“I think credit is really important, and it’s really fucking cheap – pardon my French. 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. What we do [at Epic] is if someone’s a programmer on a game but doesn’t stay until the end – the end’s the hard part – we’ll just call them ‘additional programming’ as opposed to programmer. But we absolutely still credit them, because it’s free to us and I want the guys here to know that if they ever left they would never be cut out of the credits. It’s just common courtesy, really.” – Epic president Mike Capps to IndustryGamers regarding LA Noire credits scandal.
