Medal of Honor: Warfighter was arguably the worst MOH game ever released, and after terribly poor sales, EA said it would put the game to rest. But in its latest financial call to investors, the publisher said that Medal of Honor is still part of its unmatched offering of games.
Said EA Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director John Riccitello when speaking about the publisher’s strategies:
By brands, we mean that we have the strongest brand portfolio in the game industry. We will project that portfolio across all relevant digital business models and channels while continuing to invest to grow the power of our brands. Leading the way for EA are blockbusters like Battlefield, Need for Speed, FIFA, Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled, Star Wars, Madden, The Sims, Dragon Age, SimCity, Mass Effect and Medal of Honor. We strongly believe this brand collection is unmatched by any competitor in our industry.
Later in the call, he asked investors to set their gaze to EA’s FY ’13 guidance:
The key considerations for our FY ’13 plan, as it came together these past months, are these: at the foundation is another year of blockbuster brands, Madden NFL, FIFA, SimCity, Medal of Honor, Dead Space and Need for Speed, as well as mobile hits like The Simpsons, Tapped Out and Bejeweled.
I’m not a huge MOH fan, but there are millions of them out there – many on Games Thirst, who would love to see another Medal of Honor title, right?
