One of the brains behind the Far Cry and Splinter Cell series has joined LucasArts to work on an unannounced game.

Ex-Ubisoft Montreal creative director Clint Hocking left the Canadian publisher earlier this year.

Overnight Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II developer LucasArts confirmed Hocking has joined its ranks.

"We are pleased to announce that Clint Hocking has joined LucasArts as creative director on an unannounced project," a LucasArts rep told GameSpot.

If Hocking isn't working on the Kinect-exclusive Star Wars game shown at E3 2010 in June and due out in 2011, what is he working on?

As we scratch our heads, let's watch the cracking The Force Unleashed II trailer and reminisce over 2008's excellent open world shooter Far Cry 2.
