EALA FPS team to be called 'Danger Close' going forward, says report

New studio name for Medal of Honor team

The team developing Medal of Honor’s reboot has been likewise refreshed with a new studio brand.

Although the team is not housed in a separate location, the EALA unit making the shooter’s October refresh will now be called ‘Danger Close’.

The move echoes the establishment of Visceral Games, EA’s EA Redwood Shores-based team making the likes of Dante’s Inferno and Dead Space, and The Sims Studio – also based at Redwood Shores – while makes Sims games. Maxis is housed at that location too.

Danger Close is a military term to denote close-proximity fire.

"For us, rebooting Medal of Honor and taking it out of World War II into the current fight in Afghanistan is a lot like what we’ve done with the studio," executive producer Greg Goodrich told the site serving US games developers, Gamasutra. "It’s a refresh. It’s an opportunity. It’s a way to get our own identity."
