say cheating) in COD games. “Activision said in details of the lawsuit document. “These ongoing activities are detrimental to Activision’s games, its overall business and the experience of the COD gaming community. […] COD games are designed to be enjoyed and fair by all gamers. When players use exploits like cheating software, such behavior upsets the balance of the game and in many cases results in non-cheating players leaving matches in frustration.

At this point, it remains to be seen what will happen in this long-term situation. Since this lawsuit has only just been filed, we likely won’t be hearing about its status for quite a while. However, this decision shows that Activision is definitely looking to take this explosion of cheating in its various Call of Duty games very seriously.

Do you think this lawsuit will eventually be won by Activision? And more, do you think it will actually help keep cheaters out of a lot of different Call of Duty games? Let me know in the comments or message me on Twitter at @ Mooreman12.
