Medal of Honor not a Propaganda Title, Not Competing with Battlefield

Mohh

EALA is working on the reboot of the Medal of Honor series at the moment, called Medal of Honor. This isn't to be confused with the first game from 1999, seeing as this isn’t set in WW II, but in the Middle East… in Afghanistan.

As one can imagine, this is slightly dodgy to say the least, seeing as Six Days in Fallujah was pretty much shut down for failure to secure a publisher because of the content.

EA is avoiding politics, and insists that this isn’t some sort of title that’s meant for recruitment or to focus on the the causes of the war, but the people, the soldier fighting there.

Sean Decker:

“I think, again, it was trying to stay out of all the politics. There's been a lot of really good movies – the Gotham Awards just came out and Hurt Locker was the top one. It has nothing to do with the war in Iraq and why it started, or anything else – it's just about the men on the ground, what they go through on a day-to-day basis, and their emotions."

“It's not going to be a big propaganda piece where we wave the flag, or anything like that. It's literally about the people that are on the ground.”

                    Medal of Honor                             Battlefield: Bad Company 2

In another story, Medal of Honor and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 are not competing in any way [1]. They share the same publisher in EA, and BC 2’s developers, DICE, are even working on Medal of Honor’s multiplayer, using their own Frostbite engine instead of the Unreal Engine 3 like the singleplayer.

Medal of Honor should be out in 2010, more or less in Q3, July to September somewhere, and it will be available on the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
