EA has said that there is space for both Medal of Honor and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 in its publishing stable. In an interview with IncGamers, EA’s Sean Decker stressed the games are sufficiently different to avoid competing with each other.“I think there’s enough separation between Medal of Honor and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, both in time and in tone,” he told IncGamers.“Having worked on both franchises and seen and worked with both teams, they have different ideas of first-person shooters, especially in the tone and how you play, and also the pacing of the game.“Medal of Honor is really more of a… I’d put it as a CNN type of feel. It’s much more, again, about authenticity, and about today. Bad Company and the Battlefield franchise has never really tried to take itself too seriously, and has built itself – Bad Company especially – around a completely fictionalised world. At the same time, it tries to be hard-edge when it comes to the actual combat in the game.”Decker went on to suggest that there will be room for both franchises in the EA stable in future.“I think there’s some good separation between the two,” he said.“A lot of different companies out there have multiple shooters and can find some good space for them, and I think EA will as well.”In other Medal of Honor news, find out why the game won’t be aand stay tuned for the full developer interview.
