Another High Level Employee at LucasArts DepartsCategory: Gaming

It has barely been a month, but already two high level LucasArts employees have left. The middle of July saw Clint Hocking, former creative director at LucasArts, take a position at Valve and now LucasArts president Paul Meegan has left as well. Meegan had been with LucasArts since 2010, where he oversaw the launch of LEGO Star Wars III and the reveal of Star Wars 1313. The studio announced all production on current titles will stay on track, but still it is odd to have two high level employees leave in such a short time. LucasArts has yet to name a replacement for Meegan, but said Kevin Parker and Gio Corsi have stepped up to co-lead for the time being. Parker will oversee the business operations while Corsi will focus on game production.
Meegan thanked everyone at LucasArts for having the opportunity to work there and said there are other exciting projects in the works, with the big one being Star Wars 1313. He did not reveal exactly where he will be landing next, but I cannot imagine Meegan will be looking for work for very long. Meegan previously worked for Epic Games China and Ubisoft.
