Call of Duty Cheat Vendor Apologizes (and Closes?) After Lawsuit

A post on Reddit captures a Discord message from CxCheats after the cheat vendor was sued by Activision for offering Call of Duty cheats (thanks PC Gamer). The website and their Discord have since shut down so the message is no longer available, but it offered an apology for the "pain" they've caused:
As some of you may know, Activision Publishing, Inc has filed a lawsuit against CxCheats.net and has made it clear to us that our services violate their Terms of Use. As a result of our lawsuit with Activision, we have agreed to cease development and support for Call of Duty related products or services sold through the site. These products will not be returning to CxCheats in any form. You should also be aware that using third-party tools in Call of Duty may result in suspension or banning of your account by Activision Publishing, Inc or the games developers. We apologize for any pain we've caused to players of Call of Duty.

I guess it's still more profitable to sue cheat creators than patching your broken holes in your game.

It is. You can never make a perfect game. They'll have find security holes. Hackers thrive on that. It's little d!ck energy.

If the publisher goes after the source instead and wins at the lawsuits, it might make others think twice about creating/distributing cheats/hacks. There is no way otherwise to really ever deter hackers/cheaters. They'll continue to do so and unless the developers work as though they're an anti-virus software company, releasing updates nearly weekly for their product, they can't keep up with the hacks/cheats that will be created.

Usually most developers will try to look good at launch and combat the hacks/cheats for weeks or a few months following release if it sold well. Once sales ticker down, they're out and on to the next project.
