Hennig's exit from award-winner developer Naughty Dog (Uncharted, The Last of Us) shocked many but given the opportunity at hand it would have been a quick decision for just about anyone. Here's a bit from EA on its new creative director:
“Over the last few weeks, Amy and I have spent a lot of time talking about what her first project would be. There are a lot of different directions we could have gone, but I could sense that what really excited her about this opportunity (because let's face it, we weren't the only ones knocking at her door) was Star Wars. Amy's a huge fan. We happen to be making a Star Wars game. Just thinking about the possibilities made both of us even more excited about having her join the team.”
This opportunity is the confluence of the 2 most influential experiences of my youth, and I couldn't be more excited to go on this journey.— Amy Hennig (@amy_hennig) April 3, 2014
