Medal of Honor and Need for Speed Sequels Outed by GAME

While the insert bunged into copies of Battlefield 3 pretty much confirmed that a Medal of Honor sequel is indeed on the way, and news of a new Need for Speed is hardly surprising, GAME has been tweeting about both unconfirmed games today anyway, following a presentation from EA.
The offending tweets have since been removed, but GAME was tweeting about its trip to see EA before blabbing about the unannounced titles in question. "This morning we're at an EA presentation, where we hope to see some pretty cool games! Don't know what we can say yet but stay tuned!"
Chances are GAME wasn't supposed to say anything - hence why the tweets have been taken down - but say something the UK retailer did. "EA presentation was great. Had mentions of a new Medal of Honour [sic] and Need for Speed 13! EA have an exciting year ahead."
With Black Box developing the decidedly weak Need for Speed: The Run, hopefully this year should see Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit developer Criterion taking the reins once again, unless the studio is working on another open-world Burnout, which is certainly a possibility. And Medal of Honor 2 would no doubt plug the FPS void left by Battlefield this year, pitting it against CoD in the shooter stakes.
