An untitled Boba Fett novel was supposed to be written by Karen Traviss for release in 2011. It was to be set after the Legacy of the Force series and to contain some flashbacks into Boba Fett's past. However, after Traviss's unforeseen departure from Star Wars after Imperial Commando: 501st,  the book was canceled. Traviss later stated in an interview that the reason the Boba Fett book was canceled was because of an issue involving the unproduced Star Wars live-action TV series.
On August 24, 2017, Traviss revealed in her Twitter account that she never pitched any exact story for the novel and that the cancellation happened before she could write a draft for the book's story.
