The 2010 Medal of Honor reboot and 2012 Medal of Honor: Warfighter were pretty crappy modern warfare first person shooters in a sea of modern warfare first person shooters. Now Electronic Arts has decided to give Danger Close, the developer specifically tasked with making Medal of Honor games and used to be EA Los Angeles, the boot.
“Danger Close as it was doesn’t exist anymore,” stated Söderlund, the executive VP of EA Games.
Danger Close should have known how dangerously close to being closed. EA had opened a Los Angeles branch for the Battlefield modern warfare first person shooter franchise earlier in May. There surely couldn’t have been room for two EA first person shooter developers in LA.
Will this corporate reshuffling help EA get back into favor with its gamers? Only if they produce better games with better customer service practices.
