EA announced in a conference call this evening that they would be pulling Medal of Honor out of their rotation presumably for the foreseeable future. While we enjoyed Medal of Honor: Warfighter, critics - for the most part - did not. The game was fun but it had its share of setbacks and, unfortunately, that can make or break you in this industry.
According to PC Gamer, EA COO Peter Moore said:
The game was solid, but the focus on combat authenticity did not resonate with consumers. Critics were polarised and gave the game scores which were frankly lower than deserved. This one is behind us now. We are taking Medal of Honor out of rotation and have to bring year-over-year continuity to our shooter offerings.
At the time of this writing, no word was available on the fate of Danger Close, the studio who developed the past two Medal of Honor titles. For Battlefield fans, rest assured that EA is very happy with DICE and the direction they are taking the Battlefield franchise in so there is no immediate concern for the future of that series.
As EA had planned to rotate a new Medal of Honor game with a new Battlefield game every year, we're unsure where this leaves that development schedule. We'll update you as soon as we learn more!
