The past week EA has announced that it plans to indefinitely archive project Medal of Honor, brand and series of FPS games.
The publisher said that the recent release of the series have failed to achieve good vemdite, and has addressed the critical reviews about the strong accusation not very passionate and very low scores assigned to Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which would place the last nail in the coffin of the game. According to Peter Moore, COO of EA, the reviews have been very dedicated to the Warfighter “less than what he deserved.”
Frank Gibeau, president of EA Labels, admitted the failure and the loss suffered by EA with Medal of Honor, and the lack of prospects encouraging in this regard, inevitably mean that the project Medal of Honor no longer has any financial sense to continue.
The Medal of Honor was established in 1999. Over the last 13 years have been 14 games released bearing his name, spread out over several formats including PC, PlayStation, PSP, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, GameCube, Game Boy, Xbox and Mac
The latest version, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, it was a real flop, though. Regardless of what Peter Moore thinks, Metacritic has averaged less than 55 percent for one of its platforms (PS3, Xbox 360 or PC) with good reason. The game was clearly rushed and this has meant an overall quality not eccesa. In fact, the AI was highlighted as particularly poor, and was found to contain a few bugs.
The news has upset many supporters and fans of this game, especially to those who are passionate about the games of the first set and, for them it is a real shame. All we hope that the decision to kill the brand is reconsidered at a later time and you could get a reboot of the project, hoping that the management is assigned to a developer recognized and able to start a new cycle of development realistic and achievable by EA .
Medal of Honor could be a number that can compete with games like Call of Duty and Battlefield. Unfortunately, the management of EA in recent years has been very poor.
