Epic Games president resigns

Mike Capps has resigned his position as president of Epic Games but has announced plans to remain on the company board in an advisory capacity

 

Epic Games president Mike Capps has announced he’s leaving the company after ten years at the North Carolina videogames developer.

Capps was one of the most recognisable figures at Epic, the developers behind the Gears Of War series and Unreal gaming engine, and the reasons behind his departure are unclear at this stage.

In a statement released about his resignation, Capps stated that he’d be staying on Epic’s board, but in an advisory capacity.

"After dedicating a decade of my life to Epic, and with so many close friends here, it's impossible to just walk away. I absolutely love this company," Capps said in his statement.

"Epic founder and CEO Tim Sweeney and other board members asked me to stay on the board, and I'm thrilled to do so as I'm truly excited about our future games and Unreal Engine 4," he added.

The list of high profile departures at Epic Games seems to be growing with each passing month. In October Design Director and Epic’s public face, Cliff Bleszinksi, announced his departure from the company he helped found.

Two months prior to that, Rod Fergusson, the director of production at Epic left the company to join Irrational Games, the company behind the hugely anticipated BioShock Infinite.
