Medal of Honor: Warfighter Summary
EA has confirmed, through the vocal box of executive Patrick Soderlund, that Medal of Honor revival developer Danger Close has had the letter 'd' added for 'Danger Closed'. The studio is no more. Instead the bulk of the workforce has been conscripted for the new DICE LA studio, which is currently tasked with supporting DICE's Stockholm talent with various projects.
Electronic Arts has transferred members of the Medal of Honor developer Danger Close to DICE LA, the Los Angeles division of the Battlefield studio, according to reports.
Electronic Arts has confirmed that it laid off employees from both its Los Angeles and Montreal studios, including some in "smaller locations".
Medal of Honor: Warfighter was a dismal failure on both a critical and popular level, and Electronic Arts chief creative officier Richard Hilleman blames the failure as an "execution problem".
Peter Moore has told investors that they'll be pulling back from Medal of Honor after its poor reception among critics and gamers. They blame the slowdown in the sector and Warfighter's lack of appeal. The latest entry was an "obvious miss," said Moore, but said it was a "solid" game that just "did not resonate with consumers." EA has a plan to bring "year-over-year continuity" to shooters.
