As the galaxy far, far away, expands to the size of a Death Star, the ever-growing franchise of movies and TV shows is also joined by an impressive roster of video games. Alongside Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, we've got Quantic Dreams' Star Wars Eclipse, and a mystery open-world game from Ubisoft. So where is our Boba Fett video game?

First introduced in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back, this stoic bounty hunter was tasked with tracking down the Millennium Falcon. Despite only speaking four lines in George Lucas' trilogy, Boba Fett has stood the test of time to become one of the franchise's most popular additions. We guess it's the merchandise. Although he's had plenty of video game appearances, he's still yet to make the leap and carry a title of his own.

Is A Boba Fett Video Game Coming?

Even though Jeremy Bulloch played Fett for the original trilogy, the character is largely remembered for Temuera Morrison's ongoing performance as the Mandalorian outcast. After playing Jango Fett (Boba's father) in Attack of the Clones, Morrison returned to play a live-action Boba for The Mandalorian Season 2 and The Book of Boba Fett spin-off.

Speaking to GamingBible at this year's Star Wars Celebration, Morrison explained what's next for his time under the beskar. "I do a few voices for those video games. Very hard work, harder than acting," said Morrison. "You try and get some emotion into a voiceover, all the instructions as well, you know? 'Turn left, go right, you missed, try again'." When asked if he'd return for a potential Republic Commando 2, Morrison concluded, "Oh yes, oh yes. Definitely. The gaming is where it’s all at, too, because with a movie or a TV show it's all over but with a game, you can be there a bit longer. There will be some coming, I can let you know that."

As well as lending his vocals to 2002's Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, Morrison has voiced Jango, Boba, and any number of clones in the game, including 2005's OG Republic CommandoLEGO Star Wars: The Video Game, and the two newer Battlefront Games. He clearly enjoys the medium, so let's open the doors to where this could lead.

A Boba Fett Video Game Makes A Lot Of Sense

Back in the day, you might recall the canned Star Wars 1313 from LucasArts. The game was going to traverse the criminal underworld of Coruscant's Level 1313, with players originally taking up the guise of an unnamed bounty hunter. An early twist would've seen them killed off by Boba Fett, as the rest of 1313 let you play as the man himself. Even if some have long given up on 1313, we previously pitched it for a revival.

Let's also remember those continued rumours of a game based on The Mandalorian. Some sketchy footage that appeared online was quickly debunked, however, God of War's Cory Barlog has previously said he'd love to make a Mando video game. There were also those whispers of an Xbox-exclusive Mando game that hasn't turned into anything yet. Could we combine the best of both worlds to lead Din Djarin and Boba share the screen in a Boba Fett video game? This is the way...
