Bethesda Has Resolved Lawsuit Over Westworld Mobile Game



Fallout Shelter

Last year, Bethesda filed lawsuit against Warner Bros. Entertainment over Westworld Mobile, which Bethesda alleged was overly similar to Fallout Shelter. Behaviour Interactive, the developer of both games, was also named in the lawsuit, which Warner Bros. called baseless. Now Bethesda has announced that the lawsuit has been resolved amicably among all parties.

“Bethesda Softworks and Behaviour Interactive jointly announced today that the parties have amicably resolved the lawsuit Bethesda brought against Behaviour and others related to the Fallout Shelter and Westworld mobile games,” Bethesda said in a statement. While not directly named, it is likely that Warner Bros. Entertainment is also included in this resolution.

At the center of Bethesda’s claim was Westworld Mobile was in fact reusing code from Fallout Shelter, which Bethesda paid for when Behaviour was making the game for them. To illustrate this example, Bethesda pointed out that a glitch that went unfixed in Fallout Shelter was reproducible in the exact same way in Westworld Mobile.

While none of the parties have indicated what the resolution entails, it is probable that Bethesda received monetary compensation they were seeking in the original lawsuit.
