According to a representative, all current projects will continue on like before. Before a new president is appointed, Kevin Parker and Gio Corsi, will co-lead the studio. Not long ago LucasArts lost their creative director, Clint Hocking to Valve.
“Paul has been a valuable member of the Lucasfilm leadership team and we wish him the best in his future endeavors,” said COO Mich Chau. “We remain committed to our current projects and will be re-evaluating LucasArts’ leadership needs to ensure that we make the right decisions to keep the studio focused.”
What do you think of Meegan’s resignation?
Apparently the job applications are for a so-far untitled FPS title.
“As Senior Core Engineer, you will be the engine level specialist responsible for implementing cutting edge features and optimizations on current and Future Generation console and PC hardware. Your work is the foundation that allows our gameplay engineers and content creators to bring their game vision to life.”
“The Senior Animator is responsible for the creation of character animations that meets the originality, creative and technical quality standards of LucasFilm.”
Speculations have been running rampant, many wondering on what this mysterious title is. Some speculate that it’s the project Clint Hocking was working on, others wish it to be a continuation of the KoToR series (highly unlikely), or perhaps Republic Commando 2.
I suppose we all just have to wait and see.
LucasArts Creative Director, Clint Hocking, has resigned from the studio.
Previously Hocking worked at Ubisoft on titles such as Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Far Cry 2. He later on joined LucasArts in 2010 and worked on multiple of projects, all unnamed.
The announcement came through Hocking’s own blog, Clicknothing.com.
“Yup, that’s right, you heard it here first. Unless you heard it somewhere else first.
I recently left my job at LucasArts and am moving on to something new. Unlike last time, (and mercifully less wordy) I already have something lined up and I am currently in the process of dealing with the living hell of relocation.
I will let the world know where I am going once I get there. Unless you already know.”
What are your feelings about this announcement?
