Back during EVO 2015, Mark "MarkMan" Julio -- Community and Sponsorship Manager at Mad Catz -- announced his impending departure from the company.

"This is probably going to be my last EVO with Mad Catz... After I complete the Street Fighter 5 range of products and help launch them to market, I will be taking a seat back from gaming and focusing on other passions," Julio explained.

With Street Fighter 5's release now upon us, it seems that the fighting game peripheral expert has now officially parted ways with Mad Catz.

We reached out to MarkMan for further comment after he was laid off from the company.

"I was let go on good terms, they knew I wanted to leave," Mark told us. "So it was just the right time. I have nothing but love for Mad Catz, and I'm proud of what we accomplished for a community that I love during my 8 years there."
MarkMan assured us that he'll still be very much involved with the fighting game community going forward. "I'm going to be working with everyone now," he said.

Last week, we learned that Mad Catz would be releasing 37% of their current workforce in an attempt to better their financial situation. Because of the company-wide restructuring, numerous high-level employees at Mad Catz have resigned, including former CEO Darren Richardson.

According to a recent Tweet from MarkMan, we can expect more information on what the future holds shortly.

Whatever Mark chooses to pursue, we here at EventHubs wish him the best of luck. Thank you, MarkMan, for all you've done for the fighting game community.
