Battlefield 2042 head of design Fawzi Mesmar, who also worked on the Star Wars: Battlefront series, in an email sent to employees this week acquired by VideoGamesChronicle announced he his leaving developer DICE now that Battlefield 2042 has been released.

"It was an absolute pleasure to serve on the best design teams in the galaxy," said Mesmar. "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 achieve this historical milestone.

"While Oskar [Gabrielson, studio 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's final day working at DICE will be November 26. His next position will be in Stockholm. 

"Fawzi Mesmar is leaving DICE at the end of the week. We wish him the best in his future endeavours," said an Electronic Arts representative.

After reading all those glass door reviews and how tone deaf EA upper management seem to be with this game, I don't think it's surprising to see them leave after seeing the sinking ship that is BF.
