Star Wars 1313 creative director back with Sony

Wednesday, 8th January 2014 22:48 GMT By Brenna Hillier

One time Sony Europe designer Dominic Robilliard has returned to the Japanese giant’s bosom.

IGN reports Robilliard has signed on with SCE America as a design director.

The news was broken via a LinkedIn update, which did not reveal which of SCE America’s studios Robilliard will work at, nor which project he will contribute to.

Robilliard was creative director on Star Wars 1313, but has been at something of a loose end since it was cancelled and Lucasarts dismantled.

Prior to this, he worked as a designer at SCE Europe on The Getaway.

    Why should we care?

    Who is this guy? All we know is that he’s been involved in a game which no one saw enough of to have ANY kind of opinion on (and The Getaway.. LOL) then was cancelled and it certainly can’t be proven that it wasn’t because the design was shite.

    Tell you what Brenna.. wait till this guy has ANY SORT of reputation.. THEN you might be able to hail it as news.

    But as it stands… you could have boiled the article down even more.

    SOME DUDE GOT A JOB AT SONY. n/t.

    This constant cult of personality make me want to vomit. It’s as if you are tryng to intro this guy as some kind of face. Wait til he actually does something before holding him up and trying to make out he’s news worthy. It’s not as if he’s bringing the SW franchise with him… THAT would be news.

    He was the Creative Director of one of the most promising Star Wars games in recent memory (which had more than a little Uncharted about it), and his return to part of Sony who cover both Santa Monica and Naughty Dog is very interesting news for anyone with a passing interest in VIDEO GAME DEVELOPMENT.

    This isn’t about the cult of celebrity, it’s about potential gaming talent going to a studio full of other gaming talent, which will inevitably lead to something worth paying attention to.

    If you’re going to try and be a smart ass, at least be smart about it.
