Blackley has represented the likes of Ken Levine, Insomniac Games and Respawn Entertainment during his eight-year spell at Hollywood firm Creative Artists Agency.

The experienced industry professional “plans to launch a production company to develop new games” according to a Variety news article.

He is also well known for pushing through Harmonix’s multimillion-dollar sale to Viacom, and in earlier years for his work on the original Xbox.
