In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Mike Capps Withdraws From Epic Games Entirely

Posted on Friday, March 8 @ 08:21:57 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Mike Capps, the former president of Epic Games, announced late last year that he would be stepping down from his position to instead serve as an advisor of sorts at the company. Now he's pulling out entirely.

On his Facebook page, Capps explained:

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.

While the former Epic exec will be spending more time with his family—he has a child on the way—he still wants to remain involved in the video game industry. "Games have been so good to me, and I’m delighted to have the time to give back," he said, adding, "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."

With Cliff Bleszinski and Mike Capps no longer at Epic, do you think the company is headed to a trying future? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
