Krafton’s Complaint- rajkotupdates.News : Pubg Developer Krafton has Filed a Lawsuit Against Garena Free Fire.
Krafton says that Garena stole parts of PUBG: Battlegrounds in a game that came out in Singapore in 2017. Even though the claims were settled, Krafton says that the two companies did not agree on a license deal.
The Verge said that data from Sensor Tower showed that players spent $1.1 billion on Free Fire in 2021, which was a 48% increase from the year before. During the same time period, Krafton made $2.98 billion, which is 7% more than the same time last year. The data was also supported by Appfigures, which showed that Free Fire is becoming more famous and making more money, closing the gap with PUBG.
A representative for Sea, the business that owns Garena, said that Krafton's charges are "groundless." The result of the case is still unknown, which makes people wonder what will happen to the games and whether they will still be available on Apple's App Store, Google Play, and YouTube.
Did Krafton Win the Case Against Garena?
In its case, the developer said that in 2017 it made a deal with Garena about putting out a game like PUBG in Singapore. Krafton made it clear that this settlement did not include a license agreement and did not give Garena permission to sell its games in the United States. The case between Krafton and Garena has stirred up a lot of debate.
The fact that PUBG maker Krafton is still suing Garena, Apple, and Google shows how tense the battle royale game market is getting. With Free Fire and Free Fire Max, Garena is accused by Krafton of stealing its intellectual property. Apple and Google are accused of selling and making money off of these games.
The result of the lawsuit could change how battle royale games are made in the future and how app stores and sites like YouTube handle material that might be illegal. As the court fight goes on, the gaming industry is waiting to hear how Krafton's claims will be handled and what effect that could have on the industry.
