Titled Medal Of Honour, it will take place in modern-day Afghanistan and focus on a team of highly-trained US soldiers during the conflict.
"[It] will introduce the Tier 1 Operator: a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no-one else can handle," said a press release.
"The development team has been working closely with Tier 1 Operators from the US Special Operations Community since the earliest stages of development to create the most authentic modern war experience."
The single-player campaign will be handled by EA LA, developer of the PS2-era Medal Of Honour titles, Boom Blox and Command & Conquer 3.
Multiplayer will be developed by DICE, creator of the Battlefield series.
The title will be released on 360, PS3 and PC in 2010.
