Activision Blizzard has put another software vendor in its crosshairs as it seeks to stop the distribution of products that allow players in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to cheat. GatorCheats, creators of the cheat products, received a cease and desist order in May 2020 with a second volley mailed in September.
Here are the facts as outlined by Charlie INTEL:
- On receipt of the first C&D letter in May, the owner of GatorCheats decided to close sales of the CoD: MW and Warzone cheat software to all new customers. However, this would not stop existing customers from continuing to use the products.
- In September a second C&D letter was received by GatorCheats informing them that a lawsuit would be filed if they “didn’t comply with [the] continuation of stopped sales as well as a complete stoppage of interaction with and updating of any products related to their client’s products”.
- As a result of the second C&D letter, GatorCheats will not only be stopping sales of its cheat products but will stop all support of any relating to Activision Blizzard games.
- Further, the GatorCheats owner has written that the company “will hereby never create, test, or update products related to products owned by Activision Blizzard”.
- Lastly, the owner of GatorCheats is encouraging customers to stop using all of its products related to Activision Blizzard games and not to look for other cheats/hacks created by other vendors.
A quick look at the GatorCheats website reveals that the CoD: Modern Warfare cheats have been removed, though several other game cheats are still available.
