Some good non cheaters and bad news for cheaters on Call of Duty
Activision just filed a lawsuit against the biggest cheat distribution EngineOwning and they want $2500 for each broken rule + all income they made by selling cheats to players.
How many players used cheats from EngineOwning?
We expect a few million players used the cheats from EngineOwning and their revenue is a few hundred million dollars (is monthly paid subscription)
Who is EngineOwning?
EngineOwning is owned by a German individual alongside other locations.
Activision did their best in December to release a new anti-cheat “RICOCHET Anti-Cheat software” and this including PC kernel-level driver for Warzone
About the lawsuit, is still not clear what the owner of EngineOwning is planning to do now.
Activision is asking:
Court must put a stop to Defendants misconduct, and Activision is entitled to monetary damages, injunctive and other equitable relief, and punitive damages against Defendants
With this possible will be fewer hackers for a period of time on Call of Duty but this is just a medium size of them.
We will keep updated about this issue when we will get new updates.
ALSO, Activision said EngineOwning they are trying to create cheats now for Overwatch and they are asking the court to make them “stop” damaging the owned IP any further.
