A Star Wars game revolving around the Disney+ series ‘The Mandalorian’ is on the way, suggests a new leaker.
The Mandalorian is one of the most successful Star Wars projects in recent history. Although the franchise has an extremely popular following as it is, The Mandalorian Disney+ series basically single-handedly kickstarted the company’s popular streaming service.
A story revolving around the mysterious Mandalorian Din Djarin protecting Grogu, a baby member of Yoda’s species, The Mandalorian is the perfect low-stakes adventure set in the Star Wars universe. And gamers believe it would be the perfect source material for a video game.
Now, it looks like we’ll be getting our wish after all. Now that Star Wars games are no longer EA exclusive, it’s about to be an exciting time for fans of the franchise.
We already know about a huge new open-world Star Wars game coming from this popular developer, after all!
The Mandalorian Game Leaked Early
Now, we have more exciting news as a game based on The Mandalorian leaks ahead of an official reveal.
This news comes from XboxEra’s Nick Baker, who recently accurately leaked the PS Plus games for May 2021. This time around, Shpeshal_Ed is leaking a new Mandalorian game, much earlier than initially planned.
After a new Phil Spencer image began to make the rounds online, fans were quick to speculate on the meaning of the items on the shelf behind him. Typically, the Xbox Boss leaves clues for Microsoft’s upcoming projects in his backdrop, and it looks like this was no exception.
But one blurry figure in particular attracted a lot of attention by itself:
“Ok. So you’ll notice…there’s a Mandalorian Funko on Phil’s shelf,” Baker writes. “Yes. Someone is making a Mandalorian game. Not sure who yet. Sorry.”
The XboxEra co-founder states that Mando also appeared in Spencer’s last shelf pic. Despite having not noticed at the time, Baker reportedly got the go-ahead to mention The Mandalorian game to fans.
But this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a game with The Mandalorian in it!
Is The Mandalorian Game Xbox Exclusive?
Unfortunately, it turns out that the Funko figure in question was actually the Arbiter from Halo. But despite being wrong about the shelf tease, Baker confirms that a Mandalorian game is still in the works.
“Yeah, there’s going to be a Mando game. But um…that’s apparently not a Mando Funko. I might have just said something I wasn’t supposed to yet.”
Given that Phil Spencer was never actually teasing the game, The Mandalorian title could be available on both PlayStation and Xbox after all. And with the next-gen console shortage about to end, let’s hope the game is exclusive to new consoles.
Right now we don’t know who is responsible for developing The Mandalorian game, but we’re certain it’ll be a hit on release. Plus, thanks to the return of LucasFilm Games, all manner of new Star Wars games could be coming soon.
