Single Player Star Wars Game Shelved After Uncharted Creator Leaves EA

Star Wars: Amy Hennig left EA after

Amy Hennig, who was the creative director of Visceral's Star Wars project before the studio was shuttered last October, left EA in January and is moving into indie development. The former creative director of Naughty Dog had become the face of Visceral Games and the now-canceled Star Wars project, but some speculated that she might remain an EA employee after the closure of the studio. I'm hoping to bring some people on board'.

Otherwise, Hennig stated that she is "not doing anything Star Wars", and explained that her project is "on the shelf now", as we learned from EA itself earlier this year when it revealed that it would be pivoting the design of the game under the wing of EA Vancouver to a new design that incorporates more open-world, online elements.

She also commented that EA Vancouver is now working on something that's different from what they wanted to do with the game.

The elimination of Germany in the first round and several teams failing to shine has left the World Cup wide open. But they are not the first - in 1998 France won it but were eliminated in the group stages in 2002.

The reason for Hennig's months of silence about her departure (which she did not clarify as either a resignation or termination) boiled down to waiting for the right time, she told Purchese. "Everybody loved what we were doing and I'd love to see us resurrect that somehow, but it's complicated". Unfortunately, it seems that project may not ever surface, at least not in its originally intended form, as Hennig has revealed that she left EA back in January, and is no longer involved in its development. It makes it sound like I just went home! "I just started my own small little independent indie studio and am consulting with some people", Hennig said. The publisher's research pushed the new studio to drop the linear approach in favour of something more replayable and lasting, which Hennig describes as "pretty different" from the original vision. "Once you go more open world it's such a different game to the one we were making". "Yes, Amy Hennig has moved on from Electronic Arts", a spokesperson said. "We wish Amy all the best with what comes next, and we will all be watching with excitement".

So, what's next? Well, apparently Titanfall developers Respawn are working on a single player game called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
