Modern is the new World War II. Sources tell website MCV that the next entry in EA's Medal of Honor series will be set in the present day.
The source tells the site: "It's a new take on the modern warfare idea — and will really help give the series the kick up the arse it needs." The game is apparently slated for February/March 2010 on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. An announcement is expected before Christmas.
The modern era is nice and all, but when is someone going to set their war game during the Civil War. You know, 30-second reloading mini-game, sawing off legs, whiskey power-ups and unlockable moustaches. Bayonetting, cannons and toothless Southern men. SOMEONE MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
