The news was confirmed on both Hocking's LinkedIn profile and Click Nothing blog where he noted that he was "a designer and level designer" at the Seattle-based studio.

Hocking's recent career path has been a bit of a mystery as the famed developer left Ubisoft in spring 2010 to become a creative director at LucasArts where he "worked on unannounced projects." While it's uncertain what Hocking did at Valve, Valvetime reported that Hocking's name was attached to the as-yet-unannounced Left 4 Dead 3 in an a database leak from October.

We've contacted Hocking to see if we can gather any info on where he's off to next and will update as we hear back.
