At the beginning of this year the creators of Project Cars, Slightly Mad Studios, surprised with the announcement of the Mad Box console. Now, according to new information, the company had been forced to change the name of the device after a claim by a French casual games company.
According to PC Games Insider, last 25 of March Madbox, which is how the aforementioned Gala company is known, filed an allegation to the registration of the trademark by Slightly Mad Studios alleging the existence of a serious risk of confusion. Days later, on April 5, the British studio withdrew its application to EUIPO, the body in charge of discerning all these issues in Europe.
Of course, there is always the option of Slightly Mad Studios battling for the use of this term or reach an agreement with the French company, but everything seems to indicate that the responsible team will have to look for a new name for Mad Box, to console that also changed its design recently.
