The company that manufactures the Hummer claims they never signed off on their vehicle being featured in the “Call of Duty” franchise, and now they’ve declared war.
AM General — who manufactures both the civilian Hummer and military Humvee — filed documents against Activision Blizzard claiming COD has been successful at the “Expense of AM General and consumers who are deceived into believing that AM General licenses the games or is somehow connected with or involved in the creation of the games.”
They claim Activision has “reaped billions of dollars in revenues from their wrongful acts and, in the process, have irreparably harmed AM General.”
The vehicle has been prominently used throughout the video game franchise, and AM General provided multiple examples of how they feel they’re being ripped off.
AM General wants an injunction against Activision Blizzard, and for the company to “Engage in corrective advertising.”
They also want a tactical nuke sized payday in damages.
