Official Xbox Magazine has been given the scoop on the next Medal of Honor game, Warfighter.

In development at Danger Close, and to be published by Electronic Arts, Medal of Honor Warfighter will once again follow the exploits of “tier 1 operatives”, though the setting has not been disclosed.

The game is built on Battlefield 3 developer DICE’s Frostbite 2.0 engine. Unlike Medal of Honor 2010, Danger Close will be developing the multiplayer component itself.

Warfighter will be shown to press at the Game Developers Conference on Tuesday, 6th March.

The game is scheduled for an October release date.

Danger Close’s last Medal of Honor game received lukewarm reviews but managed to sell more than 5 million copies at retail.
