David Goldfarb, Lead Designer for BF3, Quits DICE
David Goldfarb, lead designer for Battlefield 3 and Bad Company 2, has quit DICE, he revealed today. Speaking about the matter with Kotaku, he said that “It was time to move on for me.” When asked what this means for the games he designed, he added “Fans have nothing to worry about.”
Goldfarb’s next move has not been revealed. “Today and yesterday,” he told Kotaku, “I worked on cleaning up and reframing chapter 1 and 2. Mostly what this was was coming to grips with the old style of the book, which is this thing a friend of mine called ‘Biblepunk’ for lack of a better word. Or Old Testament noir. Anyway. It’s weird, and it’s especially weird revisiting it as a writer and being like, how the hell am I going to get myself back in that creative headspace again.”
EA had no comment on the matter. Presumably this will not have any impact on Battlefield 4.
