Another Call of Duty fan project bites the dust.
Activision has taken action against X Labs, the team behind the popular Modern Warfare 2 modded project called “IW4X.” They announced operations have closed permanently after receiving a cease and desist demand from the company behind the shooter franchise.
Today, we have received a Cease & Desist letter on behalf of Activision Publishing in relation to the X Labs project. We are complying with this order and shutting down all operations permanently. Thank you all for your support over the years.

X Labs had been running dedicated servers for modded versions of older Call of Duty games for years without legal obstruction. The project was seen as a harmless fan endeavor that enhanced the Call of Duty community, but it is worth noting the team was accepting money from folks via Patreon.
