Fergusson is an extremely talented veteran in the game industry. He was a producer on the Gears of Wars series and was specifically brought over to Irrational Games for his expertise; likely to see the game hit its launch date without a hitch.
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.
It would appear that next chapter has arrived. Stay tuned for more info as it comes.
