Medal of Honor sequel confirmed, currently in development by Danger Close

Executive Producer Greg Goodrich revealed today that EA's Danger Close studio is currently working on the next Medal of Honor game. The 2010 franchise reboot received mixed critical and consumer reactions, but was a commercial success with over five million copies sold worldwide.

In his announcement on EA's official Medal of Honor blog, Goodrich teased, "Since our launch last October, we've studied, listened and absorbed much of your feedback and are very excited to be marching forward on the next title. We can't wait to tell you more about it, so check back often to the website and the fan page on Facebook."

Goodrich went on to reaffirm Danger Close's reverence for "the commitment and sacrifice shown by the men and women of our armed services," and called the next entry "a fun ride for the Medal of Honor franchise."

There's no word yet on whether or not DICE will again be handling the multiplayer portion of the game. For now, at least, the developer seems to be laser-focused on Battlefield 3.

Also, as I don't usually write such bone-dry, straightforward stories, I feel it's my obligation to end this article with a completely tangential statement.

    The campaign was excellent and I'm definitely looking forward to it, although they should definitely have a look at what the hell they were trying to do with the multiplayer. I'm extremely sure that it was in no way DICE's fault that the multiplayer came out so half-assed, as most likely their design limitations got in the way of a proper experience because DICE has shown time and time again that they are top-notch developers and can handle almost anyting thrown at them. That or they just tossed the game out because they were working on Vietnam and didn't care. Either way.

    Medal of Honor was alot better than people gave it credit for. The multiplayer was COD meets Battlefield and it was glorious.

    You're going to give it an 8, like every single game you reviewed in 2010.

    I hope they've learned from their mistakes from the first game, not sure getting dice to do the multiplayer again would be a good move (it kinda just came off as Battlefield BC2 mini version) and as far as SP goes from what I've played of it (haven't finished it, don't actually own in, played the first few levels on my mates ps3) they really need to learn how to do scripted events better... although to be fair so do their competitors (the COD series has gotten worse on that front since COD4 IMO, and Bad Company 2 was pretty dodgy with some of it's scripted sequences). I also really hope a couple (not those whole bloody FPS side of the industry) of studios put out some solid sci-fi fps' soon, and high sci-fi, not the gritty Killzones or Resistance stuff, which are fine, but for some reason I find myself yearning for a Halo... that isn't Halo.

    Don;t you just hark for the days when every FPS was set in WWII...

    I'm all for another Mirror's Edge, or anything new, because this won't even make a scratch when games like Battlefield 3 and MW3 come out. Especially if half of the game is a toned down, crappy version of Battlefield.

    This game should be about a group of beards shooting beards at other beards out of a beardcannon while riding beardcopters and driving beeps and banks. It really should.

    I'm of two minds about this game, on one hand the single player is outstanding, while the multiplayer sucked hairy donkey balls. I just hope that EA doesn't let Dice anywhere near this game other wise I'll never buy another ea game again..

    @RedOutlive 10 Your data is wrong....there are 302967031266 modern FPS games...duh.....
  • RedOutlive10 - February 19, 2011 8:32 p.m.

    It's what the market truly needs, more refreshing ideas, like the 302967031267th modern FPS game.
  • HomieT23 - February 19, 2011 7:07 p.m.

    This get's a sequel but Mirror's Edge doesn't? Bullshit.
  • Modroneman - February 19, 2011 1:41 p.m.

    I am in the camp that this game was mediocre at best. The multiplayer was pretty good but the single player campaign was WAY too short. The characters were forgettable. It had a lot of potential, lets hope they get it right this time. @JayQ Are you serious?
  • RicePuddingUK - February 19, 2011 11:59 a.m.

    They need to expand big time, add more nationalities, there's British, French, Canadians out there too fighting and dying, in the first game they were called Coalition soldiers but I saw no Coalition, just Americans. Need more personal things, have a fleshed out character that talks, the mute hero thing is getting old, let the player know he has a wife and kids.
  • SideOfBeef - February 19, 2011 6:22 a.m.

    Good good. The first game had some great ideas but needed some more oven time and several bucket-loads of polish. Hopefully the sales of the first game will justify giving the sequel what it needs.
  • JangoFettN7 - February 19, 2011 6:16 a.m.

    nice. Looking forward to seeing what the new game will be.
  • shadowreaper72 - February 19, 2011 3:20 a.m.

    Lets just hope this time it sports a single player longer than 4 hours.
  • GayforGilbert - February 19, 2011 2:50 a.m.

    @JayQ: GTFO
  • slowdrum13 - February 19, 2011 2:30 a.m.

    that's awesome. the first one was criminally underrated.
  • JayQ - February 19, 2011 2:27 a.m.

    Just please keep Dice AND their crappy engine away from the multiplayer this time.
  • flare149 - February 19, 2011 2:17 a.m.

    Nice! The first one was definitely underrated and the campaign was way better than BOps
