Medal Of Honor Not Dead After All

Medal Of Honor Not Dead After All

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?

    i would! and the reason why sales were so shitty. is because they released this game, right when Halo 4, Black Ops 2 and ACIII had just come out, its a shame cause MOHW is really a great game. and more and more people are buying now that its brand new with maps at walmart for $20. worth it? i think so! the game is fun! and my platoon is slowly but surely moving up the ranks….ranked 22 in the world. not bad considering a few months ago we were ranked 7600

    Worst game? Come on! That game was awesome. I loved everything about it except it was super short. Then again ive been a MoH fanboy since PS1 so im a bit partial to the brand… Bad marketing is not a reason to call the game a “bad” game

    The first medal of honor was hands down the best moden story line war game. I wasnt a fan of the second but i would absolutly love to see a third MOH!!! Medal of honor: Redemption??? In more sense then one.
