If you’re a gamer then it’s likely the Uncharted games have crossed your path in some form over the last few years. Whether you played them or watched the video showing Harrison Ford playing the game, one thing you will notice is how well put together the games are. I personally played the first one and couldn’t get enough and was about to enjoy the second one before my PS3 gave up the ghost. Anyway one thing I noticed is how good the game was written. Now that writer is heading to EA to work on a Star Wars game. How cool is that?
She’s landed at Electronic Art’s Visceral Games, where she’ll act as Creative Director on the team’s Star Wars project.
“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,” said Vice President / General Manager of Visceral Games Steve Papoutsis (who also worked with Hennig at Crystal Dynamics).
Hennig, he said, is a huge fan of Star Wars, and they happen to be working on a Star Wars game, so here we are.
“It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to contribute to the Star Wars universe, after it’s had such a formative influence on my life,” Hennig said on Twitter.
