It looks like Skydance is going to be quite busy, as the studio that was founded in 2019 by Amy Hennig, one of the masterminds behind the Uncharted series, is now seemingly also working on a new Star Wars project. It’s not the first time she was involved with a game from that franchise, such as Visceral Games’ sadly canceled project some time ago. Now, she’s involved with a “richly cinematic action-adventure game” with a promising original story. Hennig gave the following statement on working on a game that takes place in a franchise she grew up with.
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.Amy Henning
We’re still waiting for an update on their Marvel game, but there have been hints that the studio has been fully on board to rival other AAA studios. We did get the hint that Marc Bernardin is one of the writers for the Marvel game, and it’s unsure how early in development the Star Wars project might be at this point. So, we might have to wait a while before we get any update on what exactly the project entails. Still, it’s always exciting to see these projects start development, and here’s hoping that we get some hints in the near future.
