Clint Hocking Exit Shocking 30 Jun, 2012 / 11 comments

It is being widely reported that high-profile LucasArts employee Clint Hocking (Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Far Cry 2) has left LucasArts.

Clint Hocking is no longer working at LucasArts. The man behind the original Splinter Cell, Chaos Theory, and Far Cry 2 was working on an unannounced project for LucasArts (said to be something other than Star Wars 1313) as creative lead. In his surprisingly concise announcement post (Hocking's known for his verbosity), he said, "I recently left my job at LucasArts and am moving on to something new."


What this means for the unannounced project he was working on is anyone's guess, but given LucasArts' track record we can probably expect a wave of redundancies to follow.

    I think we have a winner for best headline of 2012.

    One can only presume "creative differences" came into play with Hocking(?). Or maybe Kathleen Kennedy doesn't like LucasArts?
