Recently Eidos announced its newest title Zero Tolerance : City Under Fire, which was previously known as Roll Call.

Somebody forgot to do their homework and check with the registration, resulting in Eidos getting sued for Copyright Infringement in North America and will have to explain its case before the U.S. Patent Office. Whether this legal action will have an impact on the title's release date is not known, no Eidos representative could be reached for comment.
