FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Mike Capps Withdraws From Epic Games Entirely

Posted on Friday, March 8 @ 08:21:57 PST 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.
