Battlefield 2042 Lead Leaves DICE

VGC reports that Fawzi Mesmar is departing DICE following the release of Battlefront 2042. Mesmar had served as head of design, overseeing design of Star Wars Battlefront II and Battlefield V as well as the newest Battlefield game. "It was an absolute pleasure to serve on the best design teams in the galaxy," he told staff in an email. "The incredible design work that you do continues to inspire me every day. Thank you for putting some faith in me, I hope I didn’t disappoint." Battlefield 2042 has launched to negative reviews and promises of future patches with improvements. VGC notes that this departure has been planned for a while, saying it expects this won't disrupt these plans for the military shooter sequel.

From experience, SWBF2 was a total disaster. That 9-minute single-player campaign was total trash.
At least it was a brief trash.
It was trash because it was short. I enjoyed the story, but it wasn't worth $60.
Hey, putting more resources into a SP campaign might cut into Kotick's bonus. Can't have that.
Yeah. 😟

So this was the head of design. The guy who actually thought removing all the core staple features of the series, was a good idea. Let's all wish him well on his future projects. Ha.

"I hope I didn’t disappoint"

You know you really screwed the pooch when that line is in your departing message.

Battlefield 2042 is a disaster on every level, thank baby jesus terrible goofballs like this individual are gone, but sadly will probably be somehow replaced by even worse. This franchise is D.O.A.

I'm sure it was tough to balance EAs corporate meddling so /shrug

This release now, fix later shit really needs to be curbed soon though its just getting way out of hand. The products coming to market from the AAA side of the industry are embarrassing.
Didn't I read that the release version was 0.2 or something? They're not even trying to hide that this was alpha/beta code.
