Uncharted Creator Amy Hennig Has Parted Ways With EA

Uncharted Creator Amy Hennig Has Parted Ways With EA

In a report from Eurogamer, Amy Hennig - the former Uncharted writer and director that became the creative lead on the recently-cancelled Star Wars project with EA and Visceral Games - shared with the outlet at the Gamelab Conference in Barcelona, Spain a few more details on the aftermath of her Star Wars project and what she will be doing next.

Hennig reveals in the interview that she had in fact left the company back in January of this year and is in the process of starting up her own, independent studio with a strong interest in developing virtual reality (VR) content.

"I'm not, I have not worked at EA since January, technically, legally. Yes". As far as her new studio is concerned, she shared that she is "consulting with some people" (including several VR companies) and that she hopes to begin bringing on employees to begin working on new projects, aiming for a small team at a max of 15 members.

So it looks as though we can expect to see some exciting stuff in the future from Amy Hennig but as for anything Star Wars related, it seems like that's a bit of a dead end for now.

Read between her carefully chosen words and it's not particularly hard to realize that EA was dead-set on making this game something it wasn't created to be.

Senegal finished level with Japan on points in their group, missing out on the knockout stages due to having more bookings. It referenced the murder of Colombian defender Andres Escobar following an own-goal at the 1994 World Cup .

"I'm working independently and staying independent".

"I'm not doing anything Star Wars", Hennig told Eurogamer. Until then, we do have at least one other Star Wars game in the works regarding our beloved Jedi. She mentioned that the studio was going for a "more open world" style of gameplay. Hennig also took to Twitter to clarify her statements. Instead, we will now have to rely on Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars title if Vancouver doesn't do Ragtag justice. EA said at the time that the game would offer "an original, authentic narrative in the Star Wars universe".

Hennig's position at EA has been debated since Visceral Games shut down in October, with her go-to response being that she was "in negotiations". Amy is an unbelievable storyteller-a crafter and a creator.

We didn't even know Hennig had left EA, never mind knowing any updates on the game, and now she's finally revealed what happened. We have so much respect for her and the creative spirit she brought to the teams and projects she worked on at EA.
