The War Z, the zombie MMO that launched to much controversy has been forced to change its name. The game will now be known as Infestation: Survivor Stories. The change has been made due to a trademark dispute with a un-named property which is most likely a conflict with World War Z the upcoming film starring Brad Pitt.
The name change was detailed on the Infestation: Survivor Stories Forum. “Effective today, The War Z has changed its name to Infestation: Survivor Stories. This change has come about primarily as a result of some confusion and trademark issues with a similarly titled property.” Said Community Manager Kewk. “While we were reluctant to rename the game so long after launch, especially with nearly 1 million registered players, it was ultimately decided to be in the best interest of our existing community as well as future players in order to eliminate confusion.”
Kewk later went on to insist that players would not notice any changes except for the logo and website.
The name change may actually do the game some good, as the old name holds a negative stigma with many gamers due to the way the game launched. The new name may remove some of this negativity as gamers will associate the copycat claims and the Steam debacle with the old name and not with Infestation: Survivor Stories.
