Clint Hocking leaves Valve

Reports indicate he was working on Left 4 Dead 3.

Clint Hocking, the man behind Far Cry 2 and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, has departed Valve, where he's worked since July 2012.

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.
