Both Apple and Google have been sued by a game developer who goes by the name Ubisoft for not removing its game Area F2from their respective App Stores.
According to sources, the game developer Ubisoft has allegedly claimed that both Google and Apple have been selling the game are F2 that is a near carbon copy of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Seige.
Apple and Google had been given ultimatums by Ubisoft stating copyright infringement of the game but still did not blink an eye and refused to take the game down its online stores.
A Chinese company named Alibaba Digitals Company Ejoy has been the brains behind the development of the game Area F2 and the game has been listed on both Apple and Google stores under Qookka Games.
While filing a lawsuits complaint against the two tech giants Apple and Google, Ubisoft stated, “Area F2 created by Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd Ejoy.com is a near carbon copy of Rainbow Six: Seige and that cant seriously be disputed.”
The complaint filed against Apple and Google by Ubisoft also proclaimed that Rainbow Six: Seige is one of the most popular competitive multiplayer games around the globe and ranks among one of the most prestigious assets of the developer.
Ubisoft further delineated,” Virtually every aspect of Area F2 is copied from Rainbow Six: Siege, from the operator selection screen to the final scoring screen, and everything in between.”
The game developer Ubisoft has allegedly claimed that the game has 55 million registered players around the world with more than 3 million players regularly.
The surprising element here is that Ubisoft has booked Apple and Google for selling the game Area F2 but has not done anything to Alibaba’s Qookka Games for the initial copyright violation.
