You read that right, several years after the cancellation of the Visceral Games Star Wars title, Amy Hennig is back working on a Star Wars project. This time her studio Skydance New Media will collaborate with Lucasfilm Games on the new project.
In describing her affection towards the massive franchise, Skydance shared this quote:
“I’ve often described how seeing Star Wars in 1977 essentially rewired my 12-year-old brain, shaping my creative life and future indelibly,” said Hennig, President, Skydance New Media. “I’m elated to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love.”
Lucasfilm Games VP had this to add:
“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,” said Douglas Reilly, Vice President, Lucasfilm Games. “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.”
This is the second major Skydance New Media collaboration. Late last year it was announced that Skydance New Media would also be working on a new Marvel game.
There was no further information on when the game might be set or what kind of game it will be. For now, fans will just have to settle with knowing it is in the works and in very good hands.
