Westworld on mobile is closing for business

Westworld on mobile is closing for business

The game will be fully shut down for users by April 16, 2019, according to a statement that appears in-game and on the game's Twitter account.

The Westworld mobile game has not had the smoothest of times. Interactive Entertainment found themselves in a nasty legal dispute with Bethesda a year ago because of Westworld Mobile. The game will be removed from the App Store and Google Play on January 15, 2019, and officially closed on April 16, 2019.

So unless you're one of the few that's already playing it, there's no way you can get a taste of the game in action. "We are sorry to tell you the park is entering a new phase and will no longer be taking applications for new employees". This comes after a lawsuit in which Bethesda alleged that the game was a "blatant rip-off" of Fallout Shelter. As of today, you will no longer be able to make in-game purchases.

Westworld Mobile has shut down just two weeks after developer Behaviour Interactive and publisher Warner Bros. settled a lawsuit brought against it by Bethesda.

For those of you who may be somewhat unfamiliar with the lawsuit, Bethesda chose to sue Westworld Mobile developer Behavior Interactive and Warner Bros. In the meantime, players are advised to use up any remaining in-game currency.

Westworld did have a number of similarities to Fallout Shelter, from the art-style down to certain gameplay mechanics.

KitGuru Says: It looks like Bethesda ultimately won out here, which isn't surprising when you learn about all of the behind-the-scenes stuff that went into creating Fallout Shelter and Westworld. Developer Behaviour Interactive and Bethesda announced that they had "amicably resolved" the suit earlier this month, but did not provide details on the terms of that settlement.
