The War Z Is No More
Last year’s biggest train wreck, The War Z, has now been renamed to Infestation: Survivor Stories.
The reason for the name changed has been sited as ”a result of some confusion and trademark issues with a similarly titled property.” The property in question is most likely World War Z which has recently spawned a film due out in the next few weeks. The name change will not effect any of the in-game content or any of the registered accounts.
The full press release is as follows:
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. Please rest assured that this will in NO WAY affect you as players. The only difference you will see is the change in logo and website. There will be no interruption of service or change in content.
So, welcome to Infestation: Survivor Stories – have fun and stay alive!”
