LMAO
Big time lawsuit was coming down the pipe.

WarZ Devs even had THE NERVE to LIE and say no such trademark or copyright violation was being done even though PC Gamers had a digital copy of the actual COURT DOCUMENTS.

I hate WARZ it's Devs and everything about Infestation Survival stories cause these guys are the WORST. They Lie, They Steal, then they Steal n Lie!

They even copy n pasted League of Legends EULA and used it exactly with League of legends still in it.

Day Z for LIFE!

OR, They are hiding from the law for misleading?

Who knows... The damage has been done anyway...

EDIT: It was hollywood and "World War Z" which made them change!

"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. 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."

The nerve of those guys , you rode the coat tail of a successful thing , ripped it off , literally stole it's naming scheme , and now act as if the incovenience is on your side
