Bach Takes Over As DICE’s CEO

In a move that’s bound to have little to no effect on Battlefield 3’s development, Patrick Bach (executive producer) replaces KM Troedsson while he is on leave. The reason behind the move is that KM Troedsson is in accordance with DICE’s policies which state that new parents should spend time with their children. Troedsson’s absence is expected to be about four months.

I think it is a bit unique at a big company, and certainly in the gaming industry, but we want the people working at DICE to see their job as a long time investment

Bach and a small team will manage the extra workload, with Bach overseeing the development of the Close Quarters DLC pack due out in June. Best of luck and congratulations to Troedsson!
