Bethesda and Warner Bros. Amicably Settle Lawsuit Over Westworld Mobile Game

Bethesda & Behaviour Interactive Settle Westworld Mobile Game Kerfuffle

Now the lawsuit has been "amicably resolved", according to Bethesda, although no further details were given.

Bethesda and Behaviour Interactive have announced that an amicable resolution has been reached in the lawsuit between the two. 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. Entertainment over the Westworld mobile game has been settled. Entertainment, which is the publisher of the title.

Filings with the United States District Court in Maryland, where Bethesda is located, show that Bethesda and Behaviour came to terms on a settlement in principle back in November 2018. Behaviour Interactive worked on both Fallout Shelter and Westworld, and Bethesda alleged that portions of code, such as this, were shared between both games (theirs first).

In fact, both agreed to settle in November previous year, according to court filings, and the matter was resolved by December 12. Additionally, Bethesda also dismissed its claims with prejudice meaning Bethesda will be unable to bring forth the same allegations in the future. These can be seen in the gameplay, underground facilities, and 2D cartoon characters set in a 3D environment.

Originally, Bethesda argued that Behaviour Interactive (which was involved in the creation of Fallout Shelter) had stolen designs, artwork, and code from the game, going on to use them again to create Westworld for Warner Bros. Westworld remains available as a free-to-play game on iOS's App Store and Android's Google Play store.
