Official word about EA's most troubled Star Wars video game has dried up since a major October announcement, but its former director, game development legend and Uncharted series creator Amy Hennig, confirmed a few key pieces of news on Thursday—including her official departure from the game publisher.
Hennig took the stage at the Gamelab Conference in Barcelona for a Q&A, where she confirmed to Eurogamer critic and reporter Rob Purchese that she had "not worked at EA since January, technically, legally." In October, EA had claimed that the company was "in discussions" about where Hennig would land following the closure of her game studio, Visceral Games, and what would happen with the major reboot of the Star Wars game they'd been making.
EA officially confirmed in an October blog post that the untitled Star Wars game had not necessarily been canceled, but between a full studio's closure and "shifting the game to be a broader experience that allows for more variety and player agency," it would almost certainly not resemble Hennig and Visceral's original project, which EA had described as "a story-based, linear game." Soon after, Kotaku's Jason Schreier reported a lengthy story about that game's troubled development, citing anonymous reports of leadership clashes, shrinking staffs, and more.
