About a weeks ago, EA confirmed Medal of Honor series is out of rotation altogether. Due to the facts after the bad sales and unanimously poor reviews for ‘Medal of Honor: Warfighter’.
On a report today, EA confirm Medal of Honor need a new direction
“It needs new direction, not shelving until the next inevitable reboot in five years time, once Battlefield has run entirely aground.”
Hilleman admitted that EA performance toward Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s was fully at fault for the the bad performance.
A brief interview at last week’s during DICE conference , he said “We don’t think its a genre problem,” “It’s an execution problem. We don’t think Medal of Honor’s performance speaks to any particular bias in that space against modern settings or World War II or any of that. It’s much more that we had some things we should’ve done better.”
“What we think right now is that, for the next couple years, we can just have one great thing in that space. So we’re choosing for it to be Battlefield.”
“I think a key part of this is having the right amount of high-quality production talent,” he explained. “And we didn’t have the quality of leadership we needed to make [Medal of Honor] great. We just have to get the leadership aligned. We’re blessed to have more titles than we can do well today. That’s a good problem, frankly. In the long term, we have to make sure we don’t kill those products by trying to do them when we can’t do them well.”
It’ already decided EA is planning to watch and wait to bring back Medal of Honor to the right time.
