Skydance and Lucasfilm Games are teaming up for an original Star Wars story

A new Star Wars project is on the way. Skydance New Media and Lucasfilm Games are teaming up for a new action-adventure game in the Star Wars universe.

Skydance New Media is the studio Hennig and Electronic Arts alum Julian Beak formed in 2019. It’s the second project the studio has taken on, and second Disney project at that. The team confirmed it’s been working on a narrative-driven Marvel game last year.

“I’ve often described how seeing Star Wars in 1977 essentially rewired my 12-year-old brain, shaping my creative life and future indelibly,” said Hennig in today’s announcement. “I’m elated to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love.”

The only details we have so far on the Star Wars game is that it’s a “richly cinematic action-adventure game.” It’s also confirmed to be an action-adventure title, and an original story in the Star Wars universe.

Hennig previously worked on the Star Wars franchise at Visceral. The team’s project was quietly shelved and Hennig left Electronic Arts; now, she’s the President of Skydance New Media. The studio’s Executive Vice President and GM Beak also hails from EA, where he worked on the cancelled Visceral Star Wars project as well as Battlefield and Need for Speed.

“We couldn’t be happier to be working with Lucasfilm Games,” said Beak. “We look forward to taking fans on an epic journey with this Star Wars action-adventure title.”

This unnamed Skydance Star Wars project joins the burgeoning Star Wars video game pipeline. Star Wars Eclipse is also in development at Detroit: Become Human studio Quantic Dream, and three Star Wars projects are on the way from EA. And that’s not even counting the recently released Lego Star Wars game. Much like the Marvel universe, it looks like a lot of Star Wars is on the way.
