It would be really stupid to have:
1. One game named FEAR 2 but without Alma and known characters and a totally different universe and story.
2. Another game with a totally new and non-FEAR related name yet starring Alma and happening in the same universe, following the story of FEAR1.

I bet marketing department of both studios is already having nightmares and are praying that other team's game is either canceled or is dramaticly different.

Has everyone heard what the potential new names for F.E.A.R. are? They're 'Dead Echo,' 'Project Origin,' and 'Dark Signal.' I mostly agree with MK_Red on this one, but I think Project Origin would be a passable name.

Sorry this is so off topic but that picture with this article i was wondering where you got it. I really like it and want to use it as wallpaper but would need a much higher res as you are probably aware.

Fear would be a cool movie actually...but yeah MK_RED totally agree it's too confusing.
