Update: A few weeks ago, Nolan North talked aboveboard about what he knew of Visceral's accessible Star Wars project, adage "...if you’re a big fan of Amy Hennig and her styles of stories, the big affair about her is she’s gone to EA and is activity to reboot a aboriginal Star Wars authorization in the appearance of Uncharted." That animadversion curve up with the images that advisers from Visceral accept been administration on amusing media back the game's development began. Replace Nathan Drake. Add Han Solo. Again, this is all speculation, and no one has accepted North's comments yet.
Visceral's Scott Warner hasn't slowed on amusing media, either. He's giving admirers a acceptable attending at the decorations in Visceral's office. Most of the images point to Han Solo. Here are the latest photos:
The Falcon looms over assembly of the game.
Employees can now clean their anxiety on Han.
Warner tweeted this angel with the bulletin "This is area the fun begins."

Original Story: We've accepted Visceral Games has been alive on a Star Wars bold back 2013, and added afresh that above Naughty Dog alum Amy Hennig is co-writing this abstruse activity with Todd Stashwick, an amateur who can currently be apparent in Syfy's 12 Monkeys; he's additionally the co-creator of the banana book, Devil Inside. We additionally apperceive that Scott Warner is administering the project. Warner's accomplished credits accommodate assignment on Battlefield Hardline, Halo 4, and Mercenaries 1 and 2.
What bold they are architecture is anybody's guess. While speaking with Fortune in aboriginal 2014, Electronic Arts' CEO Andrew Wilson compared his company's access to the Star Wars acreage with Warner Bros.' assignment on the Batman Arkham series. "What Warner Bros. did with Batman was booty the amount roots of that IP and apparent that central the walls of Gotham City and delivered an alternate acquaintance that had absolute ties to what you would see in the films and what you had apprehend in the comics, while accepting its own activity because it could accommodate such abysmal and added immersive storylines,” he told Fortune. “When we attending at the Star Wars backdrop that’s how we’re attractive at it. We’re not aggravating to body a bold that replicates the storyline of any accurate film.”
From that attenuate aggravate we can assumption that Visceral is alive on a new story, but we don't apperceive back it will booty abode aural the Star Wars timeline. Over the aftermost year, Stashwick, Hennig, Warner, and articulation amateur Nolan North, accept tweeted a cardinal of images and comments that all allotment agnate themes: the mains actuality Han Solo, the Millennium Falcon, and a Star Wars adaptation of a charlatan flag. The charlatan banderole in accurate is accepting abundant breadth in Visceral's office.
Take all of this with a Costco-sized butt of salt. It could beggarly annihilation in the end, but it is air-conditioned to see the team's action for the project, and Visceral's flat transform into a artistic lab for a new Star Wars experience. Here are the images I begin interesting:

Our TakeWe don't appetite to brainstorm too abundant on what these images could mean, but there's an accessible accepted affair active throughout these teases and shots of the studio. Beforehand in the year, Star Wars fan sites like Star Wars 7 News ran bottomless rumors that Visceral was alive on a Han Solo game. While we didn't feel there was abundant affirmation to run the rumor at the time, these images band up with beforehand claims. I anticipate I allege for all Star Wars admirers back I say how agitative it would be to footfall into the boots of our admired smuggler.
