Today’s Far Cry 6 cinematic reveal was slim on details. It showed Esposito’s character talking to his son and eventual successor, while forcing him to hold a grenade in his hand. In the storefront, more details have emerged about Far Cry 6.
the actor Giancarlo Esposito, of Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian, and Better Call Saul fame, teased in an interview that he was starring in a major video game. On Friday, we learned just what that game is: Far Cry 6. It wasn’t an intentional reveal, however. A listing for it went live on Hong Kong PlayStation’s storefront. Whoops! Ubisoft seemed ready for the inevitable leak though, as it tweeted soon after a teaser for today’s full reveal, featuring a clip of Esposito smoking a cigar.
For one, it’s set on the fictional island of Yara, which sounds like an analogue to real-world Cuba. Esposito will be the cover star villain Anton Castillo, a dictator. The player will portray Dani Rojas, a local guerrilla fighter who mobilizes against the tyrannical ruler. Players will be able to choose from a male or female main character.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla creative director Ashraf Ismail took a leave of absence from Ubisoft Montreal following allegations of manipulative behavior.

Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2021 across both next-gen and current platforms. It will even sport a free upgrade to PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, so you won’t have to buy the game twice if you don’t buy a next-gen platform during its launch window.
