Uncharted Creator Amy Hennig Is Working on a New Star Wars Game
Star Wars gamers may recall that Uncharted creator Amy Hennig was developing a third-person game codenamed Project Ragtag for EA just over half a decade ago. While that game failed to come to fruition, Hennig is getting a second chance to create a new Star Wars game. Via Deadline, Lucasfilm Games and Hennig’s Skydance New Media are collaborating on “a richly cinematic action-adventure game featuring an original story in the legendary Star Wars galaxy.”
“I’ve often described how seeing Star Wars in 1977 essentially rewired my 12-year-old brain, shaping my creative life and future indelibly,” said Hennig in a statement. “I’m elated to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love.”
Lucasfilm Games Vice President Douglas Reilly also added a statement of his own.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working again with Amy,” said Reilly. “She and the Skydance New Media team have the talent and ambition to create a unique Star Wars adventure. Their vision for making inviting, cinematic interactive entertainment makes this collaboration very exciting. We’re working hard with their team of experienced and talented developers, and we’re looking forward to sharing more with Star Wars fans when the time is right.”
While Project Ragtag was developed as a title for EA, that company has no involvement with the new title being developed by Skydance New Media. Hennig’s gaming industry career goes back over three decades, and includes her work on the Legacy of Kain series. She was the creative director and writer for Naughty Dog’s first three Uncharted games. She also wrote Square Enix’s upcoming roleplaying game, Forspoken.
Skydance New Media Executive Vice President Julian Beak added that “We couldn’t be happier to be working with Lucasfilm Games. We look forward to taking fans on an epic journey with this Star Wars action-adventure title.”
