Amy Hennig, the creative director and writer of the incredibly popular Uncharted series who recently stepped down from her position, has found a new job making a Star Wars game.
Amy will be joining Visceral Games, known for the acclaimed Dead Space series; she’ll serve as the creative director for an unnanounced Star Wars title the team is working on.
Amy has long been recognized as one of our industry’s top visionaries, and is coming off an amazing run as the Writer and Creative Director of the Uncharted franchise”, Steve Papoutsis, Vice President of Visceral Games, wrote in an announcement made on EA.com. “Over the last few weeks, Amy and I have spent a lot of time talking about what her first project would be. There are a lot of different directions we could have gone, but I could sense that what really excited her about this opportunity (because let’s face it, we weren’t the only ones knocking at her door) was Star Wars. Amy’s a huge fan. We happen to be making a Star Wars game. Just thinking about the possibilities made both of us even more excited about having her join the team.”
In addition to the Uncharted series, Amy has worked with Crystal Dynamics on The Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.
