Uncharted Creator Amy Hennig Sets Up New Indie Studio

She said: "I have not worked at EA since January, technically, legally".

Amy Hennig, formerly creative director of the Uncharted series of games, has left EA to set up an independent development studio. I'm hoping to bring some people on board'. But we were unsure of what Hennig's status became after this shakeup. But EA shut down Visceral in October 2017, moving development of the still-shadowy Star Wars game to EA Vancouver.

In a farcical end to Japan's 1-0 loss to Poland, the Japanese players slowed to walking pace and hardly a single tackle was made. Nishino then introduced Inui, but Japan barely fought back and were only reprieved after Colombia scored in Samara .

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". Now, almost a year later Hennig has re-emerged, revealing that she no longer works for EA and is, in fact, about to launch her own independent studio.

Read between her carefully chosen words and it's not particularly hard to realize that EA was dead-set on making this game something it wasn't created to be. It makes it sound like I just went home!

Yerry Mina thumped home the second-half header to secure a dramatic victory that catapulted the South Americans into the last 16. The centre-back, now at the World Cup with Senegal , believes the £88m (€100m) switch he is being linked with is mad.

Hopefully now Hennig is far, far away from the high pressures of the publishing giant, she can continue to create great new video game franchises. The Vancouver studio is working on something pretty different. "I just started my own small little studio and am consulting with some people".

The untitled "Star Wars" game was originally announced by EA in 2016 and was supposed to be released during the company's 2019 fiscal year (April 2018 - March 2019).

Egypt's Essam El Hadary , 45, became the oldest player to feature at a World Cup and saved Fahad Al Muwallad's penalty. Egypt , meanwhile, has scored once, in a 3-1 loss to Uruguay on a goal from Mohamed Salah .

Now, speaking to Eurogamer at this week's Gamelab event in Barcelona, Hennig has revealed that she left EA in January this year, and is in the process of setting up an independent developer. "Yes, Amy Hennig has moved on from Electronic Arts", a spokesperson said. We have so much respect for her and the creative spirit she brought to the teams and projects she worked on at EA. "We wish Amy all the best with what comes next, and we will all be watching with excitement".
