for those that don't know Bethesda are suing Warner Bros over their new Westworld game which REALLY looks like its just a re-skinned fallout shelter.
Lawsuit

I am usually the first person to call bullshit on companies filing frivolous lawsuits , and being copyright/patent trolls - hey PUBG, FUCK YOU - But it does look like Bethesda have a genuine case here. The same dev made both games so its fairly likely they re-used assets and code from fallout Shelter.

It's not like Fallout Shelter is a huge success, it's even free so I don't know why Bethesda, or rather ZeniMax, decided to do that.

@"Azreg" i would disagree on it not being a success. over 100 million downloads is pretty fucking successful. and they would only need a tiny fraction of that to still be playing and spending real money for it to be making them money. `

Doesn't matter whether is "succesful" or makes money, the thing is Bugthesda's property.

@"ElMaldito" yes that's my take on it anyway. If the westworld game is built using any code or assets from Fallout shelter then Bethesda and Zenimax have right to sue IMO.

It is a blatant rip off of Fallout Shelter. Not to mention it is being created by an Ex-Fallout Shelter dev so Bethesda has a lot of reasons to do this lawsuit.

Personally I do not really care closed eyes smile

It literally looks like the result if Fallout Shelter had mod support. Skeptic

meh, never really got into Fallout Shelter.

Funny how they must've literally copied the code and didn't realize the same bug was there.

Really all of this is going to come down to how closely both game mimic each other, but personally I think all of these lawsuits are becoming quite silly.

At least there is a lawsuit in gaming that actually makes sense, I agree that they have strong grounds to sue
