The story does not say if Fawzi Mesmar leaves with a feeling of duty accomplished given that Battlefield 2042 posts a record number of negative reviews on Steam and a mediocre 67 of average on OpenCritic, but this adventurer passed by Atlus, Gameloft, Enish and King, ensures that his departure was scheduled for a long time. His next destination is not yet known but he says he received a “proposition impossible to refusefrom another company, which will also allow him to stay in Stockholm. Hired in September 2019 by DICE as Director of Design, Fawzi Mesmar was part of the studio’s management team and headed the entire team of designers, namely more than 80 people in charge of the design of the game, the levels, the user interface and even the technique.
The announcement of Fawzi Mesmar’s departure was relayed on the site VGC by Tom Henderson, often knowledgeable about the Electronic Arts franchise, who adds on Twitter that very many departures are expected within DICE, for as many recruitments.
Meanwhile, DICE obviously continues to smut and has just rolled out the game’s second post-launch update. here, it offers a list of changes and balances for vehicles and weapons while fixing major issues noted during Early Access week. The third update is currently scheduled for next week and will bring even more changes, fixes and improvements than the previous two.
