Force Unleashed II’s Executive Producer Quits!
Haden Blackman, the man responsible for keeping Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II on track and writer for the series has decided to move onto greener pastures according to IGN. After 13 solid years at Lucas Arts working on titles such as Star Wars: Galaxies, Star Wars: Force Commander and of course the Force Unleashed series he has left. The reason given for the departure was :-
“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.”
According to Gamepro Lucas Arts themselves bare no grudge against Haden and have stated:-
“After 13 years of service, Haden Blackman has resigned from LucasArts. From launching Behind the Magic to delivering Star Wars: The Force Unleashed I and II, Haden has been an invaluable member of the team during his tenure with the company. We are extremely grateful for his many contributions, fully support him in his new endeavors and wish him all the best in the future.”
Despite this change Lucas Arts are adamant that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II will continue to run on schedule and be released during October. This will be good news to most but what will Haden do next?
