Visceral Games’ Star Wars project is undoubtedly one of gaming’s most talked about.
Shredded in mystery and intrigue, both the studio and its publisher in EA have kept the project under tight security, rightfully so considering it’s so early in development.
Expected to be released in 2018, we still have a long way to go to experience Visceral’s Star Wars vision. In fact, the game is so early in development, creative director Amy Hennig (of Uncharted fame) doesn’t think the studio should even talk about it.
Hennig spoke during the Star Wars Celebration Europe at the ExCeL London Exhibition Centre, and the folks at DualShockers have a round-up of what she said.
The best thing to come out of Hennig’s panel is new artwork from the game, which she invited fans to study as there are “a lot of clues”. Check them out below this article.
Interestingly, Hennig said that the creative process she is employing for this Star Wars project is similar to what she did with Uncharted, which instigated cheering from the crowd in attendance. She responded with, “Good, they’ll like this game then!”
It’s easy to misinterpret that as meaning that the game will be similar to Uncharted — as many outlets have done — but she was talking about the creative process, which is interesting and could be easily misunderstood. Visceral is working closely with LucasFilm for this project, building a new story around new characters, so it’s clear that Hennig referred to the narrative elements of the game world.
