LucasArts has just confirmed to Kotaku that Jim Ward, longtime Lucas worker bee and current president of LucasArts, has resigned from the company "for personal reasons" and will be leaving LucasArts in a couple of weeks.
Ward, who began his career in advertising, started work at LucasFilm in 1997 as the head of their marketing division. In 2004 Ward was named president of LucasArts.
No word yet on the reasoning behind his seemingly sudden departure or where he will land, but we'll keep you up to date here.
Update: We've spoken with LucasArts about Ward's notice and gotten a comment from Ward.
