Krafton is suing Google, YouTube and Apple for alleged PUBG clones

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds studio Krafton has sued Apple, Google, YouTube and free-to-play gaming company Garena over two mobile games, Free Fire (originally called Free Fire: Battlegrounds) and Free Fire: Max, as it says “detailed” copies several aspects “of the groundbreaking Battle Royale game.

Garena began selling Free Fire in Singapore in 2017, shortly after the launch of PUBG, according to the lawsuit (via The Verge). It apparently led to a complaint and a settlement, but that settlement did not include any license agreement or permission to distribute the game. Despite that, a mobile version of the game appeared on the App Store and Google Play the same year, followed by Free Fire Max in 2018.
