Mustard has been with the company since July 2016. He didn't share any details on whether he found a new team to join or other future plans.

The developer began his career in the game industry about 25 years ago. In 2005, he co-founded ChAIR studio (known for Undertow, Shadow Complex, and the Infinity Blade trilogy), which was eventually acquired by Epic. One of the Mustard's latest roles was to oversee the production process of the popular battle royale game Fortnite.

"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," wrote Mustard. "I am especially proud of the opportunity I’ve had to help create and shape Fortnite."
