Seth Killian, longtime member of the fighting game community and community manager at Capcom, recently announced that he will be parting ways with the company. While the blog entry obviously doesn’t go into specifics, he touches on his history with the Street Fighter series and the fantastic opportunity he was given to help make Street Fighter IV a reality. We’ve included a short excerpt from the post, but be sure to head over to Capcom-Unity to read the entire thing.
And finally, to the FGC: In no uncertain terms, you have been my reason for everything. A game can be incredible, but it’s the players and where they take it that elevate it into legend. Both as individuals and as a group, you have taught me more than I could have ever thought possible. Every hour on the road and every air mile towards my first million doesn’t begin to repay the debt I feel to all of you. You are a family to me. Today, the community is strong, and growing stronger. We fight, we make mistakes, we argue, and we compete but in the end we have each other. To you, I can only say “thank you.” You continue to electrify the world and show the power not just of a game, but of a living, breathing community. Strive to be your best selves, to share our magic with the next generation, and above all else, take care of each other. We are a family.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Seth for everything he’s done over the years and wish him success in his future endeavors, whatever they may be. Be sure to leave him some love in the comment section below.
