Resident Evil dev was making Medal of Honor for PS Vita - Report

Concept art from Slant Six Games developer shows unannounced portable entry in first-person shooter series.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City developer Slant Six Games was working on a Medal of Honor game for the PlayStation Vita, according to concept art spotted by Superannuation.

A former Slant Six Games developer includes concept art for the untitled and unannounced Medal of Honor game in his online portfolio. According to his LinkedIn page, he worked at the Vancouver studio from 2006 through 2009.

Neither Slant Six Games nor Electronic Arts were available to comment at press time.

The original Medal of Honor reboot launched in 2010 and was followed by 2012's Medal of Honor: Warfighter. EA put the series on hiatus in January after Medal of Honor: Warfighter failed to meet sales expectations.

"We recognize and appreciate the value of the franchise," EA said at the time. "We're going to give Medal of Honor a rest while we plan its return. We haven't made any decision on how or when it will return."

Medal of Honor WAS a good series but had it's hiccups even in it's hayday. If the series is being awakened it must be different than the competition [other than sucking], personally I am sick of FPS, so maybe if devs actually thought outside of the box and take a gamble then maybe MOH can be back on the radar for good reasons. 

I sort of hate that Slanted Six is involved, after RE ORC being unfinished, buggy, no ending, bodies not being stack-able and endings that NES games can beat, if MOH does return it's already doomed for the bargain bend.

They must be satisfied without struggling between making a FPS/TPS-action and survial-horror game now.

Not sure if Slant Six really counts as a "resident evil dev".

@Sam_021 So they turned to Battlefield.  Hey, at least it wasn't like Activision with their Guitar Hero/Tony Hawk overkill.

@Vidpci Slant Six don't make FPS games. This would have been their first. They make 3rd person shooters.

I dunno, I'm looking forward to the next FPBP (First Person Boulder Puncher) version of Resident Evil starring Chris Redfield.  

I think the Resident Evil / Biohazard series could spring back at any time.  In fact, I would even say that the next real Resident Evil game could be only a few boulder punches away if Capcom plays its cards right.

BOULDER PUNCH!

@SimonSiThornton @Djmaster214 i have played medal of honor 2010 but not war fighther.the first mission of 2010 moh was to go to a Iraq village at night and kill people which was boring.

@johnaom @SimonSiThornton @Djmaster214 The point I was trying to make was that anyone who has played Warfighter would understand why the SAS are in it. The whole point in Warfighter was that it included several special forces from around the world.
