Lucasfilms Games will be the new label with which the next Star Wars games will come out and fans are excited thinking about the possibilities that their franchises have in the world of gaming. For this reason, it is striking that a trusted journalist made statements suggesting that a game similar or inspired by The Mandalorian could be in the works.
Through his Twitter account, Jason Schreier, a video game journalist who writes for Bloomberg, spoke about the possibility of different Star Wars projects in the world of gaming. The first thing he made clear is that it seems very difficult for Star Wars 1313 to return.
In case you didn’t know, Star Wars 1313 was a game LucasArts was working on before it was acquired by Disney. The canceled project was to be a third-person adventure in which we would take control of a bounty hunter.
“A lot of people are calling for [the return of Star Wars 1313 ], but it’s never going to happen. The Star Wars 1313 team is separate and the code is 8 years old, ”explained Schreier.
A lot of people are asking for this but it's never going to happen. The Star Wars 1313 team is scattered and the code is eight years old. What's far more likely is that Lucasfilm kicks off a bunch of new Star Wars games, including maybe even one about a bounty hunter https://t.co/GeNA9qXZ9O

Remember that Blood Sweat & Pixels, Schreier’s book, has a chapter dedicated to the development of Star Wars 1313 and its cancellation. So, it is a source with knowledge about this project.
A GAME OF THE MANDALORIAN SEEMS TO BE A POSSIBILITY
If the return of Star Wars 1313 seems impossible, what can we expect from Lucasfilm Games and Star Wars? Schreier’s words make us think that a game of The Mandalorian is a possibility.
What happens is that the journalist stated that what the community should expect from Lucasfilms Games are new games based on the universe created by George Lucas. Among them one based on a bounty hunter.
“What is more likely is that Lucasfilms will release a lot of new Star Wars games, maybe even one about a bounty hunter,” were Schreier’s words.
As you can see, Schreier didn’t confirm anything, but it seems to be a clue. After all, Din Djarin, protagonist of The Mandalorian, is a bounty hunter. Given this; the success of the production and its structure reminiscent of a video game, a series of The Mandalorian is seen as a real possibility.
In fact, several members of the community think the same. Check out:

Of course, we must point out that it is better that you take this information with a grain of salt. After all, there is always the possibility that Schreier is referring to another bounty hunter or that he is simply making a reference that they could make another game of such a character, as it was going to be Star Wars 1313.
And you, do you think we’ll see a game of The Mandalorian? Do you think what Schreier says is a pita? Tell us in the comments.
