2K has formed an all new San Francisco-based studio entitled Hangar 13, publisher Take-Two has announced.

Led by former LucasArts' Star Wars executive producer and writer Haden Blackman, Hangar 13 is working on an as-of-yet unannounced next-generation title.

Blackman led development on many Star Wars projects, but his most well known work is penning the script for The Force Unleashed and its sequel, though he also played a heavy hand in producing Star Wars: Galaxies.

Outside of video games, Blackman is known as a comic book scribe, who's penned DC's recent Batwoman run and he's currently writing Elektra for Marvel. He certainly sounds like a busy man.

"At Hangar 13, our mantra is 'Every player story is unique,'" said Blackman. "Our ambition is to create next-generation games that allow players to shape their own experiences, from the moment-to-moment gameplay, to the long-term impact on the world, characters and narrative. To realise this goal, we're building proprietary technology and assembling a core team passionate about delivering mature experiences loaded with meaningful choices."

"It was an easy choice bringing on a talented creative mind and proven leader like Haden Blackman to head our new 2K studio," said 2K president Christoph Hartmann. "Under Blackman's direction, Hangar 13 will lead the charge in creating some of the most memorable AAA experiences of this generation."
