Donald Mustard, the general creative officer of Epic Games, will retire this month after serving the organization for seven years. He made this announcement now on Twitter, announcing that he is retiring to spend time with his wife and family after working in the video game industry for almost 25 times. & nbsp,
Most importantly, Mustard was in charge of Fortnite, overseeing the game’s narrative and ingenious decision-making as a battle royale. Although hundreds of people are working on Fortnite, it is likely that things will continue as usual because Epic Games has not yet announced who did fill the position after Mustard retires or what the future will look like. & nbsp,
What Mustard tweeted is as follows:
I’m leaving my position as Epic’s Chief Creative Officer this month after an extraordinary experience.
I’ve worked in the video game industry for almost 25 years, working with some of the most brilliant individuals always, and I am incredibly proud of our accomplishments. from the … picture. 9KJT9Jg2jr on Twitter

I’m leaving my position as Epic’s Chief Creative Officer this month after an extraordinary experience. I have enjoyed nearly 25 years in the game industry collaborating with some of the most talented people ever and I am so proud of what we have made together. From the ambitious Advent Rising, to the start of ChAIR where we created Undertow, Shadow Complex, and the Infinity Blade trilogy, to the honor of our tiny team becoming part of Epic, each new chapter allowed me to accomplish something new and original. I am especially proud of the opportunity I’ve had to help create and shape Fortnite.I am humbled to have been a part of the team that every day tries to bring ‘joy and delight’ to the Fortnite community! We love watching you experience every moment – leaping from the Battle Bus for the very first time, seeing the rocket crack open the sky, dancing with friends after a Victory Royale, being sucked into a black hole or being washed out to sea as The Island flipped over – and on and on! I can’t wait to now share in the future of Fortnite as a player alongside all of you! The teams are in the best hands and they are working on huge, jaw dropping, amazing things!!!I’m excited to spend time with my wife and family and am forever grateful for @TimSweeneyEpic and the Epic Games family.
