Capcom's main Street Fighter Seth Killian exiting the company on June 22


Capcom USA's strategic marketing director of online and community Seth Killian announced today that he's vacating his six-year position. Killian's known for being the face of Capcom's fighting games as of late (aside from producer Yoshinori Ono), not to mention being a co-founder of the annual EVO fighting game championships where he goes by the name "S-Kill." His last day with Capcom is this Friday, June 22.

Killian took to his blog on Capcom-Unity to announce his departure, where he said, "In no uncertain terms, Capcom has been a dream for me." He thanked a variety of folks at Capcom – from Ono to Christian Svensson, and dedicated quite a few words specifically to the fighting game community. "Both as individuals and as a group, you have taught me more than I could have ever thought possible," he wrote.

Killian didn't tell where he's heading next, but he did note, "I have chosen a new path which will let me embrace a new dream." Here's hoping he doesn't dream about being a bathroom attendant on an oil rig! What a twist that'd be!
