Medal of Honor: Warfighter
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.

I really hope Criterion doesn't touch the new NFS. Can't they see that the games before this NFS/Burnout crossover were so much better?

I mean, there was customization, and a plot, and little to none of this rubber band AI bullcrap. If I wanted to play a Burnout game, I'd go get Paradise, which I actually do want.

But NO! I am in the mood for some good old fashioned open world street racing. Not this super fast-paced crash-at-the-slightest-tap crap.

I admit, the Burnout games are quite fun. But right now I am in the mood for upgrading my car, customizing the hell out of it, and getting pissed off at random invisible walls that seemed to pop up everywhere in Most Wanted.(At least for me.)

Please EA, please keep them separated.

I think the new need for speed should be underground 3. They were the best nfs in my opinion. Plus we are yet to see that style of racer on ps3. Yes we had juiced 2 but that just sucked balls. The new medal of honor should be good too as its treyarch turn for cod this year n they always ruin it.

meh, after the last MoH they don't have to make new ones imo...
I'd really like critirion to go back to their burnout francise though, those games where a lot more fun then Hot Pursuit (which was a cool game too, but it wasn't really as much fun as I had with Burnout Revenge and Paradise)

@5 I don't know, Treayrach has gotten a big following from their zombies mode. Also, people are returning to Black Ops MP cause they got bored of MW3. The story is also (while very predictable) a good storyline. So no, Treyarch does not ruin the CoD series, unless you are talking about WaW, which did only average in sales, but it's MP is better than BO's. MW2's or MW3's multiplayer.

Enough ranting from me lolz. The MoH game might look fun. I heard a rumor it was going to be in space. Is this true?

I'm with #5. NFSU2 was the best in the series, it all went downhill when they added bloody police. If they created Underground 3 and stuck to modding and the free-roam environment I'd be very happy.

Looking forward to the MOH campaign, the first game was pretty good for a blast although the MP suffered from a lack of players.

MoH reboot is the only MoH game I haven't played to death, can't even bother to clean up the campaign trophies as it's just a boring game imo. Reinstalled it a while ago with the intention of platinuming it but I can't get myself to start up the game and actually do it

Still, I'd rather have devs trying new stuff, even though it fails sometimes & makes a horrible entry in an otherwise flawless series instead of just repeating the last game to stay safe. Same with music, those who try something new & fail have more respect from me than those that just recycle previously released material

No game gave me more chills in my spine than Medal of Honor, best story so far in a video game if you ask me.

I liked the Medal of Honor series reboot, hopefully that sequel that was teased is under development. As for Need for Speed, The Run was unimpressive, hopefully Criterion Games will once again be on the helm. If Black Box want sales, then another NFS: Most Wanted game would be the most interesting option, another open-world NFS.

Get rid of tier 1 mode as an online only game mode!
Making it online only is stupid, some people dont care about leaderboards here

Medal of Honor 2010 is one of the worst FPS games I have ever played.
Medal of Honor Frontline is one of the best FPS games I have ever played.
Something new please.

Let it be Need For Speed: Underground 3, number 2 is one of the best games ever made. Also, MOH was a decent game and had a pretty perfect trophy list, same again please.

@#6 Couldn't agree more, loved everything about last year's MOH except that bloody trophy. Most players have a one in a million chance of getting it naturally so have to set out to get it which detracts from the team based multiplayer and basic fun of the game.

@16, typical DICE online trophy... Their games are better than COD but they do need to learn from IW/activision or Guerilla G that stupid boosting online trophs breaks the natural gameplay?
