Amy Hennig’s Canceled Star Wars Game Was Meant to Evoke ‘Ensemble’ Feel of Films \u2013 IGN Unfiltered

Most notably, Hennig compared her vision for the game, codenamed “Ragtag,” to the serialized adventures of Indiana Jones that inspired Nathan Drake’s adventures in Uncharted, but with one key difference.

“You look at Indiana Jones, he’s the protagonist,” Hennig said. “The other characters are side characters. They’re important, but they’re not co-protagonists. In Star Wars, those are ensemble stories, all of them. If you didn’t do that in a Star Wars game that was meant to feel like a Star Wars movie, something would feel off and you wouldn’t know what it was.”

You can hear Hennig explain her vision further by watching the video at the top of this page, or checking out the full Unfiltered episode on Tuesday, which also features an interview with Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price on the success of Marvel’s Spider-Man.
