Amy Hennig and Gary Whitta of Uncharted are working on Forspoken

Sony let us revisit the epic RPG Forspoken in its Showcase live broadcast yesterday. That information stream was filled with huge announcements about Wolverine, Spider-Man 2 and KOTOR remakes. Even in that crowded room, Forspoken can stand out. Now we know that famous writers Amy Hennig and Gary Whitta are involved in this project, and this project sounds even more exciting.

Hennig is best known for her work at Naughty Dog, where she worked on the Uncharted series. Before that, she worked at Crystal Dynamics, where she wrote the Soul Reaver series.Gary Whitta is probably best known for his work in the script Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with Book of Eli And his animal crossing talk show.

Square Enix originally announced Forspoken as Project Athia in June 2020. Forspoken is a brand new franchise of Luminous Productions, the company behind Final Fantasy XV. The title is starring a young woman named Frey. She comes from our world and must use her newly discovered magical abilities to fight against terrifying monsters in the alien landscape.

We don’t have a release date, but we know that it is set for the spring of 2022, and Square Enix plans to showcase the game more during the Tokyo Game Show.
