Uncharted Creator Amy Hennig Starting Indie Studio, Looking at Opportunities with VR

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.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
