'The War Z' too similar to 'World War Z' trademark.

As 'The War Z' continues to accrue bad press, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has suspended the application for a trademark of the title's name, citing a prior pending application for a video game adaptation for the upcoming Brad Pitt vehicle, 'World War Z.'

With 'The War Z' currently suspended from sale on Steam, Joystiq is stating a "name change likely" for the embattled game.
