In last decade, video games related to war have never been as close associated as it is now with EA’s latest Medal of Honor: Frontline. In recent months the British Government has been upset over some on the content in the upcoming release.
But EA Games president Frank Gibeau isn’t sweating the bad press.
Gibeau is of the mind that the collaboration between EA and the US Military and Congressional Medal of Honor Society is what will win people over in the end, not just because of the accurate depiction of the ongoing conflict, but because it has allowed EA to produce “the best story for the game.”
“We respect the media’s views,” Gibeau replied, “but at the same time [these reports] don’t compromise our creative vision and what we want to do. The development teams care very much about what they’re building, and of course a bit of criticism from the media causes some to get demoralised, but at the end of the day we’re proud of what we’re doing.”
Needless to say with the game being made in the US, it won’t hinder the completion so expect it to be on par with the release date later this fall.
