Skydance New Media, founded by Uncharted creator Amy Hennig, is working with Lucasfilm on a new action-adventure title in the Star Wars franchise. As reported by Deadline, it’s an original story and will be “richly cinematic.” Hennig stated that, “I’ve often described how seeing Star Wars in 1977 essentially rewired my 12-year-old brain, shaping my creative life and future indelibly. I’m elated to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love.”
Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly added that, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working again with Amy. She and the Skydance New Media team have the talent and ambition to create a unique Star Wars adventure. Their vision for making inviting, cinematic interactive entertainment makes this collaboration very exciting. We’re working hard with their team of experienced and talented developers, and we’re looking forward to sharing more with Star Wars fans when the time is right.”
Interestingly, this will mark the second time that Hennig has worked on a major Star Wars title. Originally, she worked with with Visceral Games working on an open-world title in the sci-fi universe codenamed Yuma. This would be changed into a more heist-based title codenamed Ragtag. Unfortunately, the project would be handed off to EA Vancouver and Visceral subsequently shut down.
Along with the new Star Wars project, Hennig is also one of the writers for Luminous Productions’ Forspoken. Skydance New Media is also working on a new triple-A with Marvel that will be a narrative-focused action adventure title. Stay tuned for more details on these projects in the coming months.
