TGV: E3 2011 Predictions: Respawn and EA are making a Medal of Honor game

Derek at The Gaming Vault throws in his two cents about EA, Respawn, and a certain franchise that's been mistreated for almost a decade (E3, EA, Industry, Medal of Honor, PC, PS3, Respawn Entertainment, Xbox 360)

Update For the record I'm not making a claim, I'm making a prediction. Predictions are always 50/50 in terms coming true or not. Just ask Michael Pachter. I could be wrong, but I really don't care if I am. That's our job when E3 comes around, to think and predict what crazy stuff is going to happen. These aren't meant to be taken seriously, they're meant to bring another side of thinking to the table.

I'd like to see a Medal of Honor game destroy Call of Duty, but I'm way more excited for Battlefield 3.

I'm more excited for everything than MW3

medal of honor hasn't destroyed anything but itself like ever

I love Medal of Honor but I think they should rest the franchise for about 2 to 3 years - COD is already the madden of shooters and dont want MOH to follow.

Seems about right, I don't think EA would bet on a new IP.
Uncharted3Goty  +   1153d ago
it would be good having the team who made Call of duty 4 ( since they are infity ward Employes) would be Right idea.

Dear developers,

Please stop with the war simulations and look into your imagination. It would be a nice change of pace.

Dear developers,

Why not do both? There are plenty of devs out there to spread the love.

There is nothing wrong with giving people more of what they want. I'm all for original, new IP's but I'd be fibbing if said I don't enjoy my sequels. As long as they are good games, who cares?

You don't need to reinvent the wheel everytime you decide to make a game.
Pintheshadows  +   1153d ago
I was being very specific towards the games that are vying for a piece of COD pie. Homefront, MOH etc.

I don't mind sequels either but i'm sure devs could think of something better to do.
mendicant  +   1153d ago
Fair enough. I just don't see the harm in making games that aren't innovative. If there is an audience for "more of the same" with a few tweeks here and there, why not?

Both can be accomplished. There are plenty of devs out there to support both needs.

that would be sweet loved the story of the first one.....but i don't think they would announce it just yet when they need full spped on battlefield.....i suppose they could announce the beta coming with battlefield and give the official trailer at GOTY awards
mendicant  +   1153d ago
I absolutely love this series, especially the last title. I really hope they are making another one.
Sigh  +   1153d ago
Nice. I said this in the beginning before Medal of Honor came out, they should've used Respawn Entertainment to work on it instead of Danger Close/DICE. Dice should've been working solely on Battlefield 3 instead of co-working with another project. Danger Close + Respawn should've been from the very beginning but I'm glad to hear they're working together now. It's the only way to wanna compete against COD with EA's own version. Battlefield is a competitor to COD but it's just too different.

Respawn Entertainment was still too busy setting up shop at EA to work on Medal of Honor. As a matter of fact, I think they're still looking to hire more people for their studio as they don't have everything they need just yet.

Who's better to kill COD then those that created it
JLeVRT  +   1153d ago
I like the way you think, my friend
PhantomT1412  +   1153d ago
Didn't they say Respawn won't influence the other studios? One of the reasons IW and Activision argued is because they wanted to stop making Modern Warfare games (at least pause it). Now that they're free, I doubt they would wanna do a similar thing.

Wrong! Danger Close has already confirmed they are working on a sequel to Medal of Honor. Respawn is not an EA studio, they are an independent and EA is their publisher similar to how EA also published Bulletstorm for Epic and Crysis 2 for Crytek.

I predict Respawn's first game will be new IP but is probably still a ways away from being announced.
Applederp  +   1153d ago
Not all predictions turn out to be true. It's an opinion piece after all. Since EA has made MoH they're counter to Call of Duty, why not put some former CoD dudes on it? Danger Close does the single player and Respawn does Multiplayer. Makes sense.

Then again, the whole lawsuit between the two head guys and Activision might delay anything by Respawn for a while.
MRHARDON  +   1153d ago
This artical is useless and it proves people cant research before making claims like this.

Respawn studios is creating a new IP, not a sequal to an franchies already created, a NEW IP...

@BlairBear0410 nope! Original IP in the works.

There twitter is right here.
Applederp  +   1153d ago
I forgot to mention this in the article, but here's a fun fact: When Infinity Ward started, it was largely made up by developers from 2015 Inc., the studio that made Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault. I don't know firsthand, but I'd assume some of those guys went back to Respawn. I could be wrong, though.

If this turns out to be true, it would be quite ironic.
PhantomT1412  +   1153d ago
It's true indeed. The core IW team was those who developed Medal of Honor AA. If you've played many (IW) COD games, you might know some of their names because they name their (random) soldiers after the developers (West, Zampella, Fukuda, Rieke, Alderman and so on). And it's the same guys who went out to Respawn. SO you can consider the current Infinity Ward is only the shadow of its former self...

But it has already been confirmed Respawn is developing a new IP so it's not much of a predition anymore...

I still wouldn't ignore the possibility of Respawn doing the multiplayer portion of another MoH game in the future. They have a vast amount of experience to do it.

But who knows? Maybe this new IP will take too much of their time to do that. Maybe not. Only time will tell. I'd sure love to see the multiplayer of MoH done by guys who did it right in Allied Assault.
Saryk  +   1153d ago
I bought the new MOH a month ago and I love it, I like the real multiplayer better than Black Ops. The bots in Black Ops and the Zombie mode is what sets it apart.

"...I guess that’s what happens when you tell the Battlefield guys to dumb down their type of game to Call of Duty-levels." I love it!
