Medal of Honor needs to sell 3 million for a possible sequel

EA’s said that Medal of Honor needs to sell 3 million units for a sequel to be possible.

Executive producer Greg Goodrich told the New York Times that if it doesn’t reach the target, “I’m not going to be able to do another one.”

It’s also revealed in the NYT piece that the game was once known as Medal of Honor: Anaconda before the subtitle was dropped.

The original pitch was based on a failed operation known as Anaconda. It was dropped by EA as the company felt it would have “hit a little too close to home,” adding it would have “put a sour taste in our brothers’ mouths.”

The piece also quotes a designer from the game saying how EA wants the player to be feel like they were in Afghanistan, and not in a movie like Modern Warfare.

Medal of Honor launches on October 15 for PS3, 360 and PC.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    It has to do 3 million? In what time frame? A multiplat like this can do 3 million but the real question is how long will it take to get there.

    How is CoD 360 exclusive? Black Ops has proper PC support back.

    sales were good for bc2 i remember. i think 3m is possible for moh, if reviews are good/ game is good…i hope so…need something fresh on the military shooter front -bc2 is a great great game but – vietnam pack takes far too long dice….far too long.

    COD black ops its not kinda exclusive, just because they have the DLC first dont mean its Kinda Exclusive, its only DLC. I will still buy that game for PS3 regardless. Only think about COD games is that they OVERCHARGE people for maps. Back in the days DLC maps use to be FREE on PC. Later with consoles it was very cheap to buy DLC, around 5 bucks, 15 is way too much.

    Back to MOH, I think they will sell about 5 million units judging from Bad Company 2. Many people still enjoy single player campaigns and I bet MOH will deliver more then Black Ops. MW2 single player was a joke.

    The reception we see, the time frame (it does come out before Black Ops), and controversy, and seeing as Bad Company 2 did pretty well, (5 million, was it?), I think this one should break 3 million easily.

    My only question is in what amount to time do they want it in? It’s possible, but they didn’t say how fast they wanted it.

    I think it has a good shot. The gameplay looks pretty tight. The chopper sections look awful, but hopefully that’s just one level.

    Judging from Steam there aren’t that many BC2 users left on PC, and while MW2 is still popular, people are going to want to try different things.

    It’s gonna come down to the quality of the singleplayer I think. Danger Close haven’t shown a lot of that, and that’s always a little suspicious.

    If it’s decent, I’ll probably pick it up somewhere between Black Ops and Brink.
