Electronic Arts has made it clear that the Upcoming Medal Of Honor would be the last title in the series if it didn't reach its sales target of at least 3 million units.
The original Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault was well received by FPS fans and scored a metacritic score of 91%. Consequent titles in the series disappointed fans and scored metacritic scores in the 75% range.
Medal OF Honor is already the subject of controversy due to the fact that it allows players to play as Taliban soldiers in multiplayer.
EA didn't disclose the game's budget but it seems to be huge, judging by the fact that they hired Linkin Park to soundtrack the game and arranged sound recording sessions at US military bases.
