Blizzard is seeking $8.5 million USD in damages from Overwatch hack-maker, Bossland. This news follows on from a lawsuit in July 2016, which saw the long-time developer sue the German hack-maker for copyright infringement.
That lawsuit accused Bossland of “creating, distributing, maintaining, and updating malicious software products” that players could use in multiplayer shooter Overwatch. They also claimed that the cheats were “continuing to cause massive and irreparable harm to Blizzard,” potentially causing others to stop playing.
It’s estimated that Bossland has sold 42,818 hacks for Blizzard-related products. Seeking $200 USD in damage per infringement, that puts the total at just over $8.5 million USD.
