Ubisoft sues Apple, Google over R6 Siege clone, Area F2

The resemblance is uncanny.

Ubisoft has sued Apple and Google over a Rainbow Six Siege clone called Area F2.

Area F2 was developed by Alibaba Group’s Ejoy.com and has been called a “near carbon copy” of Siege that “can’t seriously be disputed,” Ubisoft said in a complained filed last week (via Bloomberg).

R6S is among the most popular competitive multiplayer games in the world, and is among Ubisoft’s most valuable intellectual properties,” Ubisoft continued. “Virtually every aspect of AF2 is copied from R6S, from the operator selection screen to the final scoring screen, and everything in between.”

Both Apple and Google have refused to remove Area F2 from their respective App Stores at present. You can take a look at Area F2 on Google Play here. From what we see, Ubisoft’s spot on.

Area F2 is available on iOS and Android, while Rainbow Six Siege is on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. We previewed Siege’Operation Steel Wave earlier today.
