Battlefield 2042: A Lot Of Changes Are About To Happen Within DICE!

Battlefield 2042’s head of design has left the studio behind, and allegedly, many more might follow him through DICE’s door.


A few days ago, we wrote about how Battlefield 2042 has had a rough launch, leading to being one of the worst-rated Steam games of all time. Even now, looking at Steam250, it’s still not that far from the bottom ten, as it stands in 17th position, which is still a shameful result from an Electronic Arts-published title, as we tend to expect much more from such a publisher.

According to Tom Henderson, Fawzi Mesmar, DICE’s design director, is leaving the first possible moment from the studio now that Battlefield 2042 is complete. He even got an email that was sent internally to other team members. Here’s the email: “It was an absolute pleasure to serve on the best design teams in the galaxy. 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. I have been made an offer I couldn’t refuse at another company that has been kind enough to wait for me until we have shipped [Battlefield 2042]. It was super important to me to be here with the team as we achieved this historic milestone.

While Oskar [Gabrielson, DICE GM] and myself have been discussing my succession plans for some time – and it will be announced in due course – we opted to delay this communication till after launch to keep the focus – rightfully so – on the game we’ve been putting a monumental amount of effort on,” Mesmar wrote.

On Twitter, Henderson added: “DICE are essentially hiring a new studio. Expect departures, etc., to start being announced this week. To clarify – They are hiring a lot of new people under DICE and not making another DICE studio.” It sounds shocking.
