The lights are on
Update: Hocking has joined Valve Software. He gave no indication what project he's working on.
LucasArts creative director Clint Hocking announced he left his position at the company. He joined LucasArts after leaving Ubisoft in May 2010.
"I recently left my job at LucasArts and am moving on to something new," Hocking said on his blog. "Unlike last time, I already have something lined up and I am currently in the process of dealing with the living hell of relocation."
He spent the last two years working on an unannounced project for LucasArts. His time at Ubisoft lasted 9 years where he served as game director on the original Splinter Cell and creative director on Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Far Cry 2.
Hard to be creative in such an established franchise
They need to do better than the force unleashed games. Maybe it is hard to bring fresh ideas to Lucas arts.
I wonder if it was Battlefront 3.
Never was a fan of LucasArts games and it seems like they're falling behind a bit.
If what I have heard about the lucasarts team is true this might be a good thing...might be.
I wonder what projects he was working on and with him only being there two years I wonder if he even got one finished.
(Sigh). The Star Wars universe is already messed up and then this happens. I hope that 1313 is turned into trash because of this. It might be the sole thing that might get Star Wars some respect again. I don't blame Hocking, though.
LucasArts is collapsing and are giving us crappy games nobody cares about.... great
