Following the lawsuit against Zynga filed by The Learning Company regarding the use of The Oregon Trail name, the FrontierVille developers have decided to do something that some of us were hoping they would do (instead of blocking The Oregon Trail release altogether): they have decided to drop the name and let us choose the new one.
On the official forums of the game you can vote on the poll and choose your favorite name from the following list of names that will replace The Oregon Trail in FrontierVille:
- FrontierVille: The Westward Trail
- FrontierVille: The Trail West
- FrontierVille’s Trail West
- FrontierVille’s Westward Trail
- FrontierVille’s Pioneer Trail
- FrontierVille: The Pioneer Trail
I will personally go for the last one, even though FrontierVille’s Trail West doesn’t sound bad either. What will you pick as your favorite expansion name and more important: are you upset to see that The Oregon Trail name will not be used anymore?
