    I'm a bit surprised they actually shut it down, rather than resorting to APK files. I'm not sure if Google and Apple made them take the game down (since there are so many other shameless rip offs).

    COD Mobile pretty much killed all of the other free to play FPS games anyway.

    If they're actually taking it down to remake it, maybe they should keep the destructible environments and make it something more like a deathmatch FPS, or have something more like Demolition or whatever the bomb mode is in Call of Duty but without using drones to find the bomb and no fortifying windows and doors with planks. Or do the one life thing similarly to CS:GO where it's a much more generic military shooter, and not a 5v5 hero shooter with drones and destructible environments and boarding off doors and windows.

    Rainbow Six always has one of the most toxic communities I've seen but I'm glad Ubisoft is doing this. It's time to stop these copy-pastes, and it's not the first time... but then again, Ubisoft is not innocent.

    Ubisoft dropped the lawsuit against Apple & Google following Area F2's termination. The original post has been updated accordingly.

    There's a difference between "I don't like this product" and "this product should not legally be allowed to be exist". The only reason it's done through Google and Apple is because suing a Chinese company is practically impossible.

    What logic is that? Ubisoft is a company that was established in France (as pointed in the thread). Did you even read?
    If they want to sue something directly, they have either to use France's law or China's law (obviously Im not a lawyer, so what Im saying very possible be completely wrong)

    Anyway, this is one of the more blatant rip-offs in Google Play/Apple Store, but Im still baffled in how the hell people play FPS with goddamn touchscreen. Its the most cancerous thing ever. I would rather actually die than being tied up and forced to play a FPS game on a touchscreen device

    Well I'll be damned, I was wrong. I guess it makes sense they no longer have any basis for suing Apple and Google without the app remaining on their respective storefronts. Yet another Chinese IP thief gets away basically scot-free. :glare:

    Wait wait wait. Doesn't Ubisoft own Gameloft, the mobile game developer that makes rip-offs of all your favorite console games? God of War had Hero of Sparta, Burnout has Asphalt, Halo has NOVA, Modern Warfare has Modern Combat, etc. They've got some nerve suing over someone else's derivative work.

    Right, all games are derivative of games from 40 years ago. They should all be banned and we should go back to single color games.

    Ok then


    I wouldnt say those games you said are rip-offs. They are different enough. More like popularity wagon rider
    This case is different. UI, HUD and maps are direct copypaste from R6Siege. The characters are slightly different (they have different looking tools but they basically function the same as in R6Siege)
