TMZ is reporting that Bethesda is embroiled in a lawsuit with Warner Bros. Interactive and Behaviour Interactive over its Westworld mobile app that was released earlier this week. The suit alleges that Behaviour "stole its designs and codes" for use in its Westworld game. 

Behaviour was hired by Bethesda in 2014 to assist with Fallout Shelter and it is here where the legal tussle begins. Bethesda alleges that the code used for Westworld is the same that is used in Fallout Shelter. "Bethesda believes there's a smoking gun -- the same bugs that appeared in an earlier version of Fallout showed up in the Westworld game" TMZ writes.

The lawsuit seeks a stop to all publication of the mobile Westworld game and a portion of the currently earned profits.
