Mike Capps Leaves Epic Entirely

In a post on Facebook Michael Capps announces he is completely parting ways with Epic Games, after indicating he would be serving the company in an advisory role when he announced late last year he was stepping down from his post of president of the studio (thanks VideoGamer). "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," writes Capps. "Iím sad to say that plans have changed, and as of February 11th, Iím no longer affiliated with Epic Games." Besides burping his impending baby, Capps says he is "considering seats on a few company and advisory boards" (which sounds similar enough to his most recent role at Epic that it suggests questions about the departure), is "proud to serve as an advocate for our art in Washington," and is also contemplating pursuing teaching options.
