EA: Medal of Honor is officially on shore leave

The Medal of Honor series is now "out of rotation," EA announced during its third quarter financial call. Following Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s poor commercial and critical reception in October, EA is taking Medal of Honor out of commission.

"The game was solid, but the focus on combat authenticity did not resonate with consumers," EA COO Peter Moore said. "Critics were polarized and gave the game scores which were, frankly, lower than it deserved. This one is behind us now. We are taking Medal of Honor out of the rotation and have a plan to bring year-over-year continuity to our shooter offerings."

EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said EA missed the mark, and the marketplace, with Medal of Honor: "We’re in a hit-driven business where it’s about what you can build in a certain period of time and really deliver for the marketplace, and frankly we missed on Medal of Honor. And we take responsibility for that."

Gibeau continued, "If you look at Medal of Honor as a specific case, it was really about a hit missing."

EA’s remaining shooter repertoire includes the Battlefield and Bad Company franchises, Army of Two and, err, Syndicate.
