Epic Games president Mike Capps has commented on the ongoing “Did Team Bondi act like a gigantic cock?” debate by adding his own thoughts when it comes to giving staff the credit they deserve. He thinks it’s “really f*cking cheap” to give simple credit where it’s due, and a common courtesy.
“I think credit is really important, and it’s really f***ing cheap — pardon my French,” Capps said. “It doesn’t cost you a thing to have a guy in the credits who worked for you for three years and had to move to Seattle because his mom got sick six months before the product shipped. Or even just say, he worked hard on this game but didn’t finish it.”
Team Bondi stands accused of overworking its staff and revoking their names from the L.A. Noire credits if they chose to quit the company. Michael Pachter believes developers should expect to be overworked, while Splash Damage added that crunch period shouldn’t be taken for granted.
