Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare might be getting more compliments, this time from Electronic Arts. Rumor has it that the next installment of their WWII FPS series, Medal of Honor, will set foot in modern day Afghanistan, based on the military's "Anaconda" operation in 2002.
Much like Call of Duty 4's deviation from the traditional World War II setting, the rumored Medal of Honor game will be use current weaponry (reported over 60 customizable weapons) and settings. However, unlike Infinity Ward's latest shooter, the new MoH's single player campaign will focus on historical events.
The latest Medal of Honor installments were Medal of Honor: Airborne (PC, Xbox 360, PS3) and Medal of Honor Heroes 2 (Nintendo Wii), released last November.
