We now know how Behavior Interactive and Warner Bros. resolved that Bethesda lawsuit over Westworld Mobile’s striking similarity to Fallout Shelter. Behaviour and WB have now pulled Westworld Mobile from app stores and disabled in-app purchases for the game. You can still play for now, but it’ll shut down completely on April 16th. That seems to settle that argument.
Both sides had previously said there was an “amicable” end to the lawsuit. It looks like Bethesda ultimately held all the cards here. Behaviour wasn’t just another developer hopping on a popular trend, which is common in the mobile gaming world. It built Fallout Shelter, and Bethesda accused it of recycling material to develop Westworld. Whether or not the claims are true, we may never know, but Behaviour faced a potentially costly legal battle to defend the title, which is indeed very similar to Fallout Shelter.
If you are a player who has been enjoying Westworld Mobile, you have until April 16th to enjoy it.
“We are sorry to see the Westworld mobile game go,” a Beahviour Interactive statement reads. “And we had an incredible time creating new content and events for players to enjoy. We deeply appreciate our community’s enthusiasm and participation in the game.”
