It was recently announced that Skydance New Media – the studio headed by Uncharted creator Amy Hennig – is collaborating with Lucasfilm Games on a new action-adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. That would have been a significant enough announcement as is, but of course, Hennig’s history with Star Wars gives it more weight.
Hennig was leading development on a third person action-adventure Star Wars title at Visceral Games for several years. Codenamed Project Ragtag, the project was cancelled in 2017 after several years of development, and Visceral Games was shut down. It seems, however, that Ragtag might have found a way to live on.
As per prominent leaker @accngt (via DualShockers), Skydance New Media’s Star Wars game, which is reportedly codenamed Project Walton, is a revival of “some sort” of Project Ragtag. Allegedly, the game will be set in the Rebel Alliance era (the era that the original Star Wars trilogy is set in), similar to Ragtag, though the leaker doesn’t go into further detail on what other similarities the two projects could have.
Interestingly, Hennig’s team at Skydance New Media has another major licensed AAA game in the works, with a Marvel game having been announced last October. Reportedly, the project is either based on Fantastic Four or Ant-Man– read more on that through here.
Recap on the little info I shared on Skydance New Media Star Wars project
– Codenamed "Project Walton"
– Reportedly based in Rebel Alliance era (Classic Era), Project Ragtag was also in this era, it is maybe some sort of revival of it.
