    EA COO Peter Moore announced the news during a recent financial call, having a little swipe at reviewers in the process.

    "Critics were polarized and gave the game scores which were, frankly, lower than it deserved," said Moore. "This one is behind us now. We are taking Medal of Honor out of the rotation and have a plan to bring year-over-year continuity to our shooter offerings."

    EA Labels president Frank Gibeau added, "We're in a hit-driven business where it's about what you can build in a certain period of time and really deliver for the marketplace, and frankly we missed on Medal of Honor. And we take responsibility for that."

    Although EA made $1.18 billion in non-GAAP net revenue during the last quarter, that figure fell below the company’s estimated figure of $1.25 to $1.35 billion. EA is putting that shortfall down to Medal of Honor.

    The good news comes via the performance of FIFA 13 and Battlefield 3 Premium. The latest instalment of EA’s long-running football series sold over 12 million units last year, 23 per cent up on FIFA 12. Meanwhile, Battlefield 3 Premium has racked up 2.9 million subscribers to date, generating over $108 million in sales.

    Discussing next year’s line-up, the publisher revealed that Fuse has been delayed into the second quarter of calendar 2013. It also said it has high expectations for Dead Space 3 after the demo for the game was downloaded 44 per cent more times than that of its predecessor.
