Mike Capps Leaves Epic Games
Epic Games president Mike Capps announced in December 2012 that he was stepping down from his position, but that he would remain in an advisory role with the company. In a message on his Facebook page today, Capps revealed that he is “no longer affiliated” with Epic Games. He wrote:
“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. I’m sad to say that plans have changed, and as of February 11th, I’m no longer affiliated with Epic Games.”
Capps will remain an active member of the gaming industry, but his focus has shifted primarily to parenthood. He wrote:
“So what’s next for me? 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.
“I have many wonderful memories of my time at Epic, and I wish my friends there all the best in their future projects.”
Congratulations and best of luck to you, Mike.
