Amy Hennig Making A Star Wars Game Paves The Way For Scalebound

Scalebound might have been cancelled but I have faith it will rise again Skydance Studios is yet to put out a single video game but it already feels like it could be a major player in the next decade going toe to toe with the likes of Naughty Dog and Insomniac. Helmed by Amy Hennig of Uncharted fame the studio revealed a few months back that it was making a Marvel game no other details of this project are known but credible guesses suggest its either AntMan or Fantastic Four. Im still holding out hope for Daredevil. Now another upcoming Skydance game has been announced Star Wars. Not much is known of this game either just that its an action adventure game featuring an original story and with Hennig name dropped several times in the press release until we see something of its games she remains Sky dances only high card all I could think of is that Scale bound still has a chance.

Let me explain where I got that from. It feels as though we hear about games way too far in advance these days and as a result several announced games never surface. Hundreds more are worked on behind closed doors shelved and die in darkness. Some of these games become legendary built up in our heads to masterpiece boundary shattering levels. The grass is always greener on the other side and the best game is the one you never got to play.

Star Wars have two of these legendary games as well as a handful of other cancelled games some of which we know about and some of which we dont. The first is Star Wars 1313 which would have seen us play as Boba Fett in his bounty hunting days exploring new planets having epic adventures with mature storytelling and with fast physical mocapped fight scenes rather than force powers. It was revealed in 2012 and was basically The Mandalorian seven years before The Mandalorian. The Disney acquisition of 2014 is blamed for killing it.

The second of these two big cancelled Star Wars games is what matters here though as thats the one Hennig was working on Project Ragtag. This had a less glamorous reveal than 1313s E3 showcase instead becoming known when EA revealed it had signed a deal with Disney that granted Visceral Games an EA subsidiary the rights to a Star Wars game. Visceral had previously been working on a Golden Age of Piracy game but in the aftermath of Black Flag decided to duck out and instead took the work from the pirate game and slapped Star Wars stickers on it. Some time in the development cycle a heist angle similar to GTAs was folded in. Thats right folks Amy Hennig was making a game about Star Wars pirates robbing banks and now well never get to play it. In case EA subsidiary was not a big enough giveaway this game was cancelled when the studio was culled and folded into EA Vancouver and EA Montreal.

This new Sky dance game will not be about Star Wars pirates robbing banks. Its possible that Hennig could recycle and rework some ideas but this will be a brand new project. Still I imagine it feels quite cathartic that after spending three years of your life making a game based on one of the biggest most influential properties in media only to come away with nothing to show for it to then secure a second chance.
