In light of the great success of The Mandalorian series that debuted in 2019 on Disney+, a video game adaptation is reportedly in development.
Rumors had already been circulating about this for some time, recently corroborated by Nick Baker, co-founder of XboxEra, in a podcast on YouTube.
For the moment, with two seasons under its belt, The Mandalorian has had a small effect in the galaxy far, far away from Star Wars, while waiting for a third season following the controversial Book of Boba Fett. It is therefore not surprising that Disney is looking to adapt this series, which is carried by Pedro Pascal as much as Baby Yoda, to the videogame format.
As a bounty hunter, Mando could offer an interesting action-RPG experience, similar to The Witcher 3. We could travel across the galaxy to collect bounties, participate in various side quests and upgrade our equipment in an open-world style game.
In the latest XboxEra podcast, Nick Baker said that he has a lot of information about it, but that he prefers to keep it to himself until the developer of this game The Mandalorian has been announced. Since Electronic Arts lost the exclusivity on the Star Wars video game license, the wildest speculations are possible.
This loss of exclusivity began when Ubisoft announced that it was working on a Star Wars game in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games. Given the French giant’s appetite for open-world games, it’s not impossible that the project for a Mandalorian game has been entrusted to it. However, we will have to wait for an official announcement to know for sure.
