Mike Capps' summer vacation
comes to a close today, as the former Epic Games president accepts a new role at Quantum Break
developer Remedy Entertainment. Capps joins Remedy's board of directors and will help guide the growing studio of more than 100 employees.
Remedy CEO Matias Myllyrinne emphasizes the need for experienced guidance. "Like any team, I think a good board is a combination of different kinds of skill sets, and different kinds of strengths that really come together. That's the way, in my experience, the best teams work," Myllyrinne tells GamesIndustry International
. "Obviously Mike has a tremendous track record in the games industry. He's been very successful and has proven himself over and over again."
Capps stepped down
from his position as president of Epic Games late last year to take on a more limited advisory role within the company. Capps then fully broke away from Epic in March and considered advisory board positions at other gaming companies before settling on Remedy Entertainment.
