LucasArts branded 'a mess' as another exec walks

Company president Paul Meegan adds to string of departures

Another key executive at LucasArts has departed from the company, just weeks after the group lost its key development head Clint Hocking.


Company president Paul Meegan is the latest person to depart, adding to a long line of executives that have quit senior positions at LucasArts.

The frequency in which LucasArts sheds executives has become a running discussion point within industry circles, though the reasons why this happens remain unclear.

Outspoken games developer George Broussard branded the studio as "a mess".

LucasArts has said that Hocking's departure will not affect its current production schedules on games such as Star Wars 1313.

"Paul has been a valuable member of the Lucasfilm leadership team and we wish him the best in his future endeavors," read a company statement issues to GamesIndustry International.

"We remain committed to our current projects and will be re-evaluating LucasArts' leadership needs to ensure that we make the right decisions to keep the studio focused," the company added.
