EA's blockbuster shooter Medal of Honor must sell more than 3 million copies or there will be no sequel, if you can believe that.

Executive producer Greg Goodrich told the New York Times that if the milestone wasn't met, "I'm not going to be able to do another one."

Goodrich also went on to reveal that the game was nearly subtitled Anaconda, after the failed Afghanistan operation of the same name - not the 1997 film in which Jennifer Lopez tussles with a giant snake.

But the special operatives advising on MOH insisted the recreated events "hit a little too close to home" and "would put a sour taste in our brothers' mouths". So it was changed. And from there on, Goodrich told the team to focus on "authentic and plausible" rather than "accurate and realistic".

Medal of Honor will be released on 15th October on three formats: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. You'll be able to play it two weeks earlier at the Eurogamer Expo 2010, which takes place from 1st to 3rd October at Earl's Court in London. Hurry, though - tickets are selling out.
