Amy Hennig Leading New Star Wars Project At Visceral Games
EA has hired former Uncharted series Creative Director, Amy Hennig, for a new Star Wars game over at Visceral Games. The reasoning behind Amy Hennig’s departure of Naughty Dog is unclear, rumors say she was “forced out”. Regardless, the industry couldn’t be happier to have her around in game development following her excellent work on the Uncharted series. We wish her the best with EA and Visceral.
“As both a colleague and friend, I’ve always admired her approach to creative development – focusing on nailing down the soul of a game first, and then making sure the writing, the gameplay, the design and the art comes together to form a unified, interactive experience for the player,” – statement by Visceral Games VP & General Manager Steve Papoutsis.
