Seth Killian leaves Capcom

"I have chosen a new path which will let me embrace a new dream."

Seth Killian - Capcom USA's marketing chief, Street Fighter community man and EVO co-founder - has announced that he's leaving the company.

"In no uncertain terms, Capcom has been a dream for me," he wrote on the company blog before stating his last day will be 22nd June.

It's unclear where Killian will be off to next, as he left only the cryptic musing "I have chosen a new path which will let me embrace a new dream."

Killian insisted that there's no animosity between him and Capcom and he'll continue to support the company. "I will leave as I began--a Capcom fan for life, looking forward to all the great games still to come."

He thanked Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono, former Capcom COO the late Mark Beaumont, senior vice president Christian Svensson and the fighting game community at large.

"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."

In addition to promoting Street Fighter, Killian was also the co-founder of EVO, an annual fighting game championship held in Las Vegas. EVO 212 will take place from 6th July to 8th July in Paradise, Nevada.
