Ubisoft Sues Apple, Google Over Rainbow Six “Ripoff”

Published

Ubisoft is taking the battle to the legal system, filing a lawsuit against Apple Inc. and Google LLC alleging that the companies are selling a ripoff of the Ubisoft hit video game Rainbow Six Siege, according to Bloomberg’s Edvard Pettersson.

Ubisoft filed the lawsuit on May 15th in Los Angeles, California saying that Area F2 is a “near carbon copy” of Rainbow Six, stating that despite notifying both Apple and Google that the mobile game Area F2 is infringing upon the copyright of its game, the companies have refused to remove the game from their respective digital marketplaces.

Per the report, Ubisoft insists that the similarities are so great they cannot “seriously be disputed” and “Ubisoft’s competitors are constantly looking for ways to piggyback on R6S’s popularity and to capture the attention, and money, of R6S players”.

“R6S is among the most popular competitive multiplayer games in the world, and is among Ubisoft’s most valuable intellectual properties, Ubisoft said. “Virtually every aspect of AF2 is copied from R6S, from the operator selection screen to the final scoring screen, and everything in between.”

According to the official rundown of Area F2: “the first Close-Quarters Battle shooting game on mobile” and enables players to fight “over ultra-realistic environments as attacker and defender, playing as one of a wide selection of agents, each with [their own] special ability”.
