Someone at EA probably isn't very happy with Nolan North right about now. The voice actor best known for playing Nathan Drake in Naughty Dog's Uncharted series, may have revealed a little too much about the major Star Wars in development at Visceral.
Speaking during a panel at Metrocon in Florida (via GameSpot), Nolan said Visceral's game will be modelled on the Uncharted series and be different to, but "along the same lines" of, Star Wars: 1313, the cancelled game which impressed with its debut footage at E3 2012.
His comments make it seem all the more likely that Visceral is working on a third person action game.
The subject arose when Nolan was asked about the departure of Amy Hennig from Naughty Dog. Hennig was the creative director on the three Uncharted games for PS3, writing the scripts for the latter two.
She left to join Visceral and their Star Wars game, which will be the next major title released by EA after DICE's Star Wars Battlefront later this year.
"If you're a big fan of Amy Hennig and her style of story, she's gone to EA and is going to reboot a brand new Star Wars franchise in the style of Uncharted," said Nolan. "I happen to know a lot about it and it's going to be awesome."
Will Nolan have a role in the new game? He certainly might, but that's less to do with his comments and more to do with the odds. The man's been an incredibly prolific actor in video games, appearing in around 150 to date.
Hennig left Naughty Dog in 2014, during the development of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which is now being led by the directors of Naughty Dog's hugely popular The Last of Us – Neil Druckmann and Bruce Staley.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will be released in Q1 of 2016. Visceral's Star Wars game is still some way off given the team only released their last game – Battlefield: Hardline – in March.
