Rod started working at Microsoft in 1996 before moving to Epic Games in 2005 where he was part of the original Gears of War team. He also worked at Irrational during the development of Bioshock Infinite. He managed the team at Epic Games and then later at Microsoft’s Coalition after the company opened the first-party studio.

Rod Fergusson has played a crucial role at not only Microsoft but also propelling the Gears of War series into what it is today. Gears 5 is one of the best games on the Microsoft platform.
