Last week Blizzard found itself in the crosshairs of a new class action lawsuit over security practices making allegations against the publisher such as fraud, unjust enrichment, negligence, breach of contract and bailment. This week Blizzard has responded to the lawsuit in a statement to Game Informer calling the suit Âwithout merit and filled with patently false informationÂ and vowed to defend against the accusations in the proper legal channels.
The statement also took some time to address concerns about security and BlizzardÂs reaction to the August hacking of Battle.net, pointing to the official announcement of the breach and FAQ for more details.
ÂThe suitÂs claim that we didnÂt properly notify players regarding the August 2012 security breach is not true. Not only did Blizzard act quickly to provide information to the public about the situation, we explained the actions we were taking and let players know how the incident affected them, including the fact that no names, credit card numbers, or other sensitive financial information was disclosed.Â
