Activision wanted to learn the identity of the user who shared information about the battle royale mode that will come to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. For this, he called Reddit, the platform on which the sharing was made, to the court.
As you know, Activision released the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game which was highly anticipated until August 2019. As the Modern Warfare series is a popular series, the game, which caused high expectations, managed to collect positive reviews as it turned out.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been receiving constant updates every day since it offers new content to players. Of course, there were many game modes in these updates. But today’s popular game mode, Battle Royale, has yet to show itself in this game.
Activision sued to reveal the identity of a Reddit user:
Although Battle Royale has not yet arrived in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, this mode is expected to come with the next update. In addition, many details about this game mode, which is expected to be called ‘Warzone’, continue to appear day by day.
But this time we will talk about the person and Activision who shared this detail, not the resulting detail. Activision went to court to reveal the identity of the person who shared an image about the new game modes on Reddit, the Hollywood Reporter reported. The company called Reddit to court to help out on this path.
According to the news, Activision applies to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act law to reveal the identity of the Reddit user who violates the Activision content. The Reddit post, which is currently unavailable to the shared image, seems to reveal important information about the Warzone game mode that will come to Modern Warfare.
Those who follow us will know that this image shared by Reddit user was not the only leak shared about Modern Warfare’s Warzone game mode. The map of the game mode has been shared several times in the past days, and even a Reddit user has taken videos from this map.
On the other hand, Activision is not the only company to take legal action against such events. Last November, Epic was charged with a UX tester for revealing some details about Fortnite Chapter 2. A month later, he opened another lawsuit for the same person for the same reason.
