As first reported by TorrentFreak and confirmed in official court documents, Elite Boss Tech has agreed to pay Bungie $13.5 MILLION in damages after being accused of developing cheats for Destiny 2 earlier this year.
Let’s have a live look in on the EBT offices really quick:
EBT had to know that Bungie would be coming for their asses eventually, and especially now that they’ve got Sony to potentially help bankroll any legal proceedings to defend the sanctity of their game… Well… The writing’s been on the wall for a while here.
Elite Boss Tech actually initially refuted the claims that they had done anything wrong, but just like Riot Games, Activision, and PUBG Mobile before them – Bungie was not taking any chances and eventually brought the hammer down. The $13.5 million penalty was reached based on the initial fine for breaking these kinds of laws ($2000), with every single download of EBT’s software counting as a separate offense. 6,765 of them, to be exact.
Bungie insisted that stuff like this was costing them “exorbitant” amounts of money, and that the integrity of Destiny 2 needs to be maintained so that cheaters cannot prosper or continue to grow.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
