Medal of Honor franchise back in the bin
EA’s Peter Moore announced during an investor conference call that the publisher has decided to no longer continue with the Medal of Honor franchise due to disappointing results of its latest iteration, Warfighter.
“We struggled with two challenges: the slowdown that impacted the entire sector and poor critical and commercial reception for Medal of Honor Warfighter,”
“Medal of Honor was an obvious miss. The game was solid, but the focus on combat authenticity did not resonate with consumers.
“Critics were polarized and gave the game scores which were, frankly, lower than it deserved,”
“This one is behind us now. We are taking Medal of Honor out of the rotation, and have a plan to bring year-over-year continuity to our shooter offerings,”
We reviewed Warfighter ourselves and gave it a 6/10. The singleplayer contained quite some bugs and never managed to bring forth the promised realism. We did like the multiplayer though so sad to see this one go away again. I guess we’ll have to stay with Battlefield then…
