Warner Bros. claims 'Bethesda's allegations are untrue' about Westworld

Although similarities in gameplay are clearly visible from the screenshots alone, Bethesda's accusations actually cut deeper.

Bethesda went on to say that some of the IP used in the Westworld game are the same as the ones used for Fallout Shelter.

Fallout Shelter was released way back in 2015, and it quickly soared to popularity on mobile platforms, prompting the publisher to release it on various other platforms as well.

In fact, they have so much confidence in this claim that they are willing to take Warner Bros, the owners of Westworld, to court.

Westworld was developed by Behaviour Interactive, which also worked on the original release of Fallout Shelter.

Bethesda is yet to comment on this latest development. Warner Bros. has now responded.

Just yesterday, Warner Bros. spoke to GamesIndustry.biz about the case and gave their side of the story. Insisting that the Westworld game is completely new, featuring no code from Behaviour Interactive's previous work.

The company adds that it has been assured by Behaviour Interactive that Bethesda's allegations are not true and that none of the latter's code was used in Westworld Mobile. "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", a representative for WB told the site.

This suggested that the Westworld game was built using the same source code; as Behavior was the one that developed Fallout Shelter as well, mentioned Bethesda in their lawsuit.
