Ex-Uncharted creator and EA Star Wars game developer Amy Hennig is starting an indie studio following Visceral’s Entertainment’s closure last October.
Hennig told Eurogamer that, as of January, she is no longer working as creative director of the unannounced Star Wars project as she has parted ways with EA.
The negative news was hard for her, but Hennig assures that she has been extremely busy since she left EA.
“I just started my own small little independent studio and am consulting with some people. I’m hoping to bring some people on board, I would love to have a little company of about six to eight people, 15 at the most, and do some more projects, do some VR stuff—I’m consulting with some VR companies and doing a ton of research because I haven’t played a lot to immerse myself in it,” Hennig said.
Furthermore, Hennig says that the Star Wars project she had been working on is now “on the shelf” and that EA’s “Vancouver studio is working on something pretty different.”
Thus, Visceral’s vision of a Star Wars single-player seems to have been canned, but at least Hennig will be bringing her talents to the industry once more sometime in the future.
