If you haven’t heard already, Activision/Blizzard recently fired over 750 employees (around 8 percent) of their workforce yesterday. This comes months after Bungie announced they would be parting ways with the video game juggernaut. Now we received news that the popular wrestler and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T is suing Activision for copyright infringement over a character in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 that looks a lot like a comic book character he created called G.I. Bro.

Looking at the side by side screenshots in the above tweet, the character looks like a copy/paste job. Booker T started G.I. Bro in 2015, and Black Ops 4 dropped in 2018, so Booker T might have a case here. Even though I have my personal opinions on Activision, I wish them the best with everything that’s going on right now. We will keep you up to date on what happens with this particular case.
