This isn’t too much of a shock, but still. UK retailer GAME has mentioned in a tweet this morning that a new Medal of Honor and Need for Speed will form EA’s 2012 release line-up. It said in a tweet since deleted: “EA presentation was great, had mentions of a new Medal of Honour and Need for Speed 13! EA have an exciting year ahead.”
A new Need for Speed is as big of a surprise as the sun rising every morning, and a new Medal of Honor was expected for this year following Battlefield 3 in 2011. Confirmation of a sequel came early last year, and we also saw a leaflet teasing its return in the DICE shooter. It’s not yet known who’ll be behind this year’s NFS, but it’s almost certainly Criterion.
