COD cheat provider threatens to release free software amid court case backlash

May 31, 2024 by No Comments

Earlier this week, EngineOwning was slammed with a $15 million payment order from a California court in a landmark cheating case against Activision Blizzard. For a long time, EngineOwning has been one of the most popular cheat providers in the gaming market, specializing in the Call of Duty space in general.

However, following the ruling, EngineOwning’s leadership team vowed to appeal the settlement order, with Activision making some threats against Blizzard, including releasing cheating software for free.

Getting worse

Activision Blizzard won in a California court when a judge ruled that AB was liable for $15 million (including legal fees) due to EngineOwning’s illegal conduct. Not only that, the court demanded that EngineOwning hand over its domain identity to Activision. This warranted an immediate backlash from EngineOwning, who said:

We hope and expect that our domain registrar will not defer to this bogus claim, which cannot be accepted by a clear judge with even basic democratic values ​​in a proper jurisdiction.

In an inflammatory response, EngineOwning has vowed to create new software to further circumvent Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone’s anti-cheat systems. The company promises to provide a free-to-use cheat system if AB continues down this path. In a report published by IGN, it was suggested that the owners of EngineOwning are prepared to keep the business flowing. Setting up a series of backup domains.

Call of Duty has had a problem with cheaters for years β€” and it’s only getting worse. As anti-cheating systems become more intelligent, so does the software developed by cheat providers.
