Mike Capps No Longer at Epic Games

Mike Capps No Longer at Epic Games

Mike Capps, former president of Epic Games who stepped down last year, is no longer at the company. The news comes from a post he made on his Facebook page.

“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,” he said.

This isn’t a completely out of nowhere announcement, as the staff at Epic was made aware of the news before Capps made it known to the public.

“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,” he continued.

Capps ends his post by stating that he’s preparing to be a father soon and that he has several games he wants to get through before sleep becomes scarce.
