Bethesda & Behaviour Interactive Settle Westworld Mobile Game Kerfuffle

Apparently, WB hired Behavior to make Westworld, and Bethesda alleges some of the IP used in the recent game's creation stems from previous work on Fallout Shelter. Burying the hatchet, Bethesda has dropped legal proceedings, settling with Behaviour Interactive before it escalated to court.

ROCKVILLE, Md. (Jan. 3, 2019) - Bethesda Softworks and Behaviour Interactive jointly announced today that the parties have amicably resolved the lawsuit Bethesda brought against Behaviour and others related to the Fallout® Shelter and Westworld mobile games.

Idaho teacher accused of feeding sick puppy to turtle found not guilty
When Crosland appeared in court in July, he pleaded not guilty and his attorney says he believes his client is good. On March 7, 2018, the teen said Crosland told him he had a sick puppy and asked if the teen wanted to take it home.

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

Turns out, it might have a bit too much in common with that game, as Bethesda is suing Warner Bros. and Behavior Interactive, the developers contracted to make Fallout Shelter for Bethesda. Bethesda sought damages and the shuttering of the Westworld game. Bethesda, Behaviour, and Warner Bros. each will bear their own costs, including attorney's fees; however no other terms of the settlement were disclosed. In response to this, Warner Bros. soon fought back, describing Bethesda's claims as "baseless". It is not uncommon for settlement details to remain under wraps. Last year, Bethesda accused the team of using assets from Fallout Shelter for the Westworld game, though now it looks like everything has been settled. Like a fabulous shooter once said, get psyched!
