Last yr, Bungie filed a lawsuit towards alleged Destiny 2 cheat maker AimJunkies claiming copyright infringement. Then, earlier this yr, a choose dismissed most of that case, forcing Bungie to refile its lawsuit. Now, AimJunkies is combating again, claiming in a press launch that the previous Halo dev is mistaken in its claims that AimJunkies’ software program brought on any hurt. What’s extra, the corporate means that Bungie is throwing “shit” at “the wall” in courtroom in an effort to see what sticks.
As reported by TorrentFreak, AimJunkies is firing again at Bungie by way of press launch following its earlier victory in courtroom towards the studio behind Destiny. That victory occurred again in April of this yr, when a federal choose dismissed most of Bungie’s lawsuit towards the cheat maker, siding with AimJunkies and recommending the 2 events use arbitration for a lot of the claims made within the lawsuit as specified by Bungie’s personal License Agreement. However, the courtroom did give Bungie an opportunity to refile its lawsuit, and it did simply that in May.
Earlier this week, in a press launch TorrentFreak obtained from AimJunkies in addition to in courtroom docs, the cheat maker confirmed it’s engaged on filling subpoenas towards Valve, PayPal, and Bungie in an effort to assemble proof to disprove Bungie’s claims that the dishonest software program brought on Destiny 2 “grievous harm.” AimJunkies says that, the truth is, throughout the time when its dishonest software program was accessible, Destiny 2 allegedly had a few of its hottest months primarily based on gross sales and participant numbers.
In the odd and aggressive press launch, AimJunkies claims that folks shouldn’t consider “90%” of what’s included in Bungie’s courtroom filings, including that “Bungie and their counsel apparently believe the more [shit] you throw at the wall the greater the possibility of something sticking with the court, no matter how ridiculous or absurd it is in the real world.”
The press launch ends with AimJunkies suggesting that Bungie’s habits is why Activision bought the corporate, and stating that it hopes the “wiser minds” at Bungie’s new proprietor, Sony, will assist transferring ahead. (Activision by no means owned Bungie.)
Kotaku has contacted Bungie about this press launch and the continued authorized battle with AimJunkies.
Bungie has spent the previous couple of years taking over cheat makers and others in courtroom by way of lawsuits. And whereas it has had some victories, even shutting down some websites and cheat makers up to now, AimJunkies has been in a position to combat again in courtroom, resulting in some disappointing outcomes for Bungie. This newest press launch appears to sign that this authorized battle isn’t going to be wrapping up anytime quickly.
