EA: Medal of Honor 'a franchise now, once again'

Is that a sequel we hear around the corner?

Last month's Medal of Honor reboot "is absolutely [a] clear success", according to EA CEO John Riccitiello.

And that means follow-up games. "... Consumer feedback has been strong to suggest that we've got a franchise now, once again, that we could successfully and effectively sequel in the future," he said.


EA said previously that Medal of Honor needed to shift three million copies if it was to get a sequel. Last night, the company announced it had sold two million copies in its first two weeks, despite some mixed reviews.

"The game has exceeded our plan and expectations sell-through and sell-in, and those expectations were they went up as they went from planned to forecast and as we updated our forecast through for the year," Riccitiello said.

"So in every possible gate of opportunity to increase the forecast we did, and then we exceeded those forecast based on strong selling numbers. So it is absolutely clear success as a business for us."
