Sergiy Galyonkin, director of publishing strategy at Epic Games – and creator of Steam analytics website Steam Spy – has announced his departure from the Fortnite maker after nearly eight years, saying he is “not a good fit” for the “new version of Epic”.
Galyonkin’s career in the games industry spans more than two decades but he gained renown after establishing Steam Spy in 2015, a project he continued to run after joining Epic as Eastern European head of publishng in 2016. A year later, Galyonkin became the company’s director of publishing strategy, with a specific focus on Epic’s store, and he’s remained in that role since.
Now, though, Galyonkin has revealed his time at the company is over. “Today is officially my last day at Epic Games,” he wrote in a statement shared on Twitter. “These eight years have been some of the most exciting in my career, and I am deeply grateful to my former Epic Games colleagues and Tim Sweeney for allowing me to help build Epic 4.0.”
