Epic Games' president Mike Capps has announced he is stepping down from this role, but will still be around in some capacity. Capps made the announced as a post today on the Epic Games website. He has worked at Epic for 10 years.
In his post, Capps made a point to say that he will still be on the board of directors at Epic and will still be an adviser to the team. So why leave his presidential gig? Capps says he wants to spend some time at home with his wife, who is expecting their first son. He adds, "I might do some teaching, spend more time on creative writing, and maybe get more active with a few charities."
This is the latest high profile departure from Epic this year. In October, its long time design director, Cliff Bleszinski, announced he would leave Epic "to chart the next stage of his career." Earlier this year, producer Rod Fergusson, who helped with the development of Epic's Gear of War series, left the company to take on a similar role at Irrational Games on the upcoming BioShock Infinite.
Epic Games has three announced games in the works; the PC game Fortnite, which will use Unreal Engine 4, the Xbox 360 shooter Gears of War Judgement and the iOS game Infinity Blade: Dungeons.
