Clint Hocking Is Now At Valve And Has Taken A Photo

The internet has decided that a picture on Clint Hocking's twitter feed of his son at Valve's industrial heart is confirmation that the Far Cry 2 designer is now absolutely definitely working for the Half Life honchos and most probably turning Episode Three into a work of divisive genius that throws out the baby and the bathwater, and then replaces them with something far more awesome than a tiny, dirty human. Maybe he's just consulting, maybe he's visiting a friend, but as he left his post at Lucasarts a couple of weeks back for "something new" the internet may well be right on this one. So, Clint Hocking is now lead designer of all development at Valve.

I'm excited by this because I like it when there are lots of brilliant people under one roof and, whatever you might think about Far Cry 2, you're at least a bit wrong and my view that it's two shades short of a masterpiece is more accurate.

The concern is, if he didn't complete a project in his time at Lucasarts, how long will he have to work in Valve time to deliver the goods?
