Medal of Honor
EA LA Developing New Frostbite 2 Engine Shooter
Written By
View author's profile

According to a new job listing posted on, the company is looking for a senior multiplayer designer for an unannounced third-person shooter "with a strong multiplayer focus". What's more, it'll utilise the Frostbite 2 Engine, which is also being used for Battlefield 3.

EA LA's last project was Medal of Honor, so whether it's another instalment in that particular series is unknown, but seems unlikely given that it's a third-person shooter EA is recruiting for.

It's possible that EA LA might be getting to work on a new shooter IP rather than a sequel to an existing franchise, but no doubt there'll be an official announcement of some description in the near future. So, you know the score... Watch this space and all that.

Nice to hear that they are not just resting on their existing IPs. Many companies rely on that strategy *cough* Activision *cough cough*.

With the Frostbite 2.0 engine and a game that is focused on multiplayer, it should be epic!!!

I agree with #7 its definately army of two 3. Strong multiplayer was similar announcement to the 1st & its 3rd say 90% chance. Medal of honour2 was already announced, they said after the 1st million copies sold

@13 Last time I checked, Respawn Entertainment and EA LA (Danger Close Games) were not the same studio. Plus, third person is not first person.

@ 22. I would jizz.

My bet is another shooter where Americans fight Russians, and of course the Americans are good guys and Russians bad. Seems to be the most popular scenario out there.

Food for thought... EA is currently partnered with LucasArts/Bioware to release SW: The Old Republic, perhaps they are preparing Star Wars: Battlefront 3?

Probably not, but a nerd can dream.

What I'd like to see is a high quality mech war game using the destructible engine of frostbite 2.
