Skydance Media Developing New Marvel Action-Adventure Led By Former UNCHARTED Creative Director Amy Hennig

Award-winning game writer and director Amy Hennig is working on a new narrative-driven blockbuster action-adventure game with a completely original story and take on the Marvel Universe.

In 2019, award-winning game director and writer Amy Hennig helped launch Skydance Media's interactive division with a focus on story-focused experiences and interactive series. Today, the company confirmed their first major project is a new Marvel video game. More specifically, the currently untitled project is "a story-driven, blockbuster action-adventure game, featuring a completely original story and take on the Marvel Universe."

Based on that rather vague description, it's hard to predict which heroes this game will focus on, although since we have a new Spider-Man and Wolverine game on the way, we can probably rule out those two characters. Many have longed for a proper Daredevil video game, which could definitely be a cool angle.

“I can’t imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game,” said Hennig, President of Skydance New Media. “The Marvel Universe epitomizes all the action, mystery and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience. It’s an honor to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to enable our players to embody these heroes that they love.”

“Amy has been setting the bar for narrative adventure games for decades and we are happy to be collaborating with the talented and experienced New Media team at Skydance,” added Jay Ong, Executive Vice President & Head of Marvel Games. “Their ambition and vision for making innovative entertainment using beloved Marvel IP was obvious from our first meeting. We’re excited to share more with Marvel fans when the time is right.”

Hennig, of course, is the perfect person to spearhead this project. She is best known for her work on Naughty Dog's critically-acclaimed Uncharted series which is considered one of the best action-adventure video game franchises of all-time.

She served as game director for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune as well as head writer and created director for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. She also wrote and directed Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception before leaving the company in 2014 to join Visceral Games for a Star Wars project. When Visceral Games shut down in 2017, Hennig helped start a small studio focused on virtual reality games before ultimately joining Skydance Media in 2019.

Which Marvel character do you hope to see come to life in Skydance's new AAA blockbuster?
