edit Ned -altered thread title, rumour confirmed - Medal of Honor - ea.com - Medal of Honor - official site === Rumour: Medal of Honor goes modern? 10:26 am Monday 11 August, 2008 by Phil de Bruin Riding on the coattails of Activision's success with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Electronics Arts' long-time World War II FPS franchise looks to going contemporary as well, with the suggested title of Medal of Honor: Operation Anaconda. French game journalism site Jeuxvideo reported that EA had announced the game via a questionnaire sent out to fans. The game takes during Operation Anaconda which took place in the Afghanistan war theatre, throughout March 2002. The game reportedly promises over 60 customisable weapons. Planetmedalofhonor.com posted a rough translation of the quoted questionnaire excerpt included in the Jeuxvideo news post, available here. Whether this game, if it actually materialises (and if there's a PC version in the works), can recapture the multiplayer community that once upon a time lived and breathed Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, remains to be seen. EA's failure to properly optimise last year's MoH: Airborne for the PC, nor provide modding tools, doomed that game from building up a following. Despite their development team's efforts with subsequent patches, (including upping the maximum per-server player count, tweaking all existing maps, releasing a dedicated server set-up package, introducing a new play-mode and new maps), the damage had already been done. Although the game hasn't been formerly announced at this time, this writer wouldn't expect a release until Q3 2009 at the earliest.
