In August, Paul Meegan stepped down as president of LucasArts. Three months later, Paul finds himself at Epic Games as vice president of product development. Meegan first joined Epic in 2006 establishing Epic Games China.

“I’m really happy to be back in the Epic family and working with some of the best developers in the industry,” Meegan says. “Epic has demonstrated success in AAA PC and console games, mobile entertainment and the engine technology business.  Epic is well-positioned to grow and thrive in the years ahead. The company is stepping up its game across the board, and I’m honored to be a part of that process."

Epic Games has seen a number of its top executives leave recently. Design director Cliff Bleszinski, producer Rod Fergusson, and People Can Fly creative director Adrian Chmielarz have all left the company in the past few months.
