When Epic Games president Mike Capps announced his retirement in December, he said he would stay on the company's board of directors. This new advisory role would give him more time for his family, charities, and personal projects. But stating that "plans have changed," Capps has now broken from Epic completely.
"I'm sad to say that plans have changed, and as of February 11, I'm no longer affiliated with Epic Games," Capps said on Facebook. "I have many wonderful memories of my time at Epic, and I wish my friends there all the best in their future projects." He points out that the long delay between his end date and the announcement was because he "thought it was best for Epic's staff to hear it first."
Capps said he's considering a seat on company and advisory boards, or possibly a teaching position at one of the schools in the North Carolina area.
