Activision-Blizzard has agreed to redraw the box art for SCORE International Baja 1000, after THQ complained that the packaging looked too similar to Baja: Edge of Control.
Both depicted a buggy and an air-bound truck in identical formation; a similarity THQ argued would confuse everybody. Apparently THQ had also "exhausted all reasonable efforts" to get Activision-Blizzard to change the art "voluntarily".
According to Patentarcade.com, the case has now been closed; THQ was apparently satisfied enough with the outcome to withdraw the legal complaint.
Baja: Edge of Control is out now for Xbox 360 and PS3, but isn't very good.
SCORE International Baja 1000 doesn't appear to be getting a European release, which, judging by US critical reception, makes sense.
