The Medal of Honor franchise is taking a break. Electronic Arts announced today that after Medal of Honor: Warfighter missed sales expectations, the series is being taken "out of rotation."
It is not clear what this means for developer Danger Close Games. An EA representative told GameSpot this afternoon that the studio has no announced projects.
"We haven’t announced a new project for the Medal of Honor development team, although there are other projects in development in Los Angeles and throughout our other EA studios," the company said. "Medal of Honor is a great franchise with a storied past. We recognize and appreciate the value of the franchise. 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."
In years past, Battlefield and Medal of Honor games have traded off releasing every year. EA did not say which franchise could replace Medal of Honor in EA's yearly shooter rotation, though the company said more details will be shared on the next financial call in 90 days. Battlefield 4 is currently in development, with a beta to arrive later this year.
Respawn Entertainment, led by former Call of Duty designers Jason West and Vince Zampella, is currently working on a big-budget unannounced game for EA.
