Rod Fergusson, a former producer at Epic Games who left last year to join Irrational Games, has quit that company and is looking for another opportunity.
“During my departure from Epic, I learned that Irrational was in need of a ‘closer’ to help finish Bioshock Infinite,” Fergusson told website Polygon. “I’ve been striving for better storytelling in the games I’ve worked on and I saw this as a great opportunity to learn … on how to build a truly story-driven game.
“I am very proud of the work that I did and of the team and what they were able to accomplish on Infinite. Now with the game shipped successfully, I’ve done what I set out to do here and now I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my life and career.”
Fergusson was deeply involved in Epic’s “Gears of War” franchise. He left Epic last August. His departure was one of several at the Cary-based company after China-based Tencent acquired a 40 percent stake last June.
