Monolith Reclaims F.E.A.R. Label

Things get confusing when an industry experiences major corporate shuffling, but we'll do our best to clarify things in regards to Monolith Studios and their freshly renamed sequel.

When Activision absorbed Vivendi Games and its subsidiary, Sierra Entertainment, several games and development studios were placed in uncomfortable limbo. We're still not sure of the fate of titles like Brutal Legend and 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, but Monolith Entertainment has come out smelling like roses. According to GameSpot, the developer has revealed they have officially "reacquired the rights to make games under the name F.E.A.R., a franchise it created for publisher Vivendi in 2005." This means the highly anticipated sequel, Project Origin, will snag the old F.E.A.R. name and the new title is, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. It's now scheduled to arrive for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 10, 2009. This makes things a little easier to understand for fans of the original atmospheric FPS; up until now, some probably weren't aware that Project Origin was indeed the sequel.

So just remember, we're not talking about a brand new game, here; we're talking about a project that has been in the works for a while and now has a new new name. There, that's not too tough to understand, is it?

I'm actually getting this on PC just because my PC can play Crysis on maximum video caption. So this game is no problem!

Ace if your PC can run Crysis at maximum settings then that would mean your rig is more powerful than NASA. We better watch out I think Ace has built Skynet. It is now only a matter of time before the machines take over!!!

I gave up playing games on the PC when I got my PS3. I got tired of dumping 600 dollars into my PC every year and a half to play games. I'll be getting this one on the best console out there thank you
