As we wait for more details on Electronic Arts' potentially controversial Medal of Honor reboot set in modern-day Afghanistan, Army of Two: The 40th Day producer Matt Turner may have just revealed where his company draws the line. Speaking to CVG, Turner told the publication that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's "No Russian" airport sequence may have "pushed it too far."
More importantly, Turner said EA "wouldn't have done it," but that isn't because he believes developer Infinity Ward made the wrong call. It's the opposite. He supports "No Russian."
"We have to start pushing limits, making statements and seeing what kind of social and cultural relevance that we can have which hasn't really been nailed yet," he said. "I think [Infinity Ward] were pushing towards that direction and trying to make people experience something truly terrible," he said. "Whether they were successful or not I'll leave up to the players to decide, but I liked the fact that they were trying something new that people haven't done before. I think that's really gutsy and my hat's off to Infinity Ward for trying at least."
Army of Two: The 40th Day was developed at EA Montreal, not EA Los Angeles. Whether the California-based team has a different philosophy...well, we'll have to wait and see.
