In an interesting twist to the recent departure of two top Irrational developers, Epic Games' production director Rod Fergusson has announced that he is to jump ship to join the BioShock Infinite developer.
"Yes it's true, I'm leaving my family at Epic to join my new family at Irrational in Boston starting tomorrow (August 10)," Fergusson wrote on Twitter
. "And yes I've played Infinite
and it's amazing! Can't wait for you guys to get your hands on it."
Fergusson has been involved in the development of all three Gears of War
titles at Epic Games, with his most notable credit being director of production in Gears of War 3
His arrival comes as sources cited on Kotaku state that
Irrational has been "lacking needed focus", culminating in the cancellation of two multiplayer modes for BioShock Infinite
