Rod Fergusson has left Epic Games to join Irrational Games in order to help them finish BioShock Infinite. The senior producer on Gears of War 2 and executive producer on Gears of War 3 confirmed the move via Twitter. Fergusson spent almost 8 years at Epic Games and prior to that he spent 10 years working at Microsoft as a program manager.
This good news, for BioShock fans anyway, comes on top of the pile of bad news we've heard about Infinite lately. We recently learned that two key senior members of the creative team, Tim Gerritsen and Nate Wells, left the company. We also learned that two multiplayer modes had to be cut from the game, an area that Fergusson will definitely be able to help out with.
Fergusson’s only comment on his new project was, “I’ve played Infinite and it’s amazing! Can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on it.”
You'll be able to just that when BioShock Infinite comes out on February 26, 2013.
