Medal of Honor franchise on stand-by
Posted on January 30, 2013 by Drew Bergmark

Starting off EA's 3rd Quarter earnings report, CEO John Riccitiello said the revenue for the fiscal quarter was below expectations due to the shortfall of the newest Medal of Honor title. Despite the digital sales of the games corporation growing by 25%, Blake Jorgensen, EA's Chief Financial Officer, said Medal of Honor didn't help factor into the growing statistic. Peter Moore, former Microsoft executive, commented that Medal of Honor: Warfighter had "poor critical and commercial reception". All this bad news from the top executives of EA means that something has to be something done to the franchise. Peter says the critical scores were lower than the game deserved then he continued by saying that EA will be taking the franchise 'out of the rotation'.

This means that we won't be seeing a Medal of Honor game for the next couple of years as EA's triple-A shooters will be released on a bi-annual schedule. John Riccitiello reiterated from his previous statement saying they were too soft on the console versions of Medal of Honor. While this will probably be the last thing that we'll hear about the Medal of Honor franchise for the next few years, we can start to speculate what'll come from the future of the franchise's original creators: Jason West & Vince Zampella now of Respawn Entertainment. Due to allegations between Activision and the pairing, they were removed from their positions at Infinity Ward and created their new studio who is partnering up with Electronic Arts. We'll be giving more information on this new project soon.

The best cumulative score for Medal of Honor was the PC version receiving 55 out of 100 average on Metacritic. There was no information about cancelling a new Medal of Honor project as any progress thus far would have just been pre-production.
