Project Origin Renamed F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, Arriving February 10

The sequel to Monolith's spooky shooter F.E.A.R. will now be known as F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin instead of plain old Project Origin. Furthermore, the game will hit PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 10, 2009, according to IGN. nope

Though Monolith created the first F.E.A.R., the sequel was not going to use the brand name as Vivendi owned the title while Monolith held the rights to its characters and settings.

That changed today as Monolith and owner Warner Bros. revealed that they had purchased the F.E.A.R. brand from Activision Blizzard, recently formed from the merger of Activision and Vivendi Games. The conglomerate has previously stated its intent to only retain a handful of Vivendi properties, leaving a number of projects in limbo.
