Don’t worry, as soon as you read this news everything will be clearer to you. And yes, they have to do with it Call of Duty: Infinite Warfarea judge and a lawyer, all protagonists of a legal dispute.
A judge found it irritating that a lawyer did not play enough of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the most hated chapter in the history of the franchise, as part of a lawsuit involving Activision and other companies.
In particular, the developers of Brooks Entertainment whose lawyer was scorned by the judge.
Of course, embarrassment isn’t the only thing that could have been avoided, as there’s no doubt Brooks Entertainment spent a lot of time and money when it decided to sue Activision in 2021.
The reason for this lawsuit, reports the site JD Suprais to be found in Infinite Warfare, the chapter launched in 2016 and the latest exponent of the futuristic line of COD after Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3.
In the single player campaign of Infinite Warfare, a character named appeared Sean Brooks, targeted by the rival studio. Brooks Entertainment claimed that Activision had stolen the identity of their owner character, Shon Brooks, as well as denouncing other similarities – the missions, the futuristic and sci-fi setting, even a battle inside a shopping mall, which also happens in Infinite. Warfare.
Activision initially explained that many of the claims about the similarity between the two characters had been misrepresented, asking Brooks Entertainment to remove the request. The firm did not agree and the lawsuit ended up in court, with a landslide victory from Activision and a lousy figure from the prosecution’s attorney.
On 12 July 2022, during the final stages of the dispute, the judge totally agreed with Activision and rejected the case, but not only. Brooks Entertainment was ordered to reimburse Activision’s legal fees, but the judge decided to give the firm’s lawyer a final jab as well.
The judgeto better understand what we were talking about, he in fact played Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and decided to explain to the prosecuting lawyer that the groundlessness of Brooks’s accusations could be proved after a few minutes of play:
The lawyer could easily have verified these facts before filing the factual groundless complaint, just as the court easily verified them within the first hour and a half of the game.
In short words, the judge scolded Brooks’ attorney for not playing COD Infinite Warfarewhich would have avoided litigation that turned out to be useless.
Speaking of Infinite Warfare, do you remember how to complete the Zombies easter egg in Spaceland? Despite the good built mode, Lee Ross recalled a couple of years ago all the threats received for Infinite Warfare Zombies, a shameful act on the part of a slice of the community.
