PUBG’s maker sued Apple and Google!

Krafton, the maker of the PUBG game, has sued Apple and Google for selling Free Fire, a fake of their own game.

PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) is among the most played Battle Royale games worldwide. The popularity of the game is increasing day by day, and this causes the fakes of the game to appear.

When we look at the application markets at the moment, we see that many PUBG-like games are on the market. PUBG’s developer Krafton , who now wants to put a stop to this situation, took action for fake games and sued fake game manufacturers and application markets.

Krafton sued fake game makers and app markets!

According to Reuters, Krafton, the developer of the famous Battle Royale game PUBG, filed a criminal complaint with the Los Angeles Federal Court on Monday. The complaint alleged that the game named “ Free Fire ” developed by Garena Online copied various copyrighted in-game items, maps and equipment of PUBG.

Krafton said in his statement that Apple and Google distributed 100 million copies of their games. In addition, Garena said that the game company made more than $ 100 million in revenue from the fake game Free Fire in the first three months of 2021 in the USA . In addition, Apple is asked to remove the game Free Fire Max , which is in another violation .

The developer of PUBG asked Google, Apple and Garena to give them the profits from the Free Fire sale. It was also requested that the sale of the Free Fire game be completely banned . This case is actually not the first. In 2018, Krafton sued another rival world-famous Battle Royale game, Fornite, to protect its copyrights.

Apple did not take any steps after this situation and the Free Fire game is still on sale. Despite this behavior, Apple had recently removed the fake versions of the Wordle game from the application market. So, what are your thoughts? Do you think Free Fire game should be removed from app markets? Do not forget to leave your comments and opinions below.
