Medal of Honor: Warfighter revealed, taking on Call of Duty in 2012, EA releases first image

Release date set in October

EA's Danger Close Studios is supposedly working on a new Medal of Honor game, according to an article on Game Informer. The title, apparently called Medal of Honor: Warfighter, is said to be running on DICE's Frostbyte 2.0 engine, following the story of US Tier 1 Operators on an operation to... fight bad guys.

We think. We don't know for sure, but with a title like "Warfighter" it's safe to assume there will be wars fought. Or maybe we'll be fighting wars by protesting them. Now, that'd be a nice change of pace, wouldn't it?

So far that's the only real information we have, besides the fact that the multiplayer is to be developed in-house by Danger Close, instead of sent out to DICE as it was with the last version.

This is all apparently coming out of next month's Official Xbox Magazine, which should be hitting newsstands in the near future with screenshots, more details on the game's campaign (which we're praying is better than Battlefield 3's), and a full unveiling of the multiplayer. Probably. Or you can wait until GDC, when we expect to see the game and find out how EA is planning on taking on Call of Duty in 2012.

UPDATE: EA has since confirmed the game's existence and even released the first image on the Medal of Honor site. Take a look:

Also, our pals at Official Xbox Magazine have elaborated on the reveal of their big cover story. You can read it all here.
