Medal of Honor franchise no longer part of EA's 'rotation'

By Andrew Yoon, Jan 30, 2013 2:45pm PST

The Medal of Honor series is apparently being put on hold. Although the 2010 reboot of EA's FPS series was successful for the company, its follow-up was not. 2012's Warfighter met lackluster reviews, and equally dismal sales. According to EA, the title performed "well below our expectations."

EA COO Peter Moore said that "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," he said. With Danger Close's FPS tabled, it appears EA is placing even more weight behind the Battlefield franchise.
