Medal of Honor Out of Rotation at EA

Medal of Honor: Warfighter

The Medal of Honor franchise is now “out of the rotation” for EA, the company announced during a financial call on its third quarter.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which released in October last year, received a poor reception both critically and commercially. That seemed to be the final nail in the coffin for EA as the company has now put the series to rest.

[adsense250itp]EA officials believe the game had all the makings for a hit and was the victim of lower review scores than it deserved.

The most recent entry in the Medal of Honor franchise currently holds a 55 score out of 100 on Metacritic. Medal of Honor: Warfighter only sold 300,000 copies in its first week.

There is no word on the future of the Medal of Honor series. It is likely the franchise remains dormant for a time before EA takes another shot at rebooting the game.

The company will focus on its other shooter offerings in order to keep releasing content on an annual basis. Previously, EA would release a Medal of Honor game every other year with games in the Battlefield series filling the gaps.

EA has not announced what the plan is for filling those gaps. It is possible the Battlefield franchise could spawn off a new, similar series much like the Black Ops and Modern Warfare series did to Call of Duty. The Battlefield: Bad Company games are under the same umbrella as Battlefield but are considered a separate entity.

Battlefield has performed admirably enough for EA to show confidence in the franchise. The company announced Battlefield 3 Premium has reached more than 2.9 million subscribers. The next installment in the Battlefield series is not expected to release until 2014.

The company also has a number of additional shooters on their roster, including Army of TWO.
