Those speculating on where Clint Hocking, former Ubisoft Montreal creative director, would end up can be put to rest today. Hocking has taken a job at Lucas Arts as creative director on an upcoming and as-of-yet unannounced project. Hocking left Ubisoft Montreal after serving as the company’s creative director for nearly nine years. Hocking made his intentions to leave the company publicly on his blog earlier this year, saying: "I am too comfortable. I am too content. And I know where that can lead for me. Fortunately, for the first time in my life, I know the way forward," he wrote in May on his personal blog.
Today LucasArts confirmed that the man who helped steer such franchises as Splinter Cell and Far Cry was now working at the company:
"We are pleased to announce that Clint Hocking has joined LucasArts as creative director on an unannounced project," a LucasArts representative told GameSpot.
Hopefully we’ll hear more about this project that Hocking is working on and why he thought it was important enough to jump ship to LucasArts.
