Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Executive Producer Haden Blackman Leaves LucasArts

6
Haden Blackman, producer and writer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and executive producer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, tendered his resignation with LucasArts today, after thirteen years with the studio.

Blackman briefly explained his decision to IGN:

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.

A LucasArts representative also informed IGN that Blackman's departure won't affect The Force Unleashed 2's development.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is currently slated for an October 26 release on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, and Nintendo DS.
