Amy Hennig Joins Visceral Studios

Ex Naughty Dog writer and creative director Amy Hennig has now been confirmed to have joined EA’s Visceral Studios. Hennig has been the lead writer and creative director for the popular Uncharted series, and departed from Naughty Dog earlier last month, shocking the gaming industry. Hennig will now be using her expertise and talent on Visceral Studios’ upcoming Star Wars project, which will hopefully bring the game franchise to the next level.

In a statement on EA’s website;

“Amy has long been recognized as one of our industry’s top visionaries, and is coming off an amazing run as the Writer and Creative Director of the Uncharted franchise. But her contributions go beyond the games she helped create at Naughty Dog and at Crystal Dynamics, where we worked together many years ago. As both a colleague and friend, 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. This fits in perfectly with what we’re trying to do here at Visceral and Amy’s going to help us continue in our pursuit to make the most thrilling, immersive games in the world”
