RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Analyst Casts Doubt On Medal Of Honor: Warfighter's Ability To Succeed

Posted on Monday, October 22 @ 11:53:56 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

Did you know a new Medal of Honor game is coming out this week? Trust me, you're not the only person surprised.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is set to debut tomorrow and there's already serious doubt waiting to greet it when it arrives. Analyst Doug Creutz went as far as to say that Cowen and Company, the financial services firm he works for, has been skeptical of the game's ability to deliver for several months now.

Since late July we [Cowen and Company] have been cautious about EA's ability to reach management's FY13 guidance due to our view that Medal of Honor: Warfighter appears likely to be a major disappointment. 

He further explained:

With only a week before a murderer's row of AAA titles begins to come out (Assassin's Creed III on October 30; Halo 4 on November 6; Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on November 13), we think MoH:W has a very short window to capture sales, and a dearth of reviews is unlikely to help. The decision to make early review copies unavailable does not suggest to us that the company has a high degree of confidence in the quality of the game.

Battlefield 3 managed to release within proximity of a flurry of AAA releases and has sold over 10 million copies, so releasing during holiday season isn't necessarily a death sentence. That said, the other reasons for his—and their—doubt are completely valid. EA is usually proud to send out review copies and advertise a new release like it's the last day on Earth. But neither is the case, and that's extremely alarming for anyone with a pre-order.
