Haden Blackman, the man behind The Force Unleashed, has resigned from LucasArts reports IGN. I’m rather shocked to hear this news because I met with Haden on Tuesday in the Presidio to talk about The Force Unleashed II and all seemed fine in TFU land. I guess not.
“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.”
Haden spent 13 years at Lucas working on several titles, including Galaxies and Force Commander. Blackman also wrote a few comic books and EU books.
