Many Star Wars games fans have been critical over Electronic Art’s handling of the series. Electronic Arts have produced and published more multiplayer focus Star Wars games like Battlefield 2 and The Old Republic MMO series. Fans have been looking forward to a story focused Star Wars game similar to the Knights of the Old Republic Series. Unfortunately, fans will have to keep waiting as Amy Hennig, the former Uncharted creator who moved the EA to work on a story based Star Wars Game, has left the company.
Amy Hennig had left EA in January but only recently announced it. She joined Visceral (EA’s subsidiary gaming company) in 2014 to work on a new Star Wars game. Visceral was closed by EA in October 2017 and the project was moved to another studio. During an interview with Eurogamer, she stated she has moved on to start her new independent studio.
“So yeah, I’m not doing anything Star Wars. And, who knows what the future may hold, but that project is on the shelf now.
The game and concept were not moved to any part of EA’s studios throughout the world and “the Vancouver studio is working on something pretty different,” stated Hennig. Perhaps Respawn Entertainment will restart Henning’s project considering their purchase from EA last year.
