EA Wants 'Medal of Honor' and 'Battlefield' to be Two Different Experiences


According to EA's Frank Gibeau, the company wants two different experiences when playing Medal of Honor and their Battlefield franchise.

Speaking with GameInformer recently, Gibeau stated;
“We are very careful that Battlefield and Medal of Honor stay differentiated."

“With Medal of Honor we tried to embrace that the game is real. The multiplayer is different than Battlefield.”
Gibeau stated that there are good and bad things resulting from having two different shooters unlike Activision's Call of Duty yearly franchise.
“There is an inefficiency to having two different brands coming out alternating like that, there is some upside. You don’t have the annualized, sequel fatigue,” he said.

“We’re trying to use a sequencing strategy to keep it as fresh and different as possible. The trick is figuring out how to grow both of them together.”
Medal of Honor: Warfighter is the next EA shooter due out in October for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
