Medal of Honor sells 1.5 million in five days

EA "thrilled to see that fans worldwide have embraced it"

Analysts have called Medal of Honor review scores "a black eye for EA", but it's EA that's doing the slapping. Its war series revival has sold 1.5 million copies in just five days.

That's according to official GfK-ChartTrack data, which recorded the milestone five days after the game's US launch, and just two days after it arrived in Europe and Asia.

"Medal of Honor is one of EA's most storied franchises and we're thrilled to see that fans worldwide have embraced it," said EA boss Frank Gibeau.

EA is celebrating the game's achievement with a free DLC pack that adds a new 'Clean Sweep' mode and two new maps to the game's multiplayer offerings. Yes, FREE! It's coming on November 2 - more info on that here.
