God Of War Director Wants The Mandalorian Made Into A Video Game

Audiences around the world have adored The Mandalorian ever since the series debuted last year.

While we will probably have many more seasons left in the Star Wars spin-off, many are wondering whether the plot will be made into a different type of franchise.

Cory Barlog, director of 2018's best game God Of War, has made a call for the characters and storyline to be turned into a video game and reckons it would be a massive hit.

He wrote on Twitter: "If someone isn't working on a great single player Mandalorian game where you play a bounty hunter flying your ship from system to system picking up bounties, upgrading your Beskar armor and getting into adventures then I really don't know what the hell we are doing here.

"And by great single player I mean a strong focus on character development with relatable human triumphs, losses + seemingly impossible decisions to wrestle with. Not just shooting, but surviving - both physically and emotionally. though I would hope the shooting would be fun."

To be honest, that sounds incredible.

Video game technology has developed to such a point that you could create an open-universe game in which to travel around and complete missions. Think Grand Theft Auto but for space and Baby Yoda.

Sadly, Barlog doesn't want to work on this imaginary game himself as he presumably already has his hands full with a completely different game about a gruff loner and his young companion. Instead, he's reaching out to all the other developers out there in a bid to light the spark that will ignite The Mandalorian video game.

He even jokes that there's a team out there already working on it but they just can't talk about it yet. Who knows though, maybe The Mandalorian has given EA cause to reassess the value of bounty hunters in video games.

At the same time, Barlog has issued a call for the reverse to happen to his legendary God of War.

Earlier this year, the director indicated his wish for the Game of the Year to be transformed into a Netflix series.

Following the massive success of shows like Castlevania and The Witcher, Barlog shared his belief that the adventures of Kratos and Atreus could work equally well if adapted for TV.

Barlog was simply sharing his own 'hopes and dreams', and wasn't slyly teasing an impending God of War Netflix series in any way.

"BTW This is not a hint or anything," the director quickly clarified. "I just believe that games would make great TV shows because you spend so much time with the characters in fantastic worlds."

Only time will tell.
