Amy Hennig Worked On Uncharted 4 For Two Years: “There’s A Lot of Me Still In There”

Ammy Hennig was the creative director of Uncharted 4 before she left Naughty Dog for EA. She is also considered the creator of the series as she worked on the concept of Uncharted 1 and then later finished the trilogy on PS3.

Amy Hennig departure was rather abrupt and surprised fans, leading some to believe the she was forced out according to a report from IGN which stated Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley as the main reason of her departure. She left Naughty Dog in March 2014 and was immediately offered a position at Visceral Games. She is currently working on an action adventure Star Wars game as a creative director, a role that she previously held for Uncharted 4.

Naughty Dog has given a special mention to Amy Hennig in the credits of Uncharted 4, acknowledging all her hard work for the series. Meanwhile Amy Hennig herself seems to be happy to see the success of Uncharted 4, which has received critical acclaim so far. Recently on Twitter, she confirmed the time she spent working on Uncharted 4 as well appreciated the hard work done by Neil Druckmann after her departure.

Considering that she was creator of Uncharted series, it is exciting to see her working on action adventure game set in Star Wars. It was recently revealed that Respawn Entertainment is working on a Star Wars action adventure game and Amy clarified that it was a separate game from what she was working on at Visceral Games.

Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars project is being headed by former Sony Santa Monica developer Stig Amussen, who is known for his work on God of War 3.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be released on May 10th for the PS4.
