Mike Capps has announced on his Facebook page he is leaving his “less active” role on the Board of Directors at Epic Games. Capps has been in an advisory role since he stood down as Epic Games president in December of last year.
“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.” The post read, in part. “I’m sad to say that plans have changed, and as of February 11th, I’m no longer affiliated with Epic Games.”
Capps said although he is currently focusing on family, he does intend to remain in part of the video game industry.
“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. And mostly, I’m focused on being a new dad in a few short weeks. Time is flying by, and I’ve still got a dozen games I want to play before the UnSleep begins! ”
