The Force Unleashed II producer resigns from LucasArts

The Force Unleashed II executive producer and writer Haden Blackman has announced he has parted ways with LucasArts after spending the past 13 years working for the company.

Chatting with IGN, Blackman commented, "I’ve had a fantastic time working with the team at Lucasfilm and am really grateful for their ongoing support," adding, "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."

Fortunately, LucasArts has revealed that Blackman’s departure should not have any adverse affect on the finishing stages of The Force Unleashed II’s development. The game itself is due out on October 26.
