PUBG’s Crafton sues ‘Free Fire’ maker Garena and Apple-Google


Krafton, the developer of the PUBG game, has filed a lawsuit against Garena, Apple and Google. Crafton has alleged that Garena imitated PUBG: Battlegrounds in the battle royale games ‘Free Fire’ and ‘Free Fire Max’. Crafton has also accused Google of hosting videos on YouTube that show the gameplay of Garena’s Free Fire and Free Fire Max. According to a complaint shared by The Verge, Crafton has filed a lawsuit against Garena, the developer of the Free Fire and Free Fire Max games.

Crafton has accused Garena of copying his popular battle royale title. Crafton has said that Garena has made “hundreds of millions of dollars” from sales from two games. Apple and Google have also made good money by distributing these games. Both the apps are still listed on Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store.

Crafton claims that it took action against Free Fire and Free Fire Max on December 21. First, Garena was told to stop Free Fire and Free Fire Max. Garena refused to do so. Crafton also asked Apple and Google not to distribute both games on their platforms. But both these games are still listed on the App Store.

YouTube was also asked to remove several videos from its platform. These videos are also currently available on YouTube.

The lawsuit also mentions that Garena sold a game in Singapore in 2017. It is said to have copied PUBG: Battlegrounds. Crafton noted that there was no licensing agreement between the two gaming developers while the claims were settled.

According to data from Sensor Tower shared with The Verge, Free Fire earned $1.1 billion (about Rs 8,153 crore) from player spending in 2021, a 48% year-on-year increase. Crafton earned $2.98 billion (about Rs 22,087 crore) during the same period, a year-on-year increase of just 7 percent. It was told in this data that the Free Fire game was approaching PUBG in terms of popularity and earnings.
