Far Cry 2 creative director quits Valve

Clint Hocking leaves Half-Life studio after 17 months with the company.

Hocking previously worked at Ubisoft as creative director, contributing to titles like Far Cry 2 and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. He left Ubisoft in 2010 and spent two years working at the now-shuttered LucasArts on an unannounced project.

Hocking joined Valve in July 2012 and served as a designer at the studio, though it is unclear what specifically he worked on at the company. Gamasutra claims he was part of the division working on the long-rumored Left 4 Dead 3, but this is not confirmed.
