"Star Wars: Battlefront" has become one of the biggest video game in the entire gaming history, not only did it bring something new to the plate but it also gave video gaming fans a run for their money. Now that E3 conference has been over for a month, news about a new "Star Wars" video game has come out and what is more exciting is that the developer behind the new "Star Wars" game is none other than "Uncharted" creator Amy Hennig.

Amy Hennig is one of the brains behind the highly rated "Uncharted" game instalments and, now that she will work on EA's and Visceral Games' "Star Wars," could it be possible that the game will have a familiar tone from "Uncharted"?.

"It means getting the tone right. It's what my writing partner Todd [Stashwick] calls breezy urgency," Amy Hennig explained. "It's the idea that there's sort of a swash-buckling charm to the thing. There's humor and buoyancy but at the same time there's stakes and jeopardy."

"Humor and Bouyancy" is well known to be one of the tones in "Uncharted." Although Amy Hennig did say this, no other "Star Wars" detail has been revealed.

Amy Hennig also talked about as to the reason they are working closely with Lucas Film on the new "Star Wars" game."The reason [we're collaborating with Lucasfilm so closely is] we're writing an original Star Wars story with new characters, locations, tech, creatures, you name it. All of it has to sit authentically alongside the stuff people know now," she explained. 

As of yet it remains to be seen what the new "Star Wars" game title could be. Also, details about the forthcoming game remains under wraps until now.
