The lights are on
Mike Capps vacated his role as president of Epic Games at the end of last year, but he remained on in an advisory role and on the board of directors. Now Capps has announced that he is no longer affiliated with the company in any way.
On his Facebook page, Capps posted in part: "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."
Capps says in the future he'll continue to be an advocate for the industry in Washington, he's considering a few advisory boards with companies, and that he'll be spending time with his family.
