Project Origin

Project Origin is the upcoming sequel to F.E.A.R in development by Monolith Productions for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

The sequel is not titled F.E.A.R. 2 due to Vivendi’s ownership of the F.E.A.R. name.[2] However, the follow-up will stay in the game’s existing universe, retaining the original storyline and characters, although it won’t recognize Extraction Point or Perseus Mandate.[citation needed] Monolith Productions will require a new publisher for the game, since they were purchased by Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment in 2004 while development of F.E.A.R. was under way, after which Vivendi Universal was dropped as publisher Monolith has revealed it will be released in 2008.

The game was shown for the first time at the 2007 E3 Expo.

The sequel to F.E.A.R. continues the supernatural suspense story of an escalating paranormal crisis that threatens to destroy a major American city. At the center of the calamity is the mysterious Alma, whose rage against those who wronged her triggered a chain of events that has spiraled completely out of control. Instead of playing as the Point Man, the game’s protagonist is a Delta Force operative whose squad is sent in to arrest Genevieve Aristide approximately thirty minutes before the ending of F.E.A.R. At some point in the game, the player character, via surgery, will receive reflex powers exhibiting the same slow-motion ability like the Point Man.

On September 21st, the first publicly released trailer, which featured gameplay footage, was revealed on Spike TV’s “Game Head.”

Monolith Productions announced a contest called “Name Your Fear” on June 4, 2007 to find a new name for the sequel. Contestants had until June 22nd to submit a name, after which three finalists would be chosen with fans being able to choose their favorite. The three finalists will have their likeness featured in the upcoming game.A special website was created for this contest.

On August 3, 2007, voting was opened to the public for the three naming finalists, which were Dead Echo, Project Origin and Dark Signal. Voting closed on August 10, 2007. On September 6, 2007 the winner was announced.
