Genshin Impact Publisher Is Getting Serious About Game Leaks as It Sues Discord to Identify a Popular Info Leaker


Genshin Impact publishers Cognosphere seem to be stepping up its game, in its bid to find the people responsible for the game’s leaks.

As one of the most popular titles on planet Earth, Genshin Impact has been subjected to a ton of leaks prior to the release of updates and several other additions. To prevent this from happening, Cognosphere looks to attack from the source itself by identifying the leakers associated with these revelations.

According to a report by Torrentfreak, the publishers have filed a DMCA subpoena in a California court against Discord. The claim requires the popular messaging platform to reveal the identity of one of Genshin Imapct’s most prominent leakers in Ubatcha.

For people unaware about the Genshin Impact leaks scene, Ubatcha is a popular insider with nearly half a million followers. The insider is known for leaking information about the game’s forthcomings, and this was mostly shared on the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor Discord server and the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit.

Trouble began for Ubatcha and other leakers in the community, when the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit received its first DMCA notice earlier this year. A while after that, Ubatcha and other leakers received DMCA notices from Discord over the contents being shared on the Wansheng Funeral Parlor server. Eventually, this led to the server shutting closing shop.

Prior to sending the subpoena application, Cognosphere had filed a DMCA takedown notice against Discord to remove the leaked Genshin Impact content being shared on its servers.

Judging by the looks of things, Discord will soon hand over details about Ubatcha, as per Cognosphere’s request, and it remains to be seen how the massively popular leaks community of Genshin Impact will react to these lawsuits.
