Uncharted creator Amy Hennig left EA earlier this year, and the Star Wars game she was previously heading up has been put on the shelf. I'm hoping to bring some people on board'.

Since the Visceral shutdown, the project has been moved to EA Vancouver.

Hennig's position at EA has been debated since Visceral Games shut down in October, with her go-to response being that she was "in negotiations".

Pour one out for Visceral's former Star Wars game.

EA officially confirmed in an October blog post that the untitled Star Wars game had not necessarily been canceled, but between a full studio's closure and "shifting the game to be a broader experience that allows for more variety and player agency", it would nearly certainly not resemble Hennig and Visceral's original project, which EA had described as "a story-based, linear game".

She also commented that EA Vancouver is now working on something that's different from what they wanted to do with the game. As far as her new studio is concerned, she shared that she is "consulting with some people" (including several VR companies) and that she hopes to begin bringing on employees to begin working on new projects, aiming for a small team at a max of 15 members.

Otherwise, we'll suffer because we have the best player in the world and the other players need to benefit from that. Following the win, Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo revealed his half-time speech spurred them on to win.

Update: Amy Hennig has spoken out on Twitter to clarify any confusion regarding her Star Wars game reportedly being shelved. It makes it sound like I just went home!

"Hennig explained that despite the setbacks from the cancellation of the Star Wars project she was developing - which originally was planned as a single-player, narrative-driven action-adventure game - she explained that she "[gets] along with all those people [at EA]", but is now "working independently and staying independent". The Vancouver studio is working on something pretty different. Hennig said the new open-world approach was much different than what her team had been working on. Amy is an wonderful storyteller-a crafter and a creator.

Now we know she is no longer with EA. "We wish Amy all the best with what comes next, and we will all be watching with excitement", the company said in a statement to The Verge.

Is LeBron James set for a move to the Los Angeles Lakers? As far as I'm concerned, LeBron James is big-time player. And if they can also add Kawhi Leonard or Paul George , adding solid complementary pieces will be even easier.
