EA Prepping New Medal Of Honor
It's a franchise that has seen better days, but with each new installment, there's fresh hope.
As PlayStation Lifestyle pointed out, former Factor 5 lead environmental artist Jericho Green is currently working on something interesting for EA: a new Medal of Honor! You can see the evidence at Green's LinkedIn page; just scroll down to find the information that he is the environment artist for EA for the new title, which means we may see an unveiling of some sort at E3. Medal of Honor: Airborne was a mediocre FPS that had plenty of potential but failed to deliver in a variety of areas; perhaps now that EA has had extra time to become familiar with the PS3 and 360, they'll give us something more worthy of our attention. We still remember the early days of this series, which included downright stellar entries like Medal of Honor: Frontline and Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. Since then, we've been waiting and hoping for a rejuvenation of sorts, and perhaps this new MoH effort will represent that long-awaited boost. Of course, the competition in this genre is stiffer than ever, but EA has produced some pretty great stuff over the past year.
We'll be on the lookout for any information concerning this Medal of Honor game; as soon as we find any, we'll be sure to let you know.
