I argued that it seemed odd that they only put 'Complete Edition' on the cover and suggested this would not tell anyone anything who had never played the game before. One person put forward a decent argument why they'd do that but I wasn't completely convinced. Why not just put 'Plus Frozen Wilds DLC' on the cover? Mmmm ... maybe ...
Here's the cover in question:
Now take a look at this:

The effective filing date of the pending application(s) identified below precedes the filing date of applicant’s application.

The USPTO will periodically conduct a status check of the application to determine whether suspension remains appropriate, and the trademark examining attorney will issue as needed an inquiry letter to applicant regarding the status of the matter on which suspension is based. TMEP §§716.04, 716.05. Applicant will be notified when suspension is no longer appropriate. See TMEP §716.04.
No response to this notice is necessary; however, if applicant wants to respond, applicant should use the “Response to Suspension Inquiry or Letter of Suspension” form online at http://teasroa.uspto.gov/rsi/rsi.
I don't think it's much of a stretch to suggest the reason they didn't put Frozen Wilds on the cover is because they already knew about this.
Case solved me thinks! :)
