EA has confirmed that Medal of Honor: Warfighter will receive a day-one patch.
The patch is due for a release on consoles and PC and features a slew of fixes for both the single-player and multiplayer component of the shooter.
Analyst Doug Creutz, meanwhile, believes the game will struggle to reach two million worldwide sales.
“Since late July we have been cautious about EA’s ability to reach management’s FY13 guidance due to our view that Medal of Honor: Warfighter appears likely to be a major disappointment,” said Creutz.
He added: “With only a week before a murderer’s row of AAA titles begins to come out (Assassin’s Creed III on October 30; Halo 4 on November 6; Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on November 13), we think MoH:W has a very short window to capture sales, and a dearth of reviews is unlikely to help. The decision to make early review copies unavailable does not suggest to us that the company has a high degree of confidence in the quality of the game.”
Medal of Honor: Warfighter launches today in North America and on Friday in Europe.
