EA’s Los Angeles studio has revealed it has tried to steer clear of politics in the development of Medal of Honor. In an interview with IncGamers, EA LA’s Sean Decker explained that, like the acclaimed film The Hurt Locker, the Afghanistan-set Medal of Honor will tell the story of the soldiers on the ground.“I think, again, it was trying to stay out of all the politics,” he said.“There’s been a lot of really good movies – the Gotham Awards just came out and Hurt Locker was the top one. It has nothing to do with the war in Iraq and why it started, or anything else – it’s just about the men on the ground, what they go through on a day-to-day basis, and their emotions.”He went on to say that the game will not address the reasons behind the conflict as “that’s not the story we’re trying to tell.”
“It’s not going to be a big propaganda piece where we wave the flag, or anything like that. It’s literally about the people that’re on the ground,” he added.
The highly-anticipated shooter reboot is set for release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in autumn this year. Check out some recently-releasedand stay tuned for the full interview with Decker.
