Electronic Arts has confirmed that its modern-day Medal of Honor reboot will in fact be the first Mature-rated game in the franchise’s history.
Executive producer Greg Goodrich revealed the info in a recent Q&A posted on the game’s official site (via Cinemablend). Judging from the "100% in-game footage" included in the reveal trailer, it’s easy to see why the game will in fact be the most mature of the series.
Of course, this revelation is all the more interesting considering that just yesterday, EA Montreal producer Matt Turner was quoted as saying that the "No Russian" airport sequence in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 "pushed it too far," and that EA "wouldn’t have done it."
How EA Los Angeles will earn their Mature rating remains to be seen, but as Goodrich said in the Q&A, "We will always be grounded by our core tenets of authenticity and respect for the soldier." Guess we'll find out if the "authentically M-rated" approach works out for EA when the game is released in the fall of next year.
