Interactive Entertainment owned development studio, couldn't make F.E.A.R 2 for Vivendi, so a sequel was announced for Warner. With Vivendi owning the F.E.A.R. name the Warner sequel had to be called something else, so a competition was set up for fans to name the game. It was decided that Project Origin fitted best, so until a week or so ago we'd been looking forward to a game that had the characters from F.E.A.R. but didn't have the name. Then, in a shock announcement, Warner revealed that it had acquired the name from Vivendi - presumably because Activision Blizzard didn't want another FPS in its portfolio - meaning we're kind of back to where we wanted to be a few years ago. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is due for release from Warner in Q1 2009 and we went hands-on with the latest build to see how it's shaping up."
