LA President James Ward Resigns

Published Feb 3, 2008

Various sites (including gamespot) have reported that LucasArts President (since 2004) James Ward has decided to resign from his post, citing personal reasons.

According to the article:

"Ward will be replaced on an interim basis by Howard Roffman, a 25-year veteran of the LucasFilm organization. Roffman has most recently been serving as the company's head of licensing and legal, where he has spent years working with the gaming division. According to the representative, a search for Ward's permanent replacement has already begun. Under Ward's direction, LucasArts enjoyed some success publishing original games such as the first Mercenaries game and the Thrillville series, but it has thrived by sticking to the old standards. By LucasArts' own assessment, Star Wars: Battlefront II is the most successful game in the franchise's history, and Ward's tenure has also produced hits such as Knights of the Old Republic II, Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, and the PlayStation Portable exclusive Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron."

Please visit the site for the rest of the article. Good luck, Mr. Ward!
