Interesting thought, I've thought the same thing about how the story will unfold. I certainly wouldn't mind using a sensationalized version of SEAL team six to take down Bin Laden. I figure the game will stay in Afghanistan, of course they might progress the years of the second game, to match currently combative, political, social circumstances so it looks relevant. as well as tie in what happened at the end of the first game (I say it this way to avoid spoiling for people.)
Though i could be very wrong.
EA will turn Battlefield 3, it's CoD juggernaut depending how well it sells, that is..
I just hope that Danger Close supports Medal of Honor 2 better than they have supported the current game. I don't pretend to understand what politics went on at EA to get DICE to develop the multiplayer, but they could have at least turned that code over to Danger Close to maintain after the game's launch.
For the most part the entire experience is good, I just wish that they could/would have patched the multiplayer a few times. Then again, with a biyearly game release cycle, where's the incentive to keep patching a game after its release (see MW2 bugs, exploits, and hacks that will never be patched).
