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.
