Dominic Robilliard, the creative director on LucasArts’ promising but now defunct Star Wars 1313 project, is now working for Sony Computer Entertainment of America.

IGN spotted an update to Robilliard’s LinkedIn profile, which says that he joined Sony Computer Entertainment America as a design director in July of last year, following Disney’s decision to transition LucasArts to a licensing house and layoff the entire development staff.

This actually marks the second time Robilliard has shacked up with Sony. Before joining LucasArts in 2008, he was a designer at SCEE’s Team Soho, which worked on The Getaway franchise.

It’s unclear what project Robilliard has been working on for Sony—or even what studio he’s a part of. While there are numerous studios under the SCEA banner, only one, SCE Foster City Studio is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Robilliard’s profile says he still resides. Foster City has traditionally been a support studio, overseeing and assisting in the development of first-party games like Resistance, inFamous, and Uncharted. If Robilliard has in fact joined that studio as a design director, it might mean they’re finally taking the lead on a title of their own.
