Rod Fergusson, the former Gears of War producer who joined Irrational Games to help wrap up BioShock Infinite, is currently in the process of leaving the company, Fergusson confirmed to gaming site, Polygon today.
Fergusson says that while he is still at the company he is in the process of working through the transition and hasn’t yet determined where he will go next.
“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.”
Fergusson joined Irrational Games last August as the executive vice president of development, spending about nine months helping with the final development of Infinite. Apparently his plans had always been to leave after finishing up on Bioshock.
