    Development on the next Medal of Honor game is already underway at Danger Close, it has been revealed.

    Executive producer Greg Goodrich has written a blog post for the official Medal of Honor blog entitled "In case you were wondering..." It leads straight off with the news: "Yes, Danger Close is currently working on the next Medal of Honor." He notes that the recent reboot to the series has sold more than 5 million copies and thanks fans for supporting it.

    A sequel to Medal of Honor was all but confirmed last month after a Danger Close job listing stated that it was at work on an "unannounced AAA first person shooter title." There were other clues in the listing and EA has made it abundantly clear that it wants to beat Call of Duty, so it didn't take much of a leap to come to that conclusion.

    Battlefield maker DICE handled development of the multiplayer aspect of MoH; it remains to be seen if a similar arrangement will be in place for the sequel.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Seriously, the first MoH was just bad. A title completely banking off the CoD craze and one that didn't offer anything to play over either CoD or BFBC. It somehow sold like over a million copies but then everyone realized it sucks. It never cracked the Top 20 for Xbox Live and it's pretty much off the radar now, which is pretty bad for a mediocre game based really on nothing more than singleplayer.

    I just hope this bombs to prove that not every game can keep banking off the CoD craze.

    Despite the fact the first MoH game was released in 1999, years before the first call of duty game and almost 10 years before Bad Company?

    There's no need to put your opinion in the news title. That's just biased.

    Maybe in a blog?

    It's called "Your input here" for a reason.

    I stand by my earlier assessment http://gbatemp.net/t259014-medal-of-honor-...t&p=3187660 - a competent FPS title, no earth shattering but then again such games are few and far between.

    Given I am suffering a bit from FPS fatigue and there being some very interesting games already out or coming up this year on the FPS front not to mention whatever Russia and eastern Europe decide to bring out (given what has come out of that part of the world these last couple of years) they have a lot to do but I will probably give it a spin none the less. Indeed I am probably more interested in this than the next COD or battlefield title but that does not say much.

    I guess the problem is that we don't need another FPS and the first MoH (again, talking about the rebooted series) wasn't that great. I was kinda in your position with strategy and SRPGs in general. It felt like the market was flooded with them and I really lost interest. Until recently, I didn't play a strategy/SRPG game since Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (random fact, also the last DS game I bought). Nowadays I'm really digging into them though. I guess the difference is that this wave of FPS games, especially those based on this "super realistic" CoD type play, aren't really working since these games offer like a 5-6 hour single player experience and then the only real drive for it is multiplayer. And when people realize "Why would I play Game X if Game Y is already there/better/the same?", tons of games drop off the face of the earth for multiplayer and just gather dust.

    The original game still sold over a million copies. I guess they figure that people will buy a sequel although most people I know who bought it found it highly disappointing and haven't played it for more than a day of two.

    Boy, I sure am tired of first person shooters. Heard recently a new Battlefield game is being made. I guess that isn't too bad because it was a decent game and now this. Trying to copy the success of Call of Duty. Well thank god for Bulletstorm, putting the fun back into games like this and trying to do something different.

    Medal of Honor was fun.

    IMO, it was better than Call of Duty 3. (for the wii anyway)

    But it looks like they're just trying to get some glory from the online fps shit.]

    MoH was pretty good. I liked it for how it played, but the terrible implementations and glitches completely fucked it up.

    No really, get the fuck out.



    I liked the first MoH game. It was nice and a solid WW2 shooter. One of the only FPS I found enjoyable.
    I haven't played any past the PS2 era, but if they're anything alike, this will be amazing.

    the only one i have played from MoH is frontline and i loved it more than any other CoD game due to its simplicity...
    guild is not a fps hater cuz he said he liked mass effect 2 best for last year, maybe he's mood was not good when playing the game but still i have not heard any MoH being bad (maybe not tht good but never bad)
    hey its everyone's opinion
    PS- No wonder this thread has many posts

    I'm talking about the first game of the reboot series. MoH '10, I guess we'll call it.
