Medal Of Honor 2 in development at Danger Close

EA LA's Greg Goodrich spills the beans

Medal Of Honor 2 is already in development at EA LA sub-studio Danger Close, following successful sales of the first game.

Danger Close chief and MoH executive producer Greg Goodrich revealed the news this evening.


Writing on the official EA Medal Of Honor blog, he said:

"Yes, Danger Close is currently working on the next Medal of Honor.

"Just recently, EA announced that the reboot of Medal of Honor was a big success with over 5 million copies sold. We wanted to take a moment to thank each of you for supporting us, our new studio and our storied franchise. We would especially like to thank all of the long time Medal of Honor fans out there who have stuck with us over the years.

"Since our launch last October, we've studied, listened and absorbed much of your feedback and are very excited to be marching forward on the next title. We can't wait to tell you more about it, so check back often to the website and the fan page on Facebook.

"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.

"It's going to be a fun ride for the Medal of Honor franchise. We are happy to have you aboard."

Medal Of Honor rode some notable controversy ahead of its release last year. Tory MP Liam Fox memorably called for the game to be banned, after mistakenly believing it allowed players to shoot at British soldiers.
