Some Tier 1 missions too personal for Medal of Honor: Warfighter

Monday, 12th March 2012 02:16 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Although Medal of Honor: Warfighter is being developed in close consultation with real Tier 1 Operators, Danger Cloise isn’t touching on some of the group’s most well-known missions.

Official Xbox Magazine, as reported by GamersThirst, asked executive producer Greg Goodrich whether the game will include the capture of Osama Bin Laden, the most high profile Nave SEALs operation in recent years.

“That’s not our story to tell,” he said. “That’s family business to the Tier 1 Operators.”

Goodrich seemed to suggest that Danger Close has had to do a bit of trial and error in exploring what content sits well with their military advisors.

“It’s been an interesting exercise learning what’s okay and what’s not okay [to portray in the game],” he said.

One a semantically-related note, one of the Operators working on the project praised the game for its depiction of family-oriented soldiers.

Warfighter is due for release in October, on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Thanks, monu-mental!

    Killing No. 1 is great and everything, but aside from the flying and the historical aspect, it wasn’t exactly a major operation.

    I don’t think anyone does what those guys do without every single mission being quite personal.

    Too personal.. hmm.. the only time its too personal to me would be when someone was KIA or severely WIA.. Not sure whats so personal about killing the most wanted man in history.. other than it would be a terribly boring mission from a video game stand point… 2 guys with AKs get whacked.. fly out.. lol

    And yes, I have combat deployments under my belt before any of the arm chair generals here try to call me out. I would never want to relive or see in a video game the deaths of my buddies that i lost played out in a game.

    You don’t describe military action as “family business”. He probably means too politictly charged for a video game with official army backing. Wich is fair enough, I doubt it’s what people are looking for in that type of game anyway.
    Just don’t describe it in such silly terms.
