F.E.A.R. 2 is not the sequel to F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. - First Encounter Assault Recon (FPS game)This is becoming weirder and weirder. I had previously spoken about Ubisoft announcing FarCry 2 to follow in the footsteps of FarCry (a sequel?) while Crytek was working on Crysis (a technical improvement and a sequel). Here, we have to speak of another video game in the First Person Shooter (FPS) category, F.E.A.R. that has the double fame of perfectly immersing the player in a very dark universe and to require an exceptionnaly powerful hardware configuration.

Monolith, the developer of the original game is currently working on the sequel, but they did not keep the rights on the name itself (F.E.A.R.). They have all the technology, the characters, all. But they will have to change the name. On the other side, Vivendi kept the rights to the name, but they have no access to the technology that was underlying the game’s success (not even the names of the key characters or the Artificial Intelligence of the software). So, F.E.A.R. 2 will be a totally different game…
