Original story follows.
Xbox Games Pass’ Twitter account is teasing some upcoming Star Wars-related news with an image of both The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda / The Child.
Xbox Game Pass Tweeted out, alongside the previously mentioned image, “All we’re gonna say is that we’re not posting The Mandalorian and The Child for no reason.”
What could it be hinting at? One possibility is that Disney+, where The Mandalorian exclusively streams, will be added as an Xbox Game Pass perk, or at the very least will include some introductory promotion.
This also could be something related to the news that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is sort of coming to Xbox Game Pass, as it is being added to EA Play on November 10, the same day EA Play is being added as a perk for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
The Mandalorian most recently aired the second episode of its second season on Disney+, and in our review, we said “much like the Season 2 premiere, “The Passenger” balances some of its narrative shortcomings – most notably its standalone storyline and lack of momentum – with some satisfying character beats that give us further insight into Mando’s priorities.
Whatever this news ends up being, it looks to add to the celebration of the launch of the Xbox Series X/S on November 10, 2020. You can check our Xbox Series X review and Xbox Series S review to hear our thoughts on Microsoft’s next-gen consoles.
