Valve – Dota 2 and Steam developer might sue Mobile Legends studio

[Source] Following the news about League of Legends developer Riot Games suing Shanghai Moontoon Technology, the developer of Mobile Legends, another potential lawsuit is coming the China studio’s way. According to reports, Vavle, the creator of Dota 2 and the Steam platform, might sue Moontoon Technology for copyright infringement by replicating the character, Mirana.

The character in question is called Irithel in Mobile Legends, which looks very similar to Mirana found in Dota 2. With Mobile Legends earning big money in Asia, it seems both Riot Games and Valve are making sure no company is making profits based on their ideas and designs. Valve has yet to pursue any lawsuit now, but players of Mobile Legends should be worried about the game’s future.
