Fawzi Mesmar, head of design by Battlefield 2042, left DICE within days of the game’s launch. Mesmar had joined the studio’s ranks in 2019 and has worked on both the Battlefield series and the Star Wars: Battlefront franchise in the past.

The news was reported by VGC, who shared details of an internal studio email, and was later confirmed by an Electronic Arts spokesperson.

“It has been a real pleasure to be part of the best design team in the galaxy,” Mesmar wrote in his email to the DICE staff. “The incredible work you do continues to inspire me every day. Thank you for the trust you have placed in me, I hope I have not let you down.”

Mesmar claims to have received a must-have offer from another company. The new employer was flexible enough to allow him to continue his tenure at DICE until the release of Battlefield 2042.

“I was made an offer with I couldn’t refuse at another company that was kind enough to wait for me until the release of Battlefield 2042. It was very important for me to be here with the team as we hit this historic milestone. Me and Oskar (Gabrielson, general manager of DICE) we have been discussing my succession plans for some time, which will be announced in due course, and we have decided to delay this communication until after the launch, in order to maintain, rightly, the maxim focus on the game we’re monumentally engaging in. ”

Mesmar’s last day in DICE will be November 26, or tomorrow. He did not specify which studio he will join, but from the details of the email we learn that he will continue to work in Stockholm.

Battlefield 2042 has been available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC since last Friday. The game was not received with great enthusiasm by fans of the series, so much so that on Steam it is one of the titles with the lowest ratings ever. In addition to the numerous technical problems, among the criticisms of the fans there is the absence of voice chat and other “legacy” functions present in the previous chapters of the series.

In any case, DICE is working hard to accommodate player feedback and just yesterday announced the arrival of Battlefield 2042 Update 2 and 3.
