Micah Lapping-Carr, a former production intern at EA Los Angeles, has stated in his LinkedIn CV that the next Medal of Honor title will be set in modern times.
"Electronic Arts Los Angeles
(Computer Software industry)
June 2008 — August 2008 (3 months)
Worked on a Medal of Honor modern combat title in various roles, including design and software engineering."
It has already been rumored that the next Medal of Honor title may be set in 2002 Afghanistan.
This information comes after Infinity Ward's Vince Zampella told the Official PlayStation Magazine that originally, Activision wanted more WWII games and was not interested in Call of Duty 4 being Modern Warfare.
"With Call of Duty 2, we were dead set against it being World War 2," said Zampella. "But Activision really wanted it, the compromise sort of being that we'd get some dev kits for consoles in exchange for doing a World War 2 game. We always wanted to be on consoles and Activision saw us as more of a PC developer.
"And something I'll add to that, Activision also did not want Modern Warfare. They thought working on a modern game was risky and [thought], 'oh my god you can't do that, it's crazy!' They were doing market research to show us we were wrong the whole time."
