EA Takes Out Medal Of Honor From Rotation, Replaces It With Battlefront, Titanfall

As much as we moan and whine, fact is that franchises rule the gaming world. After all, every year there seems to be another Call of Duty, another Assassin’s Creed, another Madden, and those games sell like hotcakes. One of EA’s big franchises, Medal of Honor, won’t be getting that treatment anymore however due to its poor performance in the market.

Instead, to take off some of the pressure on EA during the years that a new Battlefield isn’t be released, EA will instead be putting in new Titanfall games, as well as new Battlefront games. EA boss Frank Gibeau had this to say: “The shooter rotation we think about now is Battlefield, Titanfall and Battlefront, and so we like those three brands going forward. We’re working out how we’re going to line that up because that’s what you’ll see from us. With regards to Medal of Honor, you try things in entertainment and if they don’t work you try something else. From our perspective, Battlefield 3 and Battlefield Premium continues to grow.”

Fresh blood is never a bad thing, really, though the fact that they’re replacing one shooter with another tells me that the blood isn’t exactly that fresh to begin with. At least one of the IPs taking over forMedal of Honor is brand new, and the other one is a sequel to a beloved franchise from years ago. We’ll just see how well they do here in the next few years.
