The Mandalorian Star Giancarlo Esposito Teases Role In “Huge” New Video Game

From running a crystal meth empire in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to leading a post-Empire battalion in the Outer Rim, Giancarlo Esposito‘s stock seems to be rising year after year. And after all his achievements in TV and film, he is expanding his horizons to be more involved in video games. And apparently, the next one he’s working on is going to be “huge”.

Esposito mentioned his involvement in this new game in passing in a recent interview with Collider. While he was tight-lipped about what exactly the new game is, or who he had worked with on this project, he hinted that he and the studio behind it had to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic in order to deliver his scenes.

[2020] started with The Mandalorian [and] this video game I did, which is going to be huge and I can’t really mention… with this new style of acting which, in a way, this pandemic has created a new style of acting for you through Zoom, through our own mechanics.

What exactly this new game could be remains to be seen, but if an actor of his calibre is involved, it wouldn’t be far off to assume it is being made by a AAA studio.

Conversely, Esposito’s Better Call Saul co-star, Michael Mando, rose to prominence due to his roles in video games, most notably that of Vaas Montenegro in Far Cry 3 — now dubbed one of the most iconic characters in modern video games.

Currently, those who are eagerly looking forward to Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon won’t have to wait long, as Season 2 of The Mandalorian is slated to launch sometime in October 2020 on Disney+.
