EA Snags Uncharted Writer Amy Hennig For Star Wars Game

A post on EA's corporate site says that the woman who helped give Naughty Dog's Uncharted series its distinctive feel will be working on Star Wars for the Battlefield publisher.

Hennig's move to EA comes after a parting of ways with Naughty Dog that took many surprise, so much so that the studio issued a statement saying that Hennig wasn't forced out. Here's a snippet from the EA statement:

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.

Hennig's been tweeting about her new job too:

EA has multiple Star Wars projects in the works, including a new entry in the Battlefront franchise and a possible open-world game set in the seminal sci-fi universe. It's not clear which of these Hennig will be in charge of. Kotaku will update this news as we get more information.


    I still want my 1313, that was shaping up to be a great game if you ask me

      But it was just going to be Boba Fett the game in the end.

        I don't see the problem. AT ALL

          Boba Fett is way overplayed, and completely ruined by the prequels.

      With Hennig on the franchise that might still happen - especially since 1313 was looking like an Uncharted ripoff in the Star Wars universe (not necessarily a bad thing mind you!)

        Dark Forces was a really good Star Wars version of a Doom clone. Also, the Phase I Dark Troopers looked like the T-800.

    It would be nice to see some modern day xwing vs tie fighter kind of action in this new title.

      This too! I still play X-wing Alliance to this day because its so much fun

    SICK! I friggan love Amy and all her work. Add Star Wars to the mix and bam, this will be awesome.

    So am I the only one who wants to see an Uncharted-esque Indiana Jones game?
