Former Epic Games president Mike Capps parts ways with studio
Mike Capps leaves advisory role at Epic Games to focus on family.
Former Epic Games president Mike Capps has announced he is leaving his advisory role within the studio and will no longer be affiliated with the prominent developer.
Capps had held his advisory role since December 2012, when he stood down as Epic Games' president.
"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," said Capps 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. I have many wonderful memories of my time at Epic, and I wish my friends there all the best in their future projects."
Capps intends to remain part of the video game industry, but is now focusing on family.
"Games have been so good to me, and I'm delighted to have the time to give back. I'm a member of several game industry boards, and I'm proud to serve as an advocate for our art in Washington. I'm considering seats on a few company and advisory boards, as well as options for teaching at one of the world-class universities in the North Carolina Triangle area. And mostly, I'm focused on being a new dad in a few short weeks. Time is flying by, and I've still got a dozen games I want to play before the UnSleep begins!"
Epic Games' next title, Gears of War: Judgment, will be released on March 19 in the US and March 22 in Europe.
