"We Should Have Done Better" With Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Says EA Exec

A top-ranking EA executive has admitted that Medal of Honor: Warfighter should have been better, saying that the title lacked quality leadership.

Warfighter hit in October last year, to generally poor reviews and a lackluster commercial reception. Our review called it “average in almost every department” and gave it 55.

Rich Hilleman, EA’s Chief Creative Director, said that the issue with Warfighter was not related to the over-saturated FPS genre, or its similarities to Call of Duty. Instead it was to do with execution.

"We don't think its a genre problem," said Hilleman. "It was an execution problem. We don't think Medal of Honor's performance speaks to any particular bias in that space against modern settings, World War II, or any of that. It's much more that we had some things we should've done better."

Hilleman elaborated by suggesting that Warfighter developer Danger Close needs to strengthen its team.

"I think a key part of this is having the right amount of high-quality production talent," he said. "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."

Late last month EA revealed that it has shelved the Medal of Honor series until further notice.
