With the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II less than a month away, Activision continues to push ahead in its lawsuit against EngineOwning, a prolific Call of Duty cheat maker. Historically, the case was filed against the group in January 2022.

The lawsuit was filed to prevent “unlawful conduct” from EngineOwning, who were “distributing and selling for profit numerous malicious software products” that would give players “unfair competitive advantages.” The group had ultimately damaged “Activision’s games, its overall business, and the experience of the COD player community.”

Now, jumping forward nine months later, Activision’s lawsuit remains ongoing. An update to social media from CharlieIntel confirmed that the latest filings had identified the identities of the company owners. Activision further requested that EngineOwning cease operations and relinquish any monetary proceeds from the software to the studio. Similarly, in July 2021, the maker of a Warzone cheat that used machine learning was forced to shut down following a request from Activision. 

In October 2021, the Ricochet Anti-cheat system was launched by Activision in a bid to fight unfair play. In a blog post, the developers described the system as a “multi-faceted approach to combat cheating, featuring new server-side tools which monitor analytics to identify cheating, enhanced investigation processes to stamp out cheaters, updates to strengthen account security, and more.”

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II will launch across all major platforms, including the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net and Steam on October 28, 2022.

Players who pre-order the sequel as a digital copy will receive the single-player campaign and other modes a week earlier on October 20. For more on all things Call of Duty, stay tuned right here at GameLuster.

This is not an update. This is restating what is already known.

I hope this lawsuit falls apart and creates precedent that protects software makers and sKiddies. I hope it blows up in Activision’s face like Bungie’s did. Can’t stop the code.

I hope you end up getting prison style raped and forced to wear diapers for life from your arsehole being torn up. I hope you and your mum enjoy changing one anothers soiled bottoms on the regular.

Can’t stop the truth.
