Clint Hocking entered the game industry working for Ubisoft Montreal in July of 2001, when he began his career as a Level Designer on the original SPLINTER CELL. During development he also took on the roles of Game Designer and Scriptwriter. Splinter Cell was nominated for seven Game Developer’s Choice Awards (including nominations for Excellence in Level Design, Game Design and Scriptwriting). Along with writer JT Petty, Clint was honoured for his writing work on the title with the first-ever Game Developer’s Choice Award for Excellence in Scriptwriting.

Clint continued to develop the Splinter Cell franchise as Lead Level Designer, Scriptwriter, and Creative Director on SPLINTER CELL: CHAOS THEORY – the highest rated Splinter Cell to date with an aggregate review score of 94%. Clint next took on the role of Creative Director on FAR CRY 2, a controversial title that took players into the ‘Heart of Darkness’ of a fully realized African state torn apart by civil war. Both innovative and acclaimed, Far Cry 2 was another hit for Ubisoft.

Clint left his position with Ubisoft in May, 2010 after nearly nine years and worked in San Francisco and Seattle at LucasArts, Valve, and Amazon between 2010 and 2015 before returning once again to Ubisoft in Toronto where he worked as the Creative Director on the innovative Watch Dogs: Legion. In 2021, he returned to Ubisoft's Montreal Studio where he is the Creative Director on the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Codename Hexe.

In addition to working as a game developer, Clint is also active in the game development community, and is a vocal proponent of games as an emerging medium and art form. He has served on the Advisory Board for the Game Developers Conference since 2008, where he helps evaluate and select content for the conference, and mentors speakers as they develop their presentations.

Before games Clint worked as a writer in the web industry and experimented in independent filmmaking as a writer and a producer. Clint has a diploma in Visual Fine Arts from Langara College in Vancouver, Canada, and holds a B.F.A. and an M.F.A in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia.
