Doug Creutz of Crown and Company believes EA isn't expected to meet their FY13 forecast due to Medal of Honor: Warfighter's release.
He indicates the game is "likely to be a major disappointment" when considering sales.
"Based on our read of pre-release tracking data, we think the game might struggle to sell through 2MM units worldwide," he said.
"With only a week before a murderer’s row of AAA titles begins to come out (Assassin’s Creed III on October 30; Halo 4 on November 6; Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on November 13), we think Medal of Honor: Warfighter has a very short window to capture sales."
Creutz also suggested a lack of reviews isn't going to help matters.
"A dearth of reviews is unlikely to help. The decision to make early review copies unavailable does not suggest to us that the company has a high degree of confidence in the quality of the game."
