We thought the new Medal of Honor from EA was being developed by EA's L.A. studio and EA's DICE team in Sweden. Not quite.

Medal of Honor is being made by Danger Close Games, according to the new EA site linked here. New name for EA L.A.?

UPDATE: We've got the confirmation, via an offiicial statement that this is a rebranding of the team at EA LA that has been working on the single-player portion of the new Medal of Honor:

"Today, EA Los Angeles announced the creation of a new studio, Danger Close; a name inspired by real world military terminology that initiates a call for fire to indicate that friendly forces are within close proximity of the target (usually 600 meters). It's the decision to take a chance directly with an enemy, rather than sit back and call in the airstrikes/artillery from a safe distance.

"Medal of Honor is the first game to fall under the Danger Close studio. And because the term "Danger Close" is all about is about pushing the boundaries, it's the perfect fit for Medal of Honor given the team's decision to take on a story that is both controversial and one that needs to be told."
