An Electronic Arts meeting that was supposed to remain under wraps has reportedly been blown wide open. According to a tweet from United Kingdom retailer GAME (via Eurogamer), EA is preparing a Medal of Honor sequel and Need for Speed 13 for 2012.
A since-removed tweet from the retailer reportedly read, "EA presentation was great. Had mentions of a new Medal of Honor and Need for Speed 13! EA have an exciting year ahead."
Last February, Medal of Honor producer Greg Goodrich confirmed that a sequel to the series' 2010 revamp was in development, but it did not provide a projected release window. The first game has shipped over 5 million units globally.
As for whether or not a 2012 release is likely for a Medal of Honor sequel, EA CEO John Riccitiello indicated his enthusiasm for the shooter genre last year, saying, "I want market leadership in the first-person shooter business."
Switching to the other 2012-rumored game, today's mention of Need for Speed 13 is the first news of a fresh entry in EA's long-standing racing series. However, the Need for Speed series has been annualized since 2002, making a new game in 2012 seem likely.
An EA representative told GameSpot, "We don't comment on rumors."
