Medal of Honor 2 In Development

A sequel to the 2010 reboot is in the works


EA have been a busy bunch of bees in the past couple of weeks. We’ve already reported on new DLC releasing for Need for Speed and that Battlefield 3 will be launching this fall, but now there’s even more news! While it wasn’t unexpected that we would eventually hear about a sequel to 2010’s Medal of Honor, it is unusual for a developer to come out and say ‘Hey, we’re working on that game right now’ when it’s a big title like Medal of Honor (typically there’s cloaks and daggers and secrecy and intrigue first). But that, my friends, is just what Danger Close did today on the official Medal of Honor blog.

This is Executive Producer Greg Goodrich’s post entitled In case you were wondering…:

Yes, Danger Close is currently working on the next Medal of Honor.

Just recently, EA announced that the reboot of Medal of Honor was a big success with over 5 million copies sold. We wanted to take a moment to thank each of you for supporting us, our new studio and our storied franchise. We would especially like to thank all of the long time Medal of Honor fans out there who have stuck with us over the years.

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.

As you all know, our goal was to tell the story of today’s soldier and to do so with the utmost respect and reverence. We’ve received many letters, emails and messages from active servicemen and women from around the world, along with veterans and their families, with appreciation for our recent depiction of their community. I can’t tell you how important this is to everyone here at Danger Close Games. You are the heartbeat of this team and this franchise and we are privileged and honored to tell your story. Medal of Honor has always been fueled by the passion of our fans and the commitment and sacrifice shown by the men and women of our armed services.

It’s going to be a fun ride for the Medal of Honor franchise. We are happy to have you aboard.

Medal of Honor

Medal of Honor did have quite a bit of room for improvement on the multiplayer side (which wasn’t handled by Danger Close), but the single player campaign was one of the most (if not the most) satisfying and poignant stories about the armed forces I’ve ever played. It was a far cry from the military-people-are-mindless-killing-machines approach that we’ve been subject to over the last few years. Rabbit and company were devastatingly efficient weapons in Medal of Honor; but they were motivated by more than just a rising body count. It was the first game to make me appreciate what our armed forces do on a regular basis for us, and I personally look forward to seeing what Danger Close has in store in the next game. As always, we’ll keep you posted on more news as it comes our way.
