Westworld mobile game will be complete shut down by April

The Westworld mobile game will be fully shut down in April, Warner Bros. and Behaviour have announced.

Likely the result of an “amicable” resolution to a lawsuit filed against Behaviour and Warner Bros. by Fallout Shelter‘s BethesdaWestworld has been removed from mobile App Stores already. In-game purchases cannot be made from today onward and those with existing in-game currency will need to spend it before 16 April 2019.

The game’s official Twitter account posted the news over the weekend.

Bethesda’s lawsuit against Westworld alleged that Behaviour — the developer of both games — used code from Fallout Shelter in the TV tie-in; in fact, Bethesda called the game a “blatant rip-off”. Earlier this month, Bethesda said the lawsuit had been “amicably resolved”.

Fallout Shelter is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch iOS and Android devices.
