Activision has been sued by vehicle manufacturer AM General over the claimed misuse of its Humvee trademarks in Call of Duty.
As reported by Jalopnik last week, AM General believes the publisher’s improper use of the Humvee and HMMWV trademarks throughout the Call of Duty franchise, and is why it has become one of the largest console game series ever.
Both Activision Blizzard and Activision Publishing are named in the complaint document, while its esports company Major League Gaming is also down as a defendant.
It has been reported that the Call of Duty franchise has sold over 250 million games over its life span, with over $15 million being made from game sales, DLC and microtransactions.
The complaint comes close to the release of the latest game in the series, Call of Duty: WWII. Activision has said that the game has recorded over $500 million in sales during the first few days of the game, with it being the most success Call of Duty game in the last few years.
