10. Re: Mike Capps Leaves Epic Entirely Mar 8, 2013, 10:17 Beamer

I'm guessing he saw his life line end, when perhaps he saw a possible acquisition from other bean counting studios. Best to jump ship in those scenarios, good on him, hope he goes indie, hope everyone goes indie, and get going on kickstarter, to kill off these publishers.

That or he is now having coffee with Gabe Newell, his new partner.

Epic was rumored to have been offered 1 billion to be taken over.
Capps, as a board member, had significant equity.

So, again, your theory holds no water. If Epic were trying to be purchased by some "other bean counting studio" then those with equity would wait it out and cash in rather than jump ship at a random time.

The way this memo is phrased, it sounds like he was bought out by the other members of the board. You always get significantly less money that way than by being purchased.

The conspiracy theories some people post never have any real thought behind them. Or, at least, no horsepower behind that thought.
