Bethesda's lawsuit against Westworld mobile game resolved

"Moreover, contrary to Bethesda's baseless accusation, Warner no time "induced" Behaviour to use the Fallout Shelter code in Westworld", stated the publisher. Now the lawsuit has been "amicably resolved", according to Bethesda, although no further details were given. It claimed in its lawsuit that Behavior copied its code "to compress its development timeline, reduce costs and quickly bring the Westworld mobile game to market". What the details of that settlement are nearly certainly will never be known, but it's likely safe to say that it netted Bethesda a certain amount of money or a percentage of sales from the Westworld Mobile app. Bethesda had originally sought damages and for Behaviour Interactive to halt distribution of the Westworld game.

The terms of the resolution weren't revealed.

"Warner Bros. has been assured by the game developer, Behaviour Interactive, that Bethesda's allegations are untrue and that none of Bethesda's code was used in the Westworld game".

In fact, both agreed to settle in November past year, according to court filings, and the matter was resolved by December 12.

It explained that Westworld had similar "game design, art style, animations, features, and other gameplay elements" present in Fallout Shelter, which Bethesda owns.

In the lawsuit Bethesda filed in a Maryland U.S. District Court back in June, the company alleged that the Westworld game for iOS and Android released in 2018 was a "blatant rip-off" of Fallout Shelter, which was launched in 2015 and developed in collaboration with Behaviour Interactive.
