Bethesda Settles Lawsuit Over Behaviour Interactive's 'Fallout Shelter' Rip-Off

Bethesda & Behaviour Interactive Settle Westworld Mobile Game Kerfuffle

Warner Bros. Interactive and Bethesda softworks have come to an agreement in a lawsuit over the former Company's mobile Westworld game.

Bethesda and Behaviour Interactive have announced that an amicable resolution has been reached in the lawsuit between the two.

One of the main focal points of these claims was that a glitch existed in Fallout Shelter that was reproducible in the exact same way in Westworld mobile. Entertainment, is a rip-off of "Fallout Shelter" has been "amicably" resolved.

Previous year we reported that Bethesda had launched a lawsuit against Warner Bros. Bethesda sought damages and the shuttering of the Westworld game.

What made the claim especially interesting is that Behaviour also developed Fallout Shelter, leading to Bethesda's allegation that it wasn't just visually similar, but that the studio used "Bethesda's computer code, game designs, and other intellectual property as the foundation for the Westworld game".

Bethesda originally worked with Behavior on Fallout Shelter. Entertainment, which is the publisher of the title.

While this statement was shared yesterday, according to Polygon, a notice was filed in federal court on December 12, 2018 and stated that both sides agreed to pay for their own costs and attorney's fees.

At the moment, Westworld is still available on the App Store for iOS devices and the Google Play Store for Android devices.

Understandably, there was animosity between Warner Bros and Bethesda, with the defendant calling the claims "baseless" and asserting that it takes copyright seriously.
