In a situation you definitely don't see every day, a DICE developer working on Battlefield 5 has been banned from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Florian Le Bihan, core gameplay designer on Battlefield 5, has taken to Twitter to air his grievances about getting unfairly banned from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Le Bihan believes the ban has something to do with his excellent performance in multiplayer. In an effort to prove his innocence, Le Bihan posted a video showing off some of his best kills.
“So i got banned from Black Ops 4 LOL. Could you please not?” he revealed in a tweet, tagging the official accounts for Treyarch and Treyarch PC.
“Please find attached to this great video of me killing some other players in Black Ops 4. Accept this as a token of my appreciation towards your game (please unban).”
Here's the video he shared:
This indeed is the official, verified account of gameplay designer Florian Le Bihan. Battlefield fans will recognise it from the many Battlefield questions they answered in the past, and from a takeover of the official DICE Twitter account last month.
We have no way of verifying what the reason for the ban was, and the screenshot Le Bihan shared doesn't list a reason. It could simply be an error, or perhaps a false positive flagged by the game's automated anti-cheat system.
Le Bihan is a former pro player, and you can see a few of his earlier videos on his YouTube channel, so that could be why his skill was mistaken for a cheat.
