PAX has officially announced that Uncharted creator and Visceral Games Creative Director Amy Hennig is going to deliver the PAX West 2016 Keynote address this year. In addition, the full schedule of panels will be available on the Guidebook mobile app very soon.
Hennig previously worked at Naughty Dog, where she helped create the Uncharted franchise and the hero Nathan Drake. She’s currently working on a new Star Wars game at Visceral.
Speaking on the news, Penny Arcade co-founder Jerry Holkins stated, “Amy’s revolutionary work on the Uncharted series played an immeasurable role in shaping the modern gaming landscape. We’re thrilled PAX West attendees will have the chance to listen to one of gaming’s leading visionaries.”
Amy Hennig delivering the keynote is good news. She more than deserves the honor, and it should be interesting what she has to say on the state of the industry.
PAX West is set for September 2-5 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington. The show is currently sold out of attendee badges. PAX Aus is set for Melbourne, Australia from November 4-6 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Badges and passes for that event are still available for $60 AUD and $160 AUD respectively.
More details will soon be revealed on PAX South and PAX East 2017.
