Monolith Productions has announced that the name of its F.E.A.R. sequel will be Project Origin.

It was the winning entry in the Name Your Fear competition, which the developer ran during the summer months to help it come up with a title for its new game. You might remember that it couldn't just call it F.E.A.R. 2, because it doesn't actually own the rights to the name - old pal Warner Bros does.

Project Origin was picked above other (and much better) finalists Dark Signal and Dead Echo. But our real favourite was the unrecognised and punchy "THE GIRL IN THE KETCHUP STAINED DRESS".

Head over to Monolith's site for more information, like a Hilarious List of Rejects, or a short video about why a name is so important.

F.E.A.R. is a paranormal and actually very creepy shooter that was released on PC back in 2005. It's had subsequent ports to PS3 and 360, and is due new expansion content later this year.
