Ex-Epic president Mike Capps joins Remedy's board of directors

Former Epic Games president Mike Capps has joined Remedy Entertainment's board of directors, GamesIndustry International reports. Capps retired from Epic in December after ten years with the company.

"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," Remedy CEO Matias Myllyrinne said. "That's the way, in my experience, the best teams work. Obviously Mike has a tremendous track record in the games industry. He's been very successful and has proven himself over and over again."

The house of Alan Wake and Quantum Break also brought Finnish digital security CEO Christian Fredrikson onto its board, saying he will bring in a valuable outside perspective.

Capps tweeted that this doesn't mean the end of his early retirement, it's just a way to stay involved with the industry. We imagine the salary doesn't hurt, either.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
