Rumor: Third F.E.A.R. To Be Revealed Next Month
Sometimes, the best scoops come from overseas, when certain things leak out ahead of time.
It started with a NeoGAF poster and the apparent finding of a big ol' ad for the third installment in the critically acclaimed F.E.A.R. series. It comes from a Spanish gaming publication; "F.3.A.R." should be featured in it next month, and as GameSpot dove into the issue, we find that it may not be bogus. After Activision axed many of Vivendi's projects back in the 2008 merger, Monolith Entertainment snapped up the rights to F.E.A.R., which eventually allowed F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin to hit store shelves not much later. The scan of the magazine shows what might be the protagonist, that freaky girl Alma, who - and this is even freakier - appears to be pregnant. Then there are two men and rumors persist as to who they might be, but GameSpot thinks the long-haired guy could be a member of the First Encounter Assault Recon team, and the other could be original antagonist Paxton Fettel. As for the backdrop, there's obviously something vicious going on; it looks like some sort of nuclear holocaust.
I think they just wanted to get to the third installment so they could cleverly replace the "E" with a "3." It's proper incentive, right?
