The case has now been settled, however: Bethesda and Behaviour released a joint statement yesterday saying that the "have amicably resolved the lawsuit Bethesda brought against Behaviour and others related to the Fallout Shelter and Westworld mobile games".

However, Warner Bros. Entertainment defended against Bethesda's accusation, saying that Behaviour Interactive said it didn't use any code from Fallout Shelter in developing the mobile game.

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

No further explanation was offered. Fallout Shelter had originally been created under contract with the stipulation that none of the assets or code would be reused in other projects.

Well, that no longer is the case, as both Bethesda and developer Behaviour Interactive announced this afternoon that the lawsuit has now been resolved.

Past year we reported that Bethesda had launched a lawsuit against Warner Bros.

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

Promoting the show of the same name, Westworld hit iOS and Android stores on June 21, 2018, quickly attracting unwanted attention from Bethesda. Entertainment, which is the publisher of the title.
