In a surprise move LucasArts president Simon Jeffery has quit his position at the company, stating that he plans to return to Britain to be with his family. No further information was given on the cause of his departure, which will see the company’s president of finance and administration, Mike Nelson replacing Jeffery on a temporary basis. The move is seen as curious since Jeffery has overseen a clear turnaround in the profits and quality of LucasArts titles over the last year, although rumors have claimed that internal disagreement over non-Star Wars projects has upset many long-term employees. It has been suggested that this was the one of the primary reasons for Hal Barwood’s departure from the company last month.
