Trek Industries’ Orion pulled from Steam Over Stolen Assets
29 June, 2016
News

Trek Industries’ Orion has been pulled from Steam because the developers have used certain assets from Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

David Prassel of Trek Industries posted an update stating that Orion (aka The Orion Project) was pulled from sale after a copyright claim.

That’s what the takedown request states:

…on behalf of Activision, who alleges that the game Orion uses weapon art content from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The weapon art in question includes the M8A7 rifle, the Haymaker rifle, and the Bal-27 rifle.

Prassel also states that the game’s takedown has led to “monumental damages to both revenue and brand to Trek Industries by wrongly slandering and defaming us by accusing us to be thieves.”

He calls the claim “erroneous” and says the developer is not aware which Orion guns are allegedly using weapon art content from those two Call of Duty games.”
