Medal of Honor is a great franchise but after last year's less-than-impressive Warfighter , publisher Electronic Arts has opted to take the series "out of rotation." Too bad.
Sales expectations were not met with the FPS follow-up that should've been a pretty huge blockbuster, and it's hard to say what this means for developer Danger Close games. Right now, according to what an EA rep told GameSpot , the studio has no announced projects. Here's part of EA's statement on the matter:
"We haven’t announced a new project for the Medal of Honor development team, although there are other projects in development in Los Angeles and throughout our other EA studios. Medal of Honor is a great franchise with a storied past. We recognize and appreciate the value of the franchise. We’re going to give Medal of Honor a rest while we plan its return. We haven’t made any decision on how or when it will return."
Medal of Honor is one of those franchises that has been up and down over the past couple of generations and there's no knowing when it will return. I do, however, have fond memories of the original MoH on PlayStation and the fantastic Medal of Honor: Frontline for the PS2.
