The upcoming Star Wars project in development by Visceral Games has been boosted by an addition to their team. Amy Hennig has given the new Star Wars game some Unchartered aid by joining the project since leaving Naughty Dog earlier this year.
Hennig was the creative director of the Unchartered franchise but left Naughty Dog in dubious circumstances, reportedly being turfed out by other lead developers. Hennig’s experience and skill made her a prime candidate for many studio’s projects; however Visceral Games has been the lucky recruiter this time around.
New Star Wars video games have not been doing very well of late, since LucasArts was closed down the Star Wars 1313 project was abandoned. Hennig is a big fan of Star Wars which made this job naturally appealing, her track record on the Unchartered series bodes well for this upcoming game which will likely be developed to the strengths of the PS4 and Xbox One.
Little is known about the upcoming Star Wars game but its launch may coincide with the release of the new movie which is targeting a December 2015 arrival. What are your thoughts on Hennig joining this Star Wars project, will the game be taken in the right direction?
