Former LucasArts president returns home to Epic
Paul Meegan, the Epic China founder who departed for what ended up being a short stint as the president of LucasArts, is back at Epic in a new role.
The company announced today that Meegan is its new vice president of product development, working directly with Epic's executive and development teams on products including its Unreal Engine.
When he departed LucasArts in August
, Meegan was the third president to do so in just over four years. He was overseeing development of the new "dark and mature" Star Wars 1313
franchise, a game which LucasArts' new owner Disney says is still coming to market despite the company's focus on social and mobile development over the traditional console space.
