    It's no big secret in the gaming world that Vivendi studios and Monolith Productions, the two companies behind F.E.A.R., aren't working together anymore. And so, this means that there was a large battle over the F.E.A.R. franchise. Vivendi got the rights to F.E.A.R., but Monolith got all the characters. While the rest of us scratch our heads in confusion, Warner Brothers Interactive announced that Vivendi was developing a F.E.A.R. sequel. Vivendi is proudly naming it 'Project Origin', a title that gamers chose. There is no word as of yet what Vivendi plans to do with none of the rights to the original characters. We'll keep you posted.

    I wonder if I could point out a few things first.
    Monolith is the company that actually Created F.E.A.R.
    Vivendi is simply the publisher.

    Much like with Far Cry and Ubisoft, now Vivendi owns F.E.A.R. even though they didn't actually do anything to develop it.
    I don't understand why they couldn't just agree to work together once again.

    Monolith handed over the reigns to TimeGate (so they could move on to other things), who created the "Extraction Point" expansion.
    They are supposed to come out with another expansion called "F.E.A.R : Perseus Mandate".

    Didn't Sierra have their hands in there somewhere too ?

    I are getting confusidated :wtf:

    Makes sense to me, Monolith the actual creator and designer wants an expansion and Vivendi wants more money. Which means sequel not expansion. Thats the problem with Publishers.

    btw F.E.A.R. rocks ;P
