Bethesda settles lawsuit alleging that Westworld ripped off Fallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter Lawsuit Involving Allegedly Stolen Code in Westworld Mobile Resolved by Bethesda and Behaviour Interactive

Bethesda Settles Lawsuit Over Westworld Game It Claimed Was A Ripoff Of Fallout Shelter

Have you enjoyed either Fallout Shelter or Westworld?

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. Bethesda sought damages and the shuttering of the Westworld game.

Conversely, publisher Warner Brothers contested the validity of the Bethesda copyright lawsuit.

Bethesda and Behaviour Interactive have announced that an amicable resolution has been reached in the lawsuit between the two. According to Polygon, though, a notice filed in federal court on December 12th said issue has been resolved and that both sides agreed to pay for their attorney's fees. Moreover, Bethesda's claims were dismissed with prejudice, which means that it can no longer file another case with the same claims.

However, before you get the particular loading screen, you'll have to complete the challenges mentioned in the 5th week's list. This is a rather simple and easy task to do but you have to actually know where the tower is before you can complete it.

You may remember that in June previous year, Bethesda filed a lawsuit against Behaviour Interactive and Warner Bros. over the new Westworld mobile game. As such, the assertions by Bethesda Softworks that Warner's Westworld mobile game improperly used source code from Bethesda's Fallout Shelter are as surprising as they are unsubstantiated.

On top of that, there were some bugs in Westworld that were in an earlier version of Fallout Shelter, making a strong case for Bethesda's claim.

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

The lawsuit that Bethesda brought against developer Behaviour and media giant Warner Bros. over a Westworld video game has come to an end, it seems.
