Medal of Honor
EA LA Developing New Frostbite 2 Engine Shooter
Written Wednesday, March 23, 2011 By Richard Walker

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.

Hopefully there will be no bugs that doesn't allow certain trophies to be obtained without deleting game data like in Army of Two.

Medal of Honor is an FPS, so that shouldn't be it. An idea that comes to mind would be multiplayer for Mercs Inc, but I wouldn't qualify that as a game for "stong multiplayer focus." So, my money's on a new IP.

I thought it was already known that they were making another medal of honor. Great game, I hope so.

A third person game would be sweet with the frostbite engine :)

EA LA is Danger Close. I would accept a new army of two or a new title all together. I really enjoyed MOH's single player a lot more than DICE'S bland thrown together mp. I'd like to see what danger close can do mp wise.

@15 Nice call but I don't believe that for two reasons. One, they're unleashing a new F2P game to run alongside Battlefield Heroes. I think its just called Battlefield. Two, I don't think they'd throw a whole studio on that project with the frostbite 2 engine.

Lets hope for something sadistically hard since SOCOM ain't coming back anytime soon.

DICE are brillant developers. yes they fucked up MoH Multiplayer but they always do a great job on the battlefield series.

I was excited at first...until the 3rd person thing. I thought we might see a sequel to "Black."
