Seth Killian was the Community Manager over at Capcom, but in reality he was much more than that. He was the fighting game community’s direct link to the Street Fighter franchise, and a great representative for both Capcom and their commitment to competitive gaming. Sadly, today he announced that he will be leaving Capcom.
I’m posting today to say that Friday, June 22nd will be my last day at Capcom,” said Killian, on his Capcom blog.
“Writing this is incredibly difficult. In no uncertain terms, Capcom has been a dream for me.
“I have chosen a new path which will let me embrace a new dream, but to everyone that ever believed in this dream we shared together, let me say this final thanks. I will leave as I began–a Capcom fan for life, looking forward to all the great games still to come.”
I was lucky enough to speak to Seth when he was over in Australia promoting Street Fighter X Tekken, and had an absolute blast talking about our different experiences with competitive communities. I’m a big fan of competitive gaming in general, and it was great to talk to someone with such a great understanding of what makes competitive gaming tick. I look forward to hearing where he ends up.
