Hocking joins LucasArts as creative director

Designer behind Splinter Cell and Far Cry joins Star Wars publisher

Long-time Ubisoft employee Clint Hocking has joined Stars Wars games developer LucasArts as creative director.

Hocking left Ubisoft in May, citing the need to break away from bad habits and complacency.

"We are pleased to announce that Clint Hocking has joined LucasArts as creative director on an unannounced project," said the company to Gamespot.

As creative director at Ubisoft, Hocking worked on Splinter Cell, sequel Chaos Theory and Far Cry 2, which between them shipped 12 million units.

LucasArts is currently working on Stars Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 and an unnamed Star Wars project for Microsoft's Kinect system.
