TeamXbox writes: "A recent mix-up in the world of video-game licensing has caused some confusion for the fans of F.E.A.R., the 2005 release from Day 1 Studios. To put the situation in its simplest terms, the sequel to the aforementioned F.E.A.R. title is known as F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin and it will be hitting store shelves sooner than later.
Don't let the apparent development/publishing changes fool you. The fan-derived Project Origin-the name was chosen in a contest-is a follow-up to the '05 original, and the reason why WB Games snagged the F.E.A.R. brand name from one of its competitors. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin does make more sense as a moniker, really, not to mention giving followers of the original some needed piece of mind that their baby is safe and coming to market."
