Earlier today Epic Games President Mike Capps made a statement saying that three senior members of their team will be departing, including the Creative Director of Gears of War: Judgment, Adrian Chmielarz.
Adrian Chmielarz, Andrzej Poznanski and Michal Kosieradzki have parted ways with People Can Fly and Epic Games in order to pursue other opportunities, which they will announce of their own accord.
Over the past decade, they have been instrumental in building People Can Fly into the talented team that it is today. We wish them well in their future endeavors. People Can Fly remains excited to release Gears of War: Judgment to fans early next year.
Chmielarz went on twitter to reassure fans who might be concerned about the development of the game right after the statement by Mike Capps:
Gears fans, you’re going to love Judgment. It’s in great hands. And don’t worry, you’ll hear about my plans soon enough. 🙂

Don’t know about you guys but Epic Games is a big company with a lot of talent. Losing a few people is not that big of a deal. As Chmielarz says, it’s in good hands.
Judgment is coming for Xbox 360 March 19 2013.
