Speaking to PSM3 magazine, Medal of Honor producer Patrick Liu responded to the controversy over the ability to play against Americans as Taliban soldiers in multiplayer for the upcoming Medal of Honor game.

“I think it is a fair point. We do stir up some feelings, although it’s not about the war, it’s about the soldiers,” explained Liu. Set during the 2001 War in Afghanistan, the singleplayer campaign will follow several Tier One Operators working for the US military. But Liu doesn’t think that the new Medal of Honor title will be too provocative. “We can’t get away from what the setting is and who the factions are but, in the end, it’s a game, so we’re not pushing or provoking too hard.”
