While she's worked on a number of other games throughout her career, Hennig is best known for the creation of the action-adventure franchise Uncharted during her time at PlayStation studio Naughty Dog. Hennig personally directed Uncharted: Drake's Deception, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Fortune before leaving Naughty Dog in 2014.

Hennig went on to work at Electronic Arts for a time, working on a Star Wars game called Project Ragtag before it was canceled, with developer Visceral Games being closed as a result.

Analysis: Looking great, but let's see gameplay

That story trailer was seriously impressive, and I'm definitely interested in the premise here. Fighting Nazis is always fun, and getting to see Steve Rogers early on in his mantle of Captain America alongside a different Black Panther is really cool. I'm definitely curious about exactly how the game will play, but the cinematics certainly look great.

2025 is also sooner than I expected this game to arrive, though of course a delay to 2026 could easily happen depending on how development is going.
