Area F2, the name sounds quite different than Rainbow Six Siege. Well, that is the only difference between the two games. The game was allowed to be downloaded on Google Play and Apple App Store. However, Ubisoft is suing Apple and Google to remove the game. According to them, it is very similar to their game, Rainbow Six Siege.
According to Bloomberg, Ubisoft has filed their complaint in LA on Friday. Ubisoft says that Area F2 is basically a R6 clone because nearly everything is copied from their game. For example, the operator selection screen and even the maps, is copied.
What did Apple and Google say?
Ubisoft stated that when they asked both companies to remove the game. The two companies did not give a positive response and refused to remove the Area F2. Both Google and Apple will have to answer for this. We will see how it goes. Apple and Google sued by Ubisoft? That is big news for the users.
According to Ubisoft, Rainbow Six Siege is not just a simple game to them. Ubisoft has always treated the game like their child. When the game was released, it did not have much but the company kept working on it. Now, it is one of the most popular games and has a huge fanbase.
Some people are asking that Ubisoft should also sue the developers of Area F2. However, even if they sue the devs and Alibaba or Ejoy, it would just be a waste of time and resources. This is because the companies are based in China. It is much easier to get Apple and Google to remove the game from their app stores, as stated by Engadget.
