One of the minds behind Uncharted compares his cancelled Star Wars game with the new Respawn game.
The British portal Eurogamer has been able to chat with Amy Hennig, famous ex-Naughty Dog, Crystal Dynamics and one of the main victims of the policies of Electronic Arts, on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The central theme of the talk was the playable circumstances of the title and the editor has not hesitated to take the chest, very similar to those that ended up costing the cancellation of his video game project for a player in 2017. Hennig no He has hesitated to express his joy for the existence of the game, “for the sake of Respawn, I am excited about his title and I have heard great things about the project,” but he has also offered some interesting reflections on the software.
I’m excited about the game. I’ve heard great things about the projectThe official Twitter of Star Wars and EA said a few days ago that Fallen Order would arrive “without microtransactions and without loot boxes, an adventure for a player for players ready to put on the skin of a Jedi.” What did you think of Hennig? He assured that “it comes from the official Star Wars Twitter, so, certainly, it should be part of his new plan, but I do not know if they implicitly refer to the previous comments they made after assassinating our project.” Hennig commanded a project of Visceral Games which was known as Project Ragtag, presenting classic ideas and parallel to the game of the creators of APEX Legends, Dead Space.
For his executive role in EA, Zampella can protect the interests of Respawn
Hennig believes he can respond to a new EA philosophy with the Star Wars series, and that “there are many changes in the industry, constantly.” During my time in EA, there were many comings and goings about what the company wanted, and everyone was trying to guess which was the right path “, but also places the power of Respawn among EA entrepreneurs as a key to the survival of a project that, a priori, It seems contradictory with the American firm and its actions in recent years. The artist explained that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order“It is a protected entity, because Vince Zampella is very confident of the project and is part of the executive team of Electronic Arts, so it can protect the interests of Respawn.”
Hennig also speculated on the many changes made at the top of the company, explaining that “there are many changes in the high echelons of Electronic Arts since everything Ragtag happened.” Patrick Soderlund and Jade Raymond left the firm, Laura Miele, She was in charge of the Star Wars franchise, she is now in Patrick’s place, I do not have internal knowledge of the matter, but there are many reasons that invite us to think about why the new attitude of the company was taken. ” Henning has always regretted the cancellation of the Visceral project and has become one of the main sponsors of the classic player narrative games in recent years.
No microtransactions. No loot boxes. And no, we won't be adding them. A single-player Star Wars story for those of you who are ready to become a Jedi. https://t.co/kTheWVBjJc
