  • Star Wars: Amy Hennig left EA after

Hennig was brought on as creative director Visceral Games' now shelved Star Wars title, which as of October, is being revamped and in development with EA Vancouver.

"I'm working independently and staying independent", she said. A game like this has been a long time coming, too, with fans first being hyped up for Star Wars 1313 before its cancellation in the wake of the Disney deal and then this project, which was initially being developed by Dead Space developer Visceral with Hennig at the helm.

"I'm not doing anything Star Wars", Hennig told Eurogamer. "I just started my own small little studio and am consulting with some people".

The two spent some quality time in India recently where Nick got the opportunity to meet Priyanka's close friends and family. If reports are to be believed, Priyanka might exchange rings with Jonas by the end of July or in the first week of August.

"I haven't been in, but look - I get along with all those people, I consider even the guys on the exec team friends".

Hopefully now Hennig is far, far away from the high pressures of the publishing giant, she can continue to create great new video game franchises.

So, what's next? Well, apparently Titanfall developers Respawn are working on a single player game called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The publisher's research pushed the new studio to drop the linear approach in favour of something more replayable and lasting, which Hennig describes as "pretty different" from the original vision.

This news meant that the studios Star Wars project led by Uncharted creator Amy Hennig - codenamed Ragtag - was in a state of limbo along with the staff who had were now without a job. She says that once the project moved in an open-world direction, it became "such a different game to the one we were making". "We wish Amy all the best with what comes next, and we will all be watching with excitement", the company said in a statement to The Verge.
