Reports have surfaced that ‘BioShock Infinite’ Product Director, Rod Fergusson, is leaving developer Irrational Games. Fergusson joined the team at Irrational to help finish the in-progress production of the latest ‘BioShock’ title following his departure from Epic Games where he worked on the ‘Gears of War’ series.
Of his departure from Irrational, Fergusson says “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.” The Ken to which he refers is of course Ken Levine, Irrational’s creative lead. He goes on to say, “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.”
He has not announced any future plans, though you can follow him on Twitter: @GearsViking
