Cheaters are indeed a persistent problem in online multiplayer games, especially PCs. This is because they further spoil the experience of playing other players by cheating through software created by hackers.
Not infrequently, these hackers sell them for a certain price, even the equivalent of the games being sold.
Stopping cheaters will not be done if you only get permanently banned. This is because they will not give up to keep repeating the same actions. Therefore, many publishers have started prosecution via the realm of law, one of which is Activision.
After previously they sued CxCheats for copyright infringement against Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Warzone. CxCheats agreed to these demands and stopped all its activities. This time they again sued a manufacturer called GatorCheats.
According to the Charlieintel report, Activision has carried out these demands since May 2020 yesterday. Unfortunately, the owner failed to answer. This made them file a second suit via the detective they hired to come directly to the house of the GatorCheats owner.
This prompted GatorCheats to immediately send an open letter via its Discord server claiming they would no longer make and sell Call of Duty cheats and Activision Blizzard’s games in the future. Attorneys for Activision Blizzard confirmed that they would file lawsuits if the defendants failed to comply with their demands.
The owner of GatorCheats who is the only person responsible for his family admits that he will comply with their demands and will not create or distribute the cheat. He also advised his customers not to look for similar software in the future.
As of this writing, Activision did not want to comment on the case. However, it seems that their demands have had a tremendous impact on the Call of Duty cheat maker.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare can now be played on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game has a crossplay system that allows you to play it on the same server from different platforms.
