Epic Games President Mike Capps is Resigning
Epic Games has lost another key member to the organization, as President Mike Capps has announced his retirement to devote himself more to his family.
The former President seems very positive of the situation, as he should be and said he wants to be “a stay at home dad for a while”.
“Other than cleaning up baby barf, I don’t have much planned. I might do some teaching, spend more time on creative writing, and maybe get more active with a few charities,” he said.
Capps has spent more than ten years at Epic Games, and has said that his devotion to the company, its games and his colleagues hasn’t swayed; he is “thrilled” to stay on the company’s board. While he’ll be around to offer advice and guidance to the developer, he also believes strongly in its existing talent.
“I’ve got great confidence in our executive team – VP of Development Paul Meegan is new to our Raleigh HQ, but we’ve worked with him for years, and I can only contemplate this retirement knowing that he and VP of Operations John Farnsworth can manage development better than I ever did,” Capps concluded.
This is great to see. Go and be a great dad Mr.Capps, you deserve to take it easy for a while as you raise your family.
