Could a “Star Wars” title based on “The Mandalorian” be in development? At least this is what the actress Janina Gavankar, who slipped into the role of Iden Versio in “Star Wars: Battlefront 2”, suggests.
A few weeks ago, those responsible at Lucasfilm Games pointed out that the exclusive contract concluded with Electronic Arts until 2023 would not be extended.
Nevertheless, the company would like to work with the US publisher on “Star Wars” games in the coming years. According to current rumors, Electronic Arts may have started behind the scenes with the development of a new “Star Wars” adventure in “The Mandalorian” universe. The supposedly crucial clue was provided by the actress Janina Gavankar, who embodied Iden Versio in “Star Wars Battlefront 2” and spread quite clear clues via Twitter.
Battlefront 2 authors on board?
So Gavankar hinted at a new “Star Wars” adventure that puts Iden Versio in the center. The story of the previously unannounced project should be based on the events of “The Mandalorian”. Also on board are apparently Mitch Dyer and Walt Williams, who were working as authors on “Star Wars Battlefront 2” at the time. This could indicate that the “Star Wars” title discussed here is indeed in development at Electronic Arts and not at Ubisoft Massive.

Gavankar’s hints are underpinned by two more tweets from last November in which she and TJ Ramini, who slipped into the role of Del Meeko in “Battlefront 2”, can be seen in motion-capturing suits.
Since Electronic Arts has not yet issued an official statement, one can currently only speculate what the supposed new “Star Wars” project is all about.
