EA admits Medal Of Honor was poorly executed but the series will return

Creative director blames lack of strong leadership in the failure of MoH: Warfighter

EA has confessed that the Medal Of Honor revival and especially last October's Medal Of Honor: Warfighter was poorly executed.

Richard Hilleman, creative director at EA gave a very frank assessment of Medal Of Honor's failings in a recent interview.

He explained, "We don't think its a genre problem. It's an execution problem. We don't think Medal of Honor's performance speaks to any particular bias in that space against modern settings or World War II or any of that. It's much more that we had some things we should've done better. I think a key part of this is having the right amount of high-quality production talent. And we didn't have the quality of leadership we needed to make [Medal of Honor] great. We just have to get the leadership aligned. "

"We're blessed to have more titles than we can do well today," he added referring to MOH's better-looking more successful brother Battlefield. "That's a good problem, frankly. In the long term, we have to make sure we don't kill those products by trying to do them when we can't do them well. What we think right now is that, for the next couple years, we can just have one great thing in that space. So we're choosing for it to be Battlefield. "

Thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
