Danger Close developing new Medal of Honor
DC producer Greg Goodrich kicked off a blog post entitled "In case you were wondering..." by saying: "Yes, Danger Close is currently working on the next Medal of Honor."
Goodrich continued: "Since our launch last October, weve studied, listened and absorbed much of your feedback and are very excited to be marching forward on the next title. We cant wait to tell you more about it, so check back often to the website and the fan page on Facebook.
"Its going to be a fun ride for the Medal of Honor franchise. We are happy to have you aboard."
Danger Close rebooted the series last October alongside Battlefield developer DICE. It went on to sale 5 million units since its launch.
The EALA studio was thought to be working on a new project before tonights confirmation. The studio was hiring for an "unannounced AAA first person shooter title" as recently as early January.
EA CEO John Riccitiello said in the companys Q2 financial call in October that the game, despite reviewing in the "mid-70s", was a "clear success and consumer feedback has been strong and its a franchise we can successfully continue in the future."
