Sony has hired Star Wars 1313 creative director Dominic Robilliard, who has joined Sony Computer Entertainment America as a design director for an unspecified project. Robilliard's arrival at Sony comes after the closure of LucasArts last year, at which time it was believed that Star Wars 1313 had been canceled.

The news comes from Robilliard's LinkedIn page, which unfortunately does not provide any additional information pertaining to what he is now working on at SCEA or which studio specifically he is working for. Some options include Uncharted developer Naughty Dog, God of War outfit Sony Santa Monica, or Sony Bend.

We've reached out to Sony regarding Robilliard's employment status at the company.

Robilliard is no stranger to Sony, as he worked as a lead designer at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for a period of more than six years from 2001-2008. During his former run with Sony, he worked on franchises like The Getaway and the canceled PlayStation 3 game 8 Days.

A man of unproven quality in my eyes, so not sure how excited I should be about this.

Damn. I was hoping EA picked up the remaining staff from 1313 to help finish the game with members from Visceral Games.

One of the best looking games ever dropped and I was seriously anticipating its awesomeness. Disney are fools for not pursuing it to completion. Good to see Dominic rebounded.

Still the best looking game never released on next gen, u can say all u want about crysis 3, NBA 2K14 on next gen and even upcoming witcher 3, this short clip simply just blows them out of the water

I hate it when games that look good get canceled.
