Ubisoft has filed a lawsuit against MizuSoft which, it claims, has been promoting cheat software program to Rainbow Six Siege players.
According to the lawsuit, MizuSoft has been promoting software program that gave Rainbow Six Siege players the capability to enhance their weapon harm, artificially expand their field of vision and see hidden enemies. According to Polygon, MizuSoft was charging up to $77 per month for licences for its cheat software program, which on its (now taken down) web page, it referred to as Price range Edition Rainbow Six: Siege Cheat, bragging on the defunct web page that it had a: “Clean detection record.”
Ubisoft’s lawsuit alleged that: “The Cheating Software program has been downloaded and utilised by R6S players thousands of instances. Ubisoft is also informed and believes that Defendants have produced hundreds of thousands of dollars from their distribution of, and sale of licenses to, the Cheating Software program.”
One particular catalyst behind the lawsuit seems to have been a BBC report on Rainbow Six Siege cheats, in which a Rainbow Six Siege cheat-hacker was mentioned to be pulling n roughly £1,500 per week and admitted he would have a “tough time” defending his conduct if Ubisoft sued him.
In July, Ubisoft announced a crackdown on an exploit that permitted Rainbow Six Siege players to induce lag in their opponents by abusing the game’s chat method. Its lawsuit against MizuSoft seeks restitution of: “Unlawful proceeds” and several other monetary damages, and has currently succeeded in halting the website’s operations.
