US video games publishing giant Electronic Arts is being sued in Canada.
That's according to Business in Vancouver's Who's Getting Sued section – as spotted by ThePatchNotes.com – which says that a class action lawsuit has been filed against EA in the country over its implementation of loot boxes in its popular FIFA football series, as well as its Madden NFL, NHL, NBA Live, UFC, Plants vs Zombies, Mass Effect, Need for Speed series, Apex Legends and a range of mobile titles. The suit was filed with the court on September 30th.
The class – represented by lawyers Mark Sutherland and Shawn Moore – is claiming that EA is operating an unlicensed gambling business by offering loot boxes in its games. The suit also takes issue with the fact that the publisher doesn't release the odds of winning prizes in titles like FIFA.
This isn't the only class action that EA is facing. In August, a suit was filed in California over the loot boxes in FIFA Ultimate team.
