MiHoYo sues Bilibili

For the Chinese development team, the activities of the leakers are becoming a real problem. After recent advances on Tohma’s future abilities in Genshin Impact, MiHoYo has decided to take legal action.

The aim is to hunt down the leakers responsible for disseminating confidential information through irregular channels. Specifically, we are talking about users who have taken part in Beta sessions and then breached the NDAs (Non-Disclosure Agreements) or who have made public information obtained through their contacts in the sector. On the other hand, dataminers are excluded from the viewfinder of MiHoYo, since they are “limited” to reading and interpreting information contained in the Genshin Impact game code.

At the moment, the software house has identified eleven major leakers, which carry out their activities on Bilibili, a well-known Chinese video platform. To have access to the personal data of the latter, however, MiHoYo was able to go only one way, that is to sue Bilibili herself, with whom it actually has an excellent relationship. Chinese law prevents the video portal from sharing users’ personal data in contexts other than those of a court. The first hearing already has a date, with MiHoYo’s war on leakers that will start on September 16th.

Meanwhile, Action RPG players can enjoy the many new features introduced to Teyvat by Genshin Impact Update 2.1.
