Genshin Impact Takes Legal Action Against Twitter Leaks With Subpoena

Cognoshere, the publisher of Genshin Impact, has subpoenaed Twitter as part of its ongoing legal action against several leakers. The publisher previously used Discord to target specific, well-known leakers in significant Genshin Impact Discord channels, with Ubatcha being the greatest target. This time, Cognosphere is prosecuting Xwides, Merlin Impact, and GenshinWorld—other eminent leakers in the community of the anime game.

Cognosphere appears to have had California court issue a subpoena to Twitter, ordering them to provide the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and any email addresses connected to the three leakers.

All three individuals responded differently to the legal move. Xwides is a Russian leaker with over 93,000 followers on Twitter, and they seem somewhat unphased by this news, as they’ve just leaked even more of Genshin Impact’s future content within the last 24 hours.

This response is notably different than Ubatcha’s. When facing a similar situation, Ubatcha deleted a large number of tweets, and put out a statement saying they wouldn’t be leaking any more Genshin Impact content.

GenshinWorld followed Ubatcha’s example and completely wiped their own Twitter page. Meanwhile, Merlin Impact put out a recent tweet saying they’d just move to another platform if Cognosphere got their Twitter account banned.

Stephen Totilo, former editor-in-chief of Kotaku, shared the news of this most recent subpoena on Twitter just yesterday. He posted an image of an alleged legal document pertaining to Xwides, which may be the same format for the other two.

Genshin Impact will soon be entering its 4.0 versions with large map expansions that add the city of Fontaine, a new Archon, plenty of characters, and possibly even a third banner phase. So, it should come as no surprise that Cognosphere is cracking down on leakers as we get ready for the Genshin Impact version 3.5 update.
