Force Unleashed creators form Fearless Studios
Haden Blackman joins fellow LucasArts vet Cedrick Collomb to form new game development house; projects TBA.
Haden Blackman recently wrapped his 12-year career at LucasArts, having led development on a range of titles at the Star Wars house, including creating and serving as senior executive producer on The Force Unleashed and its impending sequel. Today, Blackman's next venture came into focus, as he and fellow LucasArts veteran Cedrick Collomb announced the formation of a new development house, Marin, California-based Fearless Games.
Today's announcement offered little indication on the direction of Fearless Games. In a statement, Blackman said, "By taking bold creative risks and tackling new challenges, Fearless Studios will fuse the best of story and gameplay to immerse, engage, and affect players just as deeply as our favorite films and novels." Platforms or future development projects were not revealed.
As for its management structure, Blackman will serve as co-president and chief creative officer. Collomb will share Blackman's president title, as well as pick up the title of chief technical officer. In addition to serving as director of technology at LucasArts and LucasFilms, Collomb has been credited on such titles as EA's Black. Seahorn Capital Group founder Marc Jackson will serve as Fearless Games' acting CFO.
Fearless Studios is currently accepting resumes through its Web site.
