Former Epic Games president Mike Capps departs from developer completely
"When we announced that I wanted to transition out of my leadership role at Epic, the plan was for a continued but less active role, service on the board of directors, and ideally, being that eccentric semi-retired guy who still comes to playtests and gold parties," Capps wrote on his Facebook page. "I’m sad to say that plans have changed, and as of February 11th, I’m no longer affiliated with Epic Games."
Capps also revealed that he broke the news first to the team at Epic before letting his departure be known to all. "I have many wonderful memories of my time at Epic, and I wish my friends there all the best in their future projects.”
Though currently focused on the upcoming birth of his first child, Capps has no intention of separating from video games entirely, saying that he’ll continue to advocate the industry in Washington and that he is considering a position in a few company advisory boards.
“Games have been so good to me, and I’m delighted to have the time to give back," he wrote.
