There is no doubt that BioShock Infinite is Irrational Games’ crown jewel. It has become a frontrunner for game of year and has been heralded as one of the greatest games of this generation. So it is saddening to report that one of the men behind such a masterpiece will be leaving Irrational Games.
Rod Fergusson joined Irrational back in August as the VP of development. An integral part of finishing BioShock Infinite, he is now in the process of leaving Irrational Games. He had this to say:
During my departure from Epic, I learned that Irrational was in need of a ‘closer’ to help finish BioShock Infinite. I’ve been striving for better storytelling in the games I’ve worked on and I saw this as a great opportunity to learn from Ken and his team 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.
What do you think about Rod’s departure? Let us know below.
