Michael K. Williams' Battlefield 2042 will be a posthumous project

Michael Williams, an interpreter most known for his work in shows including The Wire and Boardwalk Empire, died in his apartment in the Brooklyn borough of the United States. The cause of death has not been officially determined, but police sources quoted in The New York Post suggest an overdose. The 54-year-old African-American actor has also appeared in the Battlefield series of video games. He will appear in Battlefield 2042, which will be released as one of his posthumous works, in addition to the fourth version.

Electronic Arts has reacted to the news with a brief message on social media: ""Today, we grieve the untimely loss of Michael K. Williams," EA writes in the Battlefield 2042 official account. “Only his tremendous presence surpasses her efforts on him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and supporters all across the world."

Little Omar and a lot more

Michael  Williams rose to fame as Omar Little on HBO's The Wire, but his list of accomplishments also includes Boardwalk Empire and Lovecraft Territory. He has been nominated for four Emmy Awards over his professional career. His next project, on the other hand, was unveiled just last week and is based on the life of world heavyweight champion George Foreman. In addition, the Emmys will be handed out in just a few days, on September 20, and Williams is one of the nominees for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series for his work in Lovecraft Territory.

Battlefield 2042 will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC on October 22. EA DICE's game will not include a campaign mode because it is primarily focused on multiplayer. Whatever the case may be, Michael K. Williams has managed to capture his talent.
