Haden Blackman, the executive producer and writer of the Force Unleashed video game series, announced at the Comic-con, that Boba Fett would make an appearance in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. He also told USA Today, that they, “didn’t want to just throw Boba Fett or other characters in the game just for the sake of making a fan appearance. But it really made sense for (Vader) to hire Boba Fett. He’s one of those characters that really resonates with fans. That cool masked man (with) all the gadgets, he’s a bounty hunter, which has got to be a life of adventure and danger. Boba Fett really has become a rich character over time, and for us to have him show up in a small but pivotal role was exciting.”
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is set to be released on Oct. 26, 2010.
