An Activision lawsuit is demanding that all the money made from Call of Duty and Warzone cheats by website EngineOwning must be paid as “restitution” to the publisher of FPS Modern Warfare 2, as well as RPGs Diablo and World of Warcraft, which is also claiming other damages and seeks for the cheating site being shut down.

Activision originally filed its lawsuit against EngineOwning in January, seeking $2,500 USD in damages for each instance of EngineOwning contravening Activision’s terms of service, and accusing the German website of “trafficking in circumvention devices” and causing “intentional interference with contractual relations” between Activision and players of its games.

As well as Call of Duty, EngineOwning also manufactures cheats for Overwatch, and is reportedly planning to launch cheats for the upcoming Modern Warfare 2.

In an updated version of the lawsuit, as well as “awarding Activision actual or maximum statutory damages” alongside “exemplary and punitive damages…on Activision’s cause of action for intentional interference with contractual relations”, the publisher is now demanding that EngineOwning forfeit the money it has made by selling cheats to Activision itself.
