Uncharted director Amy Hennig is getting a second shot at working on a Star Wars game.
Developer and publisher Skydance New Media announced on Tuesday that the team is working with Lucasfilm Games on a Star Wars game. The title is described as being a "richly cinematic action-adventure game" that will tell an "original story" in the Star Wars universe.
"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 of Skydance New Media. "I'm elated to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love."
This markes the second major game Hennig and Skydance New Media are working on. Back in 2021, Skydance New Media was announced to be working on AAA Marvel game.
Hennig previously worked on a Star Wars game called Project Ragtag at the now-defunct Visceral Games under Electronic Arts. The project was canceled in 2017, and the studio was closed. In 2021, Disney revived Lucasfilm Games as a publishing brand, partnering with various developers on different games under the LucasArts portfolio, including Star Wars titles.
"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 of 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."
Multiple Star Wars titles are currently in development, including three under Electronic Arts-owned Respawn Games, a game being developed by Ubisoft, a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Quantic Dreams' High Republic game, Star Wars: Eclipse.
