Henning to join Visceral Games

by on04 April 2014

Will work on Star Wars as Creative Director

Visceral Games is adding a new Creative Director to the team working on the Star Wars title for Electronic Arts. That in itself isn’t big news, but when the new Creative Director is none other than Amy Henning formally of Naughty Dog who was the Creative Director for Uncharted, it is big news.

Henning’s departure from Naughty Dog is a bit of a mystery, but it is no mystery on the kind of impact she can make on the production of a title. The connection between Steve Papoutsis who is the general manager of Visceral and Henning is through the work that they did years ago for Crystal Dynamics. This does look to be an excellent fit for Henning as well due to the fact she is said to be a big Star Wars fan.

While many might be sad to see Henning leave the world of Nathan Drake, her addition to Visceral appears to be an excellent get for the studio and should do nothing but enhance the future Star Wars title that they are working on.
