Force Unleashed Sequel Announced

Haden Blackman, executive producer and writer of The Force Unleashed and The Force Unleashed 2, resigned from Lucasarts yesterday. He had been at the company for thirteen years.

Judging from a brief statement given to the press, Blackman and Lucas' parting is amicable:

"I've had a fantastic time working with the team at Lucasfilm and am really grateful for their ongoing support," Blackman said in a brief  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.

The departure won't affect development of tentpole release Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. The game is still slated to come out in October, and still features Boba Fett:

Blackman will join other recent top LucasArts execs like ex-president Darrell Rodriguez who recently left the company for greener pastures back in May. The frustrating thing about executive employment shuffling is that "fans" will probably never get the real stories of what's going on behind those boardroom doors. These suit-dudes are way too smart/cagey to go blabbing their internal secrets to mere mortals.
