Navy SEALs Reprimanded for Consulting on Medal of Honor: Warfighter

November 9, 2012Written by Jesse Meikle

One of the main focuses of EA’s critically lambasted Medal of Honor: Warfighter is to portray war and military combat circumstances as realistically as possible. So, naturally EA looked to those who actually have military experience, to help consult with the game. Unfortunately, CBS is reporting that 7 members of SEAL Team Six are being reprimanded for their paid involvement in Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

The SEALs allegedly used classified material given to them by the Navy to aid EA. It’s unclear what secrets the group allegedly unveiled, but they are nevertheless “guilty” of violating the unwritten code that SEALs are “silent warriors who shun the spotlight.” Being reprimanded will likely ruin their chance for a promotion, and their pay has been halved for two months.

It’s unfair to form a solid opinion based on how little we know, but what’s your gut reaction to this? I’m surprised, as the SOCOM series often flaunted their military involvement, and Ghost Recon Future Solider did the same, albeit more on the technology side. This interesting situation has me curious as to what they could of possibly revealed, I haven’t played MoH: Warfighter (largely because I read our review) but, I’m 99.7% sure the United States missile launch locations aren’t outlined in EA’s Fall blockbuster.
