F.E.A.R. 3 suffers yet another delay

Warner’s upcoming fright-fest F.E.A.R. 3 has been elbowed back to May 2011, having originally been pencilled in for release on March 25.

News comes via a post from a forum administrator on, who wrote: "The F.E.A.R. 3 launch date will now be in May 2011, as we look to deliver the best possible game for our fans."

"Thanks for the patience, I promise it will be worth it."

Sadly, this marks the second time the game’s release has been postponed. Warner first intended to have the horror sequel on shelves in winter 2010, before announcing it had been shoved back to 2011 in August last year.

F.E.A.R. 3 places gamers in the shoes of evil Alma’s offspring Point Man and Paxton Fettel, with the game throwing in co-op play for the first time in the series. Both characters sport their own unique abilities, with one favouring firearms while the other wields the powers of telekinesis.
