Warner Bros. Says Bethesda's Westworld Lawsuit is "Unsubstantiated"

The legal drama continues.

Warner Bros. issued a statement pushing back against Bethesda's lawsuit over the Westworld mobile game, calling the lawsuit "surprising" and "unsubstantiated."

Bethesda accused Warner Bros. and Behaviour Interactive of stealing Bethesda's IP in the form of code to build Westworld on mobile. Warner Bros.' full response to GamesIndustry.biz can be found below:

"As one of the world's leading creators of intellectual property, including the ground-breaking television series Westworld, Warner Bros. has a deep respect for intellectual property rights. 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," said Warner.

Westworld mobile.

Behaviour Interactive also issued a statement that "Bethesda's allegations are untrue and that none of Bethesda's code was used in the Westworld game." Warner added that it "at no time 'induced' Behaviour to use the Fallout Shelter code in Westworld."

Bethesda issued a lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Behaviour over the Westworld mobile game which launched on iOS and Android last week. Bethesda alleges that Behaviour used code from Fallout Shelter, which Behaviour worked on, to make Westworld on mobile. Bethesda cites similar bugs present in both games as evidence of the theft. Bethesda is seeking the Westworld game be pulled from the app stores as well as damages.
