Lucasfilm Games and Skydance New Media announce new ‘cinematic action-adventure game’ in Star Wars universe
A new Star Wars game is in development at Skydance New Media, the interactive studio founded in 2019 by game director Amy Hennig, Lucasfilm Games and Skydance announced Tuesday. It’s a return to the Star Wars franchise for Hennig, who had previously worked with the franchise at EA’s Visceral Games on an ambitious (but ultimately canceled) project set in a galaxy far, far away.
Skydance New Media describes its untitled Star Wars project as a “richly cinematic action-adventure game featuring an original story,” but did not reveal specifics. No title, release date, or platforms were announced.
“I’ve often described how seeing Star Wars in 1977 essentially rewired my 12-year-old brain, shaping my creative life and future indelibly,” Hennig said in a news release. “I’m elated to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love.”
