Medal of Honor Franchise could be irrelevant, says analyst Pachter

"It may be too late for the Medal of Honor brand."

Posted By | On 01st, Nov. 2012

Medal of Honor: Warfighter, the latest game in the Medal of Honor franchise has not only sold poorly (according to EA) but is also a massive critical failure. For a game that was supposed to do well, considering it was running on Frostbite 2, it didn’t exactly stand apart from the crowd.

Michael Pachter, analyst from Wedbush Morgan says that, the franchise is almost dead because of the poor sales, and EA won’t bother with it again.

“The last iteration of Medal of Honor received an average Metacritic score of 75 in 2010 (after its predecessor received an average score of 73 in 2007), and EA management committed to improving quality with this year’s release,” he said.

“Instead, with an average score of only 50, the game is likely to fall short of revenue expectations by $100 million or more. Perhaps more importantly, the poor performance of Medal of Honor makes it highly unlikely that EA can deliver significant digital revenues from DLC subscriptions next year, and sets the company up for a disappointing comparison to the $204 million in digital revenues it expects from Battlefield this year.

“It may be too late for the Medal of Honor brand, as a score as low as this one received may be fatal.”

Will EA make another Medal of Honor game? Or will the Battlefield: Bad Company franchise be Resurrected? Let us know.
