It was only a matter of time before EA stepped in and made a decision regarding the struggling Medal of Honor series, and it looks like EA is pulling the series down for a while, as the team hopes to come up with new ideas for the franchise. EA stated that the franchise will be “going out of rotation.” It looks like EA paid attention to what the thousands of game critics and players were saying about the game, none of it being positive obviously. Peter Moore, EA COO, stated the following, “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.”
EA is taking the resonsibility of really mishandling the reboot of one of most popular first person shooters of it’s time. The only good news that could come from this, is that the series is not done forever, you just won’t be seeing any new MOH games anytime soon.
