Danger Close’s Medal of Honor was released to very polarizing reivews last year. Some loved it for it’s authenticity while others hated it as a pale imitation of other modern first person shooters. But even with the mixed reviews, the game was a huge blockbuster, ultimately selling over five million copies on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
So, naturally, EA is planning a sequel. Executive Producer Greg Goodrich confirmed the development of Medal of Honor 2 on the game’s official blog and thanked the community for their reaction to the game’s storyline:
As you all know, our goal was to tell the story of today’s soldier and to do so with the utmost respect and reverence. We’ve received many letters, emails and messages from active servicemen and women from around the world, along with veterans and their families, with appreciation for our recent depiction of their community. I can’t tell you how important this is to everyone here at Danger Close Games. You are the heartbeat of this team and this franchise and we are privileged and honored to tell your story. Medal of Honor has always been fueled by the passion of our fans and the commitment and sacrifice shown by the men and women of our armed services.
No other details were revealed, but Goodrich did say “We can’t wait to tell you more about it.”
