Force Unleashed Producer Haden Blackman Resigns…
Well, this is an unexpected turn of events. As everyone probably already knows by now (I’m a little late posting this), Force Unleashed producer Haden Blackman has resigned from LucasArts.. why you ask yourselves? Well, apparently he felt a disturbance in the force and that it is the best time for him to move on. They say that this will have no effect on The Force Unleashed 2’s release.
Things have been really slow with any Battlefront 3 news as well, hence the lack of posts here. I do hate not posting, so if anyone has any tidbits or anything that is newsworthy, feel free to drop me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
“The executive producer and writer of the Force Unleashed videogame series, Haden Blackman, resigned from LucasArts today after spending 13 years with the studio, the company confirmed to IGN.
Blackman has been credited with working on several titles over the years, including the Force Unleashed I and II, Star Wars: Galaxies, and Star Wars: Force Commander. He also helped write and produce a number of Star Wars books and comics.
“I’ve had a fantastic time working with the team at Lucasfilm and am really grateful for their ongoing support,” Blackman said in a statement.
“While the decision to leave LucasArts did not happen overnight or come easily, I really feel that now is the best time for me to move on and explore new creative challenges and I look forward to the next phase of my career.”
The Force Unleashed II is currently set for release this October. A LucasArts representative said Blackman’s departure will not affect the game’s development.”
