Medal of Honor Still Banned in Military Stores

The Taliban are now the "Opposing Force" in Medal of Honor’s multiplayer, but the military still isn’t planning to sell the upcoming shooter in its stores.
Army & Air Force Exchange Service commander Major General Bruce Casella said that the decision was made out of "respect to those we serve."

"We regret any inconvenience this may cause authorized shoppers, but are optimistic that they will understand the sensitivity to the life and death scenarios this product presents as entertainment," he said.

"As a military command with a retail mission, we serve a very unique customer base that has, or possibly will, witness combat in real life."

The AAFES confirmed in early September that none of the 49 GameStops located on military bases across the continental U.S. will be selling the reboot. Customers will be directed to an off-base location.

The military initially supported Medal of Honor, but spokesperson Kenneth Hawes admitted that the Department of Defense was "a little surprised" to learn the Taliban had been included as part of the game’s multiplayer. The Army ultimately never sent a request for the removal of the faction, though EA opted to change the name based on "feedback from friends and families of fallen soldiers who have expressed concern over the inclusion of the Taliban in the multiplayer portion of our game."

Medal of Honor will be out October 12.
