Earlier this week, a jury in California, United States, ordered EngineOwning to pay $15 million to Activision. The company, a developer of hackers and cheats for online games, is one of the most popular and prominent in the gaming niche. Call of Duty in the last years.

EngineOwning’s reaction to the conviction was, to say the least, curious. After the election, the team responsible for the company made some threats to Activision, even promising to make cheats available Call of Duty free for players.

In addition to the $15 million fine, the Californian court also required EngineOwning to hand over its domain identity to Activision. This ended up generating an almost immediate reaction from the company, which promised to create new software to further bypass the anti-cheat system. Modern Warfare 3 e Warzone.

“We hope and think that our domain registrar will not give in to this false claim, which would not have been approved by any lucid judge, even with basic democratic values, in a proper jurisdiction,” EngineOwning said in a statement.

If things don’t go as expected and the process continues down this path, the company has committed to offering a free cheat system for players.

According to a report published by IGNit appears that the owners of EngineOwning are also preparing to keep business flowing by creating a series of backup domains.

As a result, Phoenix Digital Group and all individual defendants in the case were ordered to pay damages of US$63,210 to Bungie for the actual profits they made from selling the cheats to Destiny 2.

The value, of course, is much lower compared to the US$ 15 million charged by Activision. However, it appears that the scale of EngineOwning’s business is much larger — as Call of Duty is one of the most played shooting games today.
