Amy Hennig‘s Star Wars project isn’t coming back, according to the legendary Uncharted developer. She recently revealed her project is on the shelf as she heads her own way. Hennig vows to remain independent, shooting down rumors of banding together with the old Uncharted team at Naughty Dog.
She confirmed that not only the game was canceled, EA killed her contract with the company. After her departure from EA, there were many rumors of her getting back together with Naughty Dog to work on the next Uncharted game. Discussing her future, Amy announced her plans of “staying independent.”
At EA, a story focused Star Wars game was in development under Amy Hennig. Due to EA’s focus on live-services online multiplayer-centric games like Battlefront 2, Amy’s project is scrapped.
The game is still in development though but it is redesigned to support live-services. In a recent job listing, EA mentioned its plans with the in question Star Wars game. While multiplayer redesign took place, the story remains a prime focus.
Work with the Creative Director, Game Director and Lead Writer to align all connected features with the single-player narrative and gameplay into a cohesive experience
Meanwhile, another Star Wars game is currently under development at Respawn Entertainment, the creators of Titanfall. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order will hit PS4, Xbox One, and PC in holiday 2019.
The game was announced at E3 2018 during EA’s press conference. It was announced in a rather awkward fashion, no teaser trailer or images, not even a logo. Vince Zampella sat in the audience and announced Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order to the host of the show. It is one of the most awkward situations in E3 history, a great clip for E3 cringe compilation.
