The Electronic Arts stock (ERTS) took a plunge of roughly 6% after the reviews for Medal of Honor were published yesterday. The stock was previously “inflated” the amount of hype that EA has been putting into the Medal of Honor series reboot, but none of that hype can make up for a mediocre game. While the game has received generally positive reviews across the boards, the scores don’t quite match up to the hype surrounding the game or our expectations.
Following the stock price drop, EA has responded saying “This is an essentially big achievement considering Medal of Honor has been dormant for several years. This is the first year in rebooting the franchise. Medal of Honor is part of a larger EA strategy to take share in the shooter category. This is a marathon not a sprint — today’s Medal of Honor launch represents a step forward in that race.” At least EA is keeping a positive attitude towards the situation and will continue their efforts into the booming “shooter” category.
