[Original story] DICE’s Core Gameplay Designer on Battlefield V, Florian le Bihan, has been banned from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
The gameplay designer recently took over the EA DICE Twitter account to share
Black Ops 4 Battlefield V related stuff. “Hi! I’m Florian Le Bihan (@DRUNKKZ3), Core Gameplay Designer at DICE working on #BattlefieldV and playing too much of the Open Beta – I will be taking over this account for a few days and hope to share some cool stuff with you!”, he wrote last month. “Got questions about gameplay? Throw!”
Bihan has been playing Treyarch’s latest Call of Duty installment as well, and posted his ban on Twitter followed by a video showing his skill and asking for an unban.
Please find attached to this tweet (below) a great video of me killing some other players on #BlackOps4. Accept this as a token of my appreciation towards your game (please unban).
P.S: Sorry for the bad edit, I know.https://t.co/grR2HreD20

The exact reason for his ban are unknown at this point, but based on his insane skill in Black Ops 4, Treyarch and players might have mistaken him for a bot.
Bihan is a former pro Esports player who got the opportunity to work at EA DICE. He joined DICE back in 2017 after being a pro player since 2014.
Let’s hope that Treyarch quickly unbans Bihan from Black Ops 4
