Amy Hennig knows more about triple-A development than most, having steered the Uncharted ship for so long as the series’ creative director and head writer, before leaving for pastures new prior to the release of Uncharted 4.
After stepping away from Naughty Dog, Hennig joined up with Visceral Games to serve as creative director on the studio’s top secret Star Wars project. But despite having made a name for herself in the realm of triple-A game dev, Hennig isn’t exactly smitten with the “unwinnable” lifestyle it imposes on developers.
“There are people who never go home and see their families. They have children who are growing up without seeing them,” she explained in an interview with the Designer Notes podcast, as transcribed by GamesIndustry.biz.
