Amy Hennig, the once Creative Director of the Uncharted Series at Naughty Dog, has now joined Visceral Games. Hennig also states that the project she is currently working on
Hennig posted on her Twitter just recently stating:
"Very excited to share that I am joining @VisceralGames as Creative Director on a new Star Wars project."
In a post on EA's website, the company is proud to have Hennig aboard.
"Amy has long been recognized as one of our industry’s top visionaries, and is coming off an amazing run as the Writer and Creative Director of the Uncharted franchise." stated Steve Papoutsis, Vice President and General Manager of Visceral Games. " But her contributions go beyond the games she helped create at Naughty Dog and at Crystal Dynamics, where we worked together many years ago. As both a colleague and friend, I’ve always admired her approach to creative development – focusing on nailing down the soul of a game first, and then making sure the writing, the gameplay, the design and the art comes together to form a unified, interactive experience for the player. This fits in perfectly with what we’re trying to do here at Visceral and Amy’s going to help us continue in our pursuit to make the most thrilling, immersive games in the world."
Hennig recently left Naughty Dog last month. What the Star Wars project is has not yet been disclosed at this time.
