Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla developer, Ubisoft is suing Apple and Google over an alleged mobile Rainbow Six Siege clone that was released for Android and iOS. That game is called “Area F2”, created by Alibaba’s Ejoy.com, and you can go check out it’s Google Play Store listing here. A Bloomber report digs into the details regarding the lawsuit, in which Ubisoft claims that Area F2 copies Rainbow Six Siege in “virtually every aspect,” noting that the final scoring screen and the operator section screen as being particularly derivative. Below, you can see a comparison between Rainbow Six Siege and Area F2:
Area F2 already has over millions of downloads so far and gave itself the title of the “first CQB FPS on mobile,” offering a variety of equipment, agents, and destructible environments. According to reports, Ubisoft has contacted Apple and Google about the game and its copyright infringement, but both tech giants have failed to remove the game from their respective stores.
