Skydance New Media and LucasFilms Games have announced a new collaborative effort, and are working together on the development and production of a new original, narrative-driven story in the Star Wars galaxy.
At the helm of Skydance New Media is Amy Hennig, a game industry legend who has worked on such classics as Jak and Daxter, Uncharted, and Legacy of Kain.
Hennig was quoted as saying:
“I’ve often described how seeing Star Wars in 1977 essentially rewired my 12-year-old brain, shaping my creative life and future indelibly. I’m elated to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love.”
This is the second project announced by the game studio, with the intention to pioneer and produce a new category of narrative-driven entertainment. In late 2021, the studio announced another partnership with Marvel Entertainment to produce a new original story, within the Marvel universe.
“We couldn’t be happier to be working with Lucasfilm Games, [and] We look forward to taking fans on an epic journey with this Star Wars action-adventure title.”Julian Beak, executive vice president & GM, Skydance New Media. “
We here at Gaming.Buzz can’t wait to see what comes out of this collaborative deal, and will be watching out for any and all news in regards to this.
