Nordic Games didn't announce any plans for a sequel to the 2004 Xbox and PC game. But the company pointed out that the title has a rich history.

“With said IP, our shooter portfolio gets enriched with a real classic," Nordic Games executive Reinhard Pollice said in a statement. “It feels great to have a piece of FPS-history under our umbrella. At 2015 Games, a lot of talented people, including the founders of Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment amongst others, shaped the first person shooter genre with their games."

Before Men of Valor, 2015 Games worked on Medal of Honor: Allied Assault

Men of Valor (see GameSpot's review) puts players into the boots of new recruit Dean Shepard as he and his Marine squadmates battle through Southeast Asia in the 1960s during the Vietnam War.
