The lights are on
Electronic Arts has pushed its Medal of Honor franchise out of its yearly shooter rotation after the poor showing last year's Medal of Honor: Warfighter gave.
Speaking on the company's financial briefing call earlier today, EA COO Peter Moore neatly ducked any responsibility for Warfighter's performance. ""The game was solid, but the focus on combat authenticity did not resonate with consumers," Moore said. "Critics were polarized and gave the game scores which were, frankly, lower than it deserved."
No mention of a future revival of the series was made, though Moore also noted that the publisher "[has] a plan to bring year-over-year continuity to our shooter offerings."
Setting aside the mass hallucinations that seized critics and gamers alike and threw off their perceptions of Warfighter's quality – obviously, that's the only explanation for the universal disdain for that title's glitchy multiplayer and uninspired solo campaign – what would you like to see EA do with the Medal of Honor franchise?

Wow I'd like to see Medal of Honor developer go back and redo every thing make a new formula change things up new everything more guns and more play options and see what it is that gamers want
Maybe I'm the only one in the world, but I really enjoyed Warfighter. I thought it had the best campaign out of all the military shooters of 2012 (except maybe Spec Ops), the graphics were outstanding, and the multiplayer was decent enough for me to play actively. I agree, there are plenty of problems with the game, but I thought Danger Close did a pretty good job without the help of Dice. Hopefully, this intermission between potential sequels will be enough to win back the hope of other Medal of Honor fans.
That's a shame.
I loved the campaign in the MoH reboot. I didn't get Warfighter due to bad reviews, but all the videos I've seen of it seems lackluster. Maybe I'll pick it up when it drops to $5 on a sale just for the SP. Maybe.
Maybe the games won't be garbage if it wasn't relaesed so often.
I hate cop-outs. When your game sucks, it's going to receive bad reviews
EA take your time, no need for a rush job!
"Aw, man!" said no one ever.
If only EA would give Danger Close the time they need to make another quality Medal of Honor game.
You'd think that after the huge backlash over Warfighter on their official forums, the rage from EA removing Greg Goodrich (one of the head people at Danger Close), and MOHHQ (pretty much the only MOH fansite) shutting down because of being sick of EA's *** that EA would realize that the problem with MOH is EA.
