Danger Close Working On New Medal Of Honor

Writing on the Medal of Honor blog, executive producer of the recently-rebooted franchise Greg Goodrich has confirmed that the Danger Close team is indeed working on a new entry in the series.

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 looks like whatever the next entry of the series will entail, it will at least stick with the modern day setting of 2010’s title. The last game was announced in December for an October release, so if the follow-up is aiming for a 2011 launch we could see an announcement any time now, as Goodrich seems to be hinting at in his blog post. What’ll be interesting to see is how Medal of Honor is positioned by EA with relation to Battlefield 3, which is also supposed to be out before the year is out.

  1. I still wonder why DiCE were contracted to make the multiplayer?
    It was a rushed job, narrow maps, any idea id Danger Close are doing the multiplayer aswell?

    • I have to agree; I loved the single player component, but the online was frustrating and very limited.

      • Just how I felt as well. The single player campaign was great, but couldn’t get to grips with the MP. I didn’t realise they were contracted to different companies, kind of explains the obvious differences between the two modes.

  2. I wish they would use a newer engine, as I felt the Unreal Engine was used to its absolute limit in the first.

    I also felt the singleplayer was way too short for what it was. Just as I had got into it, the game finished and instead of feeling I wanted more I felt I bloody deserved more!

    So longer singleplayer, better engine and only then would I buy it.

    • Yes you took the words right out of my mouth and sort the multiplayer out, go your own way stop trying to be a COD.

      • thing is when people dont get cod experience they bitch and complain.take killzone for example.every review u see by jow public on youtube moaned their tiny faggit cod brains out about the fell and the controlls

    • Got another agree-er here, everyone should stop using the Unreal Engine now!

  3. I really enjoyed the multiplayer aspect of MoH. If they do this they need to make a longer single player campaign.

  4. I really enjoyed every second of medal of honor, the single player was very good indeed with a great ending :) and i really liked the multiplayer and ive put more hours inot MOH and black ops which is really good and i still havnt had enough of it yet :) cant wait for a second following on from the story and more of the same multiplayer :)

    • * “into MoH than Blops”

  5. I’m hoping they improve on the game, the new reboot was good but had flaws, looking forward to the sequel!

  6. How about a proper reboot of MoH: frontline
    And don’t forget MoH: European assualt and MoH: Vanguard on ps2, they were damn good games and the story was gripping.

  7. Well I for one loved the new moh. Firstly, great to hear they’re not going back to ww2, that setting has been far too much in games and I can’t stand shooting peashooters. Secondly, the sp campaign in moh was outstanding but buggy, so more of that with less bugs please. Thirdly, the mp component was nearly outstanding, but they really have to limit the number of snipers per team and use the same game engine for sp as mp. Do all that, you’ve got a corking game. Shame narrowminded reviewers will never score it as highly as a cod though.

    • A lot of truth in that last sentence mate .

    • Why does it matter if they use two different engines for the game?

      • The game just doesn’t feel standardised. You play sp and it plays totally different to when you play mp. It needs its own identity, and while its got 2 game modes that play totally differently its losing out on that identity.

  8. I’m actually expecting a 2012 release. Expecting EA to start rotating BF/MoH to combat the annual COD release. I personally didn’t bother with last MoH ‘cos I was still playing Bad Company 2.

  9. Loved the reboot, compelling campaign, really got to feel the emotion Danger Close conveyed. As already commented, hope they spend a bit more time on the multiplayer.

  10. “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.”

    How utterly and truly humbling that must have been. How incredible.
