Project Origin is Now F.E.A.R. 2

IGN writes: "It's a bit funny how the corporate world works. In 2005, Sierra and Monolith put out an acclaimed first-person shooter called F.E.A.R. that blended elements of Japanese-style horror with kinetic gunplay. But prior to that, in 2004, Monolith was acquired by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, which meant that things would get complicated for any follow-up. Sierra owned the name F.E.A.R., but Monolith was the company responsible for actually making it. So what happened next was a bit comical. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced Project Origin, a game that would effectively be the spiritual successor to F.E.A.R., while Sierra would make F.E.A.R. 2 with another developer".

The story is too old to be commented.

lol had minimal interest in this game but now that its called F.E.A.R 2 i think i am interested now. Funny how the mind works. If it releases during a time spot thats good for me in terms of free time to play games and monies to spend on games then i will definitely get it. 1st one was awesome hopefully this one will be too

And you are a prime example of why publishers are afraid of releasing new IP's.

Ahh, what's in a name. I still have to play the 1st one. Which I always meant too.

yeah of the best single player shooters of this decade imo...its not cheap scary like Doom 3 (where it only scares you because of poorly implemented and frustrating gimmicks), but is down right creepy at times...

avoid the PS3 version if you have the option...the 360 and PC versions look significantly better...FEAR is arguably the worst port the PS3 ever received...but even the PS3 version is worth playing through if its your only option...I would just recommend renting it over buying it though...

I've been excited for the monolith sequel since I finished the first game...the name was irrelevant to me anyway...a little frustrated that its not coming out till February (thought it was already confirmed for fall), but whatever...will probably be a lot of fun...
