Peter Moore has told investors that they'll be pulling back from Medal of Honor after its poor reception among critics and gamers. They blame the slowdown in the sector and Warfighter's lack of appeal.
The latest entry was an "obvious miss," said Moore, but said it was a "solid" game that just "did not resonate with consumers." EA has a plan to bring "year-over-year continuity" to shooters.
The reception among critics for Medal of Honor: Warfighter was mostly negative when it released back in October 2012, developed by Danger Close.
"We struggled with two challenges: the slowdown that impacted the entire sector and poor critical and commercial reception for Medal of Honor Warfighter," Moore stated. "Medal of Honor was an obvious miss. The game was solid, but the focus on combat authenticity did not resonate with consumers."
"Critics were polarized and gave the game scores which were, frankly, lower than it deserved," he added. "This one is behind us now. We are taking Medal of Honor out of the rotation, and have a plan to bring year-over-year continuity to our shooter offerings." The next major internal EA shooter will be a new Battlefield from DICE.
