It’s only a couple of days until Ubisoft Forward and, of course, one of their big reveals was leaked before the event. It seems nothing is sacred anymore. Ubisoft barley batted an eyelash, acknowledging the leak with a short teaser on Twitter.
The clip shows Giancarlo Esposito, from Breaking Bad, smoking a cigar. It’s not much of a surprise for some, since this was part of the leak for the Far Cry 6. The game takes place in a tropical paradise called Yara, which is ruled by Esposito’s character, Anton Castillo, and his son Diego.
The tweet contains a rather cheeky reference to past roles Esposito has played, including Gus Fring form Breaking Bad and Moff Gideon from The Mandalorian. These characters are known for being bad dudes, and Anton is no different.
Far Cry 6 was leaked on the Hong Kong PlayStation Store, which revealed Esposito as a main character. The listing has been removed, but not before it unveiled a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5. You can see the listing below:
According to the page, the game will launch on February 18th, 2021.
