Hey Battlefrontains.. there has been absolutely no news since the announcement of Star Wars: 1313, which doesn’t really come to a big surprise, as every year after E3, we all get disappointed.. and then there always seems to be a long period where there is nothing. This year is certainly no different.
In the world of LucasArts though, creative director Clint Hocking has decided to take his leave from the company and seek employment elsewhere. Can’t say as I blame him, I would have left too after realizing they were putting out another game that wasn’t Battlefront 3.
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.
This “unnannounced project” was probably Star Wars: 1313, I am assuming, unless anyone else has heard otherwise?
In other events, Borman has posted up some more great videos on the late, great Battlefront 3, Free Radical style!
