EA puts Medal of Honor on hold following dismal Warfighter s

Your comments on our articles.

"Frankly we missed on Medal of Honor, and we take responsibility for that."

Medal of Honor is no more, at least for the moment. During a financial call picked up by Eurogamer last night, EA's chief operating officer Peter Moore called time on the resurrected franchise in light of "well below expectations" sales of the recent Medal of Honor: Warfighter.... read more

EA puts Medal of Honor on hold following dismal Warfighter s

Good news everyone!

No, seriously it is, if there's anything more annoying than BF3 trying to cannibalise the CoD market it's EA putting the two year rotation cycle to make MoH fight treyarch, it is silly business as MoH was always going to get seen as comparatively ship even if it wasn't. As long as Danger Close are still working this is only good news - maybe MoH will go back to being a ww2 spy like in the original games. Or maybe they'll have a new ip to work on. Either way, they wont have to be compared to CoD, which will help their market share.

Now, EA are still going to want a two year rotation cycle game for Nov release, is it respawn? Bad Company? Didn't they just buy homefront too lol? Don't forget EA always have new IP somewhere, and we might actually get great games pumped out, rather than FPS we might see an RPGy shooter taking it's place - the success of borderlands and fallout can't be ignored...

Like the proffessor said... good news!

I've not played Warfighter, but the previous MOH game was a bit lacklustre. I did enjoy the campaign, though it was nothing to write home about, and the multiplayer was dismal. And that is a game pitched directly against whichever COD offering is doing the rounds at the time. Against a poor COD like MW2 it would have stood a better chance.

The last time I really enjoyed a Medal of Honor game was Underground!

Underground was amazing! Frontline was also good though.

Frontline was my favourite, I forget what the one after that was, but that one (on Gamecube) was OK too, and I seem to remember Rising Sun being meh.

I have fond memories of MOH but that's all, I've moved on really,

Will be interesting to see what fills the void, Mirror's Edge 2 perhaps? (stop dribbling Ed)
