Former Epic Games president Mike Capps has announced he is no longer affiliated with Epic Games.
Capps stepped down from his leadership role at the Unreal firm back in December, but had planned to remain on the board of directors in a less active role. However, for unknown reasons, this is no longer possible.
"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 explained in a post on Facebook.
He added: "So what’s next for me? 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! :)"
Capps spent more than 10 years at Epic.
