I wouldn't be surprised since MOH[modern warfare]failed twice

MOH has failed since it left PS1. You can't put all the blame on Danger close... they didn't invent the super Nazi's in Airborne.

Actually they did. Danger Close used to be known as EA Los Angeles, and before that they were known as Dreamworks Interactive. These are the guys that created the Medal of Honor series, and they've developed almost all MoH games, including Airborne.

"MOH failed since it left PS1"

I'm going to have to disagree with you on that i'm afraid.

The PS2 generation was packed with so many more genres that sold as well as shooters do now, but even for a platform that i wasn't big on the FPS with, MOH: Rising Sun, MOH: Frontlines and MOH: Allied Assault were some of my favourite games on the PS2.

The reasons MOH suffered this time round (PS3/360) are the same reasons that Call Of Duty SHOULD be suffering from right now, complete lack of originality and not a creative bone in it's body. But the COD brand is popular so it gets a free pass where the same problem crippled MOH to 2/10.

Well I feel like they stole my money with the last MOH. It was crap. I could not even still to date finish the SP campaign. Multiplayer we do not even mention.

EA really think this is a joke, don't they? I guarantee DICE will close if BF loses its charm, and any other decent studio they own for that matter. EA has exceeded Activision in terms of how low they've sunk.

You see, it's companies like this ruining, and destroying gaming. By sucking every cent from a franchise then demolishing that game's studio - it's ridiculous - and shouldn't be allowed to happen. I wonder how many hard-working, honest professionals have lost their favourite job due to EA's greed.

I'd love to know who makes these decisions? A group of "professionals?" Surely they don't see the decimation of art to be a good, honest day's work? It's completely EA's fault. Not many other publishers run down franchises to the point of failure; once successful franchises too. Thankyou EA. Your silence says it all. I hope to see your wretched corporation self destruct by annihilating all of your good studios. Leave, EA, you won't be missed. In fact, you'll do gaming a favour. No longer will other studios practically "rape" their games of content to sell it as DLC later on in the year. No longer will studios be stripped of what they once were to nab EA a quick dime.

This is becoming so serious that if EA don't change, they'll be the modern standard 1980's games publisher. They release trash too often with too little done to it. EA and Activision lead the gaming industry's notorious list of "joke" publishers; however, EA lead this elusive list for being so immorally wrong.

EA controls their studios like a disease, and cuts them off like a French guillotine.
Just die, EA.

this studio really have no talent. i can see it in their hbad games

Yodagamer1259d ago

They made great games as ea la and dreamwork's interactive. I don't know what happened to them as danger close, i don't know if it was the new setting or the new storylines, but something happened.

WUTCHUGUNNADO1259d ago

They may close down a lot of devs but it's not like they round up all their workers and shoot them so they can't use their talent elsewhere. Usually when a studio closes the talent gets sucked up before the doors lock.

zme-ul1259d ago

"refused to confirm" - it's closed all right

CanadianTurtle1259d ago

It's funny, when the game trailer first came out, all the gamers thought this was going to be the CoD killer and was going to be an outstanding title. It ended up being the most generic games of this gen. And the online is just terrible

porkChop1259d ago

MoH 2010 wasn't perfect but it had some promise. Warfighter was just pure trash. I don't think they should be closed though. The team has a lot of talent and they did well before changing their name to Danger Close. MoH failed because EA forced them to go after CoD. Just let them make a new IP with their own style, or let them go back to World War 2.
