In a very weird turn of corporate events, Warner and Monolith just announced
that they've acquired the F.E.A.R.
name and license back from Sierra who initially was going to create their own non-Monolith involved F.E.A.R.
sequel. So, with the new name purchase, Project Origin
will no longer be the spiritual successor to F.E.A.R.
but will instead be the official sequel, now titled F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
Even with the newly acquired F.E.A.R.
name, Monolith will be keeping "Project Origin" in the name not only because of the branding
they've already being doing, but because they promised the fans
. Along with the name change, Lith has confirmed that F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
will release to retail on February 10th, 2009.
