Bethesda and Warner Bros. Resolve Westworld Fallout Shelter Lawsuit

In June 2018, Bethesda Softworks alleged that Behavior Interactive, the co-developer of Fallout Shelter, had used copyrighted code to make the Westworld mobile game for Warner Bros.. Entertainment. It sued Warner Bros. and Behavior Interactive, alleging that Westworld was a “blatant rip-off” of Fallout Shelter. Now it looks like the lawsuit has been solved. Bethesda claimed the resolution was”amicable” though details were revealed. According to a note filed in US federal court, the two sides had resolved the dispute and needed to pay their own costs and attorney fees. Furthermore, the same claims can not be produced again as Bethesda Softworks disregarded them with bias.

The notice, found by Polygon, was registered on December 12. Lately, Bethesda claimed a Fallout Shelter bug, present in an early build of this game was in Westworld.
