Amy Hennig is a well-known personality in the game industry who has directed the first three Uncharted titles and was also working on a Star Wars title at VIsceral Games before the studio was closed down, and now the former Uncharted director has revealed her insecurities about not being able to release a game since 2011.
Speaking during Polygon’s 2017 Year in Review coverage, Former Uncharted director, Amy Hennig, expressed that nothing she has worked on since 2011 has been published which is killing her.
I haven’t had something published since 2011, and it’s killing me. I worked on Uncharted 4 for two and a half years, and then I worked on the Star Wars game for three and a half years. A lot of the work, thankfully, lived on in U4, and we’ll see what happens with the Star Wars thing.
She added that she is 53 years old and doesn’t want to waste any more time saying that she has worked on 15 games in 28 and not all of them saw a release.
“I’ve worked on probably 15 games or something like that, over 28 years. Not all of them got published. But now I look at it and go, ‘Well, if a game takes three, four, five years to make, and I’m 53, how many at-bats do I have left?’ And you don’t want to waste those.”
“But you think, ‘OK, wait a second. It was that easy to burn six years and not publish anything.’ So I look at it and go … ‘how many bullets do I have left in the chamber?’ I want to make sure that I make the right choices.”
However, Amy Hennig didn’t reveal any plans for the future or what will be the next project she will be working on.
