Latest Medal of Honor deploying late August?

E-tailer gives date for EA's latest advance on the WWII shooter genre

EA's Medal of Honor: Airborne has suffered a few delays but eyes are now turning to late August 2007 for its release.

E-tailer GameStop is saying the WWII first-person shooter will release in North America on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on August 28.

EA's UK arm has not yet responded to queries on this date or indeed release date for the title on these shores, but if the GameStop listing is accurate then it's possible we'll get Medal of Honor: Airborne on August 31.

EA's Medal of Honor series has been trumped by Call of Duty of course, but Airborne could be the game that finds it reclaiming its throne. Much is being made of the sandbox-style gameplay in the title, a key feature the ability to parachute into the action anywhere in a level.
