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

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

Bethesda Softworks and Behaviour Interactive have announced that both parties have resolved the lawsuit previously brought against Behaviour. Behaviour Interactive aided in the development of Fallout Shelter, and Bethesda stated that the Westworld mobile game "has the same or highly similar game design, art style, animations, features and other gameplay elements as Fallout Shelter".

The good news for gamers is that both Fallout Shelter and Westworld remain available for purchase. Bethesda sought damages and the shuttering of the Westworld game. Now the lawsuit has been "amicably resolved", according to Bethesda, although no further details were given.

You may remember that in June past year, Bethesda filed a lawsuit against Behaviour Interactive and Warner Bros. over the new Westworld mobile game. Bethesda had originally sought damages and for Behaviour Interactive to halt distribution of the Westworld game. While Warner Bros. Entertainment goes unmentioned in the update, the conclusive tone seems to indicate that the publisher was indeed included in the resolution.

Chelsea and Monaco are close to agreeing a deal for Cesc Fabregas to move to the Ligue 1 side, according to Sky sources. The 18-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch to Bayern Munich and could move to Germany later this month.

On December 12th, 2018, a notice was filed in federal court as the two Companies had come to a satisfied agreement to settle the lawsuit.

The suit was filed yesterday in US District Court for the District of Maryland, and among other monetary claims for relief, Bethesda is seeking for the Westworld game to be removed from distribution.

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.
