Mike Capps Steps Down from Advisory Role at Epic Games

Mike Capps, former president of Epic Games, has decided to leave his post-retirement advisory role at Epic.

Capps retired from Epic Games in December 2012, but declared he would stay on as an advisor.

“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,” Capps posted on Facebook. “I’m sad to say that plans have changed, and as of February 11th, I’m no longer affiliated with Epic Games.

“So what’s next for me? Games have been so good to me, and I’m delighted to have the time to give back. I’m a member of several game industry boards, and I’m proud to serve as an advocate for our art in Washington. 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.”

Capps was involved with America’s ArmyUnreal Tournament 3, and the Gears of War franchise.
