After the release of Battlefield 2042, a top creative leaves DICE.

In recent years, the franchise's head of design stated that his departure was already planned.

Despite the fact that Battlefield 2042's premiere was far from spectacular, it was significantly better than Battlefield V's, and the development team is devoted to making the game better. A news article appeared to stir off fears around EA DICE for the departure of a major creative associated to the project as part of its launch, but there is nothing to be concerned about.


EA DICE lead designer Fawzi Mesmar announced his retirement from the studio after meeting the launch of Battlefield 2042, according to the VGC. Although the announcement comes amid a slew of criticisms and issues plaguing the game, he insists that the creative director's resignation has nothing to do with it because it was a long-ago choice.

The designer informed his colleagues of his decision in an email, writing: "It was an absolute pleasure to serve on the top design teams in the galaxy." Every day, the fantastic design work they've done continues to excite me. Thank you for putting your trust in me; I hope I don't let you down. You made me an offer I couldn't refuse at another company, which was gracious enough to hold off on hiring me until the current launch. It was critical for me to be present with the team when we achieved this milestone.

While Oskar [Gabrielson, studio general manager] and I have been discussing my succession plans for some time, and that will be announced in due course, we decided to wait until after launch to keep the attention, for good cause, on the game we've been putting a huge amount of effort into.

Fawzi Mesmar joined EA DICE in 2019 and was immediately assigned to the Star Wars Battlefront II, Battlefield V, and Battlefield 2042 development teams. According to EA, the creative department's last day will be November 26.

Battlefield 2042 is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox One S, and PC.
