PUBG is a battle royale game that started a huge craze for the genre a few years ago. In the end, it gave the crown to other titles, and it lost popularity, but it’s PUBG that we owe to its battle royale fashion. Until now, this game was available in a buy-to-play form, but recently you can check it out for free. You can find more information on this topic here. Now, however, we will deal with the lawsuits of the creators of this title.
Krafton, because this company is responsible for PUBG, does not like the competition that has already proven itself in the past. They have now decided to file a lawsuit against Apple, Google and YouTube, as well as Garenie and two mobile games: Free Fire and Free Fire: Max. a reason? Copy Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.
As far as the case against the games is understandable, if they look overly like PUBG and are an obvious clone of it. However, suing Google, YouTube and Apple may seem strange. However, not in the eyes of Crafton, who believes the companies made money out of their misfortune. We learned from the lawsuit that the companies made money advertising and selling merchandise in these games, while ignoring Crafton’s demands to stop distributing them.
Interestingly, Crafton is not alone in such activities. In 2020, Ubisoft sued Google, Apple, and Ejoy over the Rainbow Six Siege mobile clone, and they won something. Would you do the same for PUBG? Time will tell.
