Some time ago, Danger Close Games, developers of Medal of Honor, posted a job listing on their web page, saying they needed a lead game engineer and a weapons an vehicles artist for and “unannounced AAA first person shooter title.” We, along with almost everyone else, suspected it’s Medal of Honor 2.
Medal of Honor executive producer Greg Goodrich confirmed that the studio is working on Medal of Honor 2 following successful sales (5 million copies sold) of the first game. He posted an update on the Medal of Honor Blog.
Here’s the update:
“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.”
Woot! Stay tuned for more info.
