Report: Medal of Honor could have lost US Army support with Taliban multiplayer

On Friday, Electronic Arts made the decision to rename the Taliban multiplayer faction in Medal of Honor to the more generic "Opposing Force". Now comes word that the decision to rename the faction in EA's upcoming multiplayer shooter might have been due to the possible loss of official US Army support for the game.

Kotaku reports that the US Army worked with the Danger Close development team at EA to make the modern day military shooter as authentic as possible. However the US Army reps claim in the story that EA did not tell them about the content of the game's multiplayer modes, including the Taliban faction, until word got out in the press about the feature over the summer. While the US Army could announce it was pulling its official support for Medal of Honor, it has no real authority to force EA to make changes to the game. In the end EA seems to have made the decision voluntarily.
