The Game Developers Conference will begin this March and will be attended by some of the greatest video game developers in the industry and honor them. One of them will be Amy Hennig who is notorious for working on legendary franchises such as Legacy of Kain, Uncharted, and Jak and Daxter. She’ll be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Katie Stern, GM of the Game Developers Conference, also gave a statement on Hennig’s selection to be awarded with this honor:

“Amy Hennig is a powerful figure in the game world; her work exemplifies what good game narrative can be, with pathos, humor, suspense and energy. She is truly one of the most influential developers in the games industry. These past accomplishments are just milestones in a career that we’ll be following for years to come, but for one night at the GDCAs, we’ll reflect on the hard work and artistry that makes game developers like Amy the heart of the industry.”

Currently, Amy Hennig is seeking to establish her own studio following the closure of Visceral Games and the cancellation of the Star Wars project she was working on.
