Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito will appear in an upcoming video game but he isn't able talk about it just yet - although he thinks it will be "huge". Esposito spoke with Collider recently about how playing Gus Fring on Breaking Bad changed his life and broached a number of topics in the interview. He eventually touched on motion capture and that style of acting for a big upcoming video game. "This video game I did, which is going to be huge — can't mention it," Esposito said. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=next-gen-buzzwords-explained&captions=true"] After being asked about how Epic Games' Unreal Engine is being used to film The Mandalorian, Esposito wouldn't say if that technology is what's being used in this video game, although he did say his part with this game included a "new style of acting." Esposito provided the voice and motion capture for The Dentist in PayDay 2 so it'd be odd for him to be referring to motion capture when he said "new style of acting." It could be actually be a new style of acting, separate from motion capture as well. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/12/18/the-biggest-ps4-and-ps5-games-of-2020"] The big video game Esposito is featured in is seemingly unannounced at this time, but there are still plenty of opportunities for this game to be revealed this year, assuming the reveal is set to happen in 2020. Esposito would make a great Far Cry villain considering his background in villainous characters and Ubisoft does have its Ubisoft Forward digital event coming on July 12 where a Far Cry game could possibly be announced. Perhaps his character from The Mandalorian will be making an appearance in EA's upcoming Star Wars: Squadron. Microsoft also has its first-party studio-focused event coming this month and it's possible Esposito could be playing a character in one of those games. There's also the possibility that this game featuring Esposito is not going to be revealed anytime soon. Only time will tell - but we'll let you know as soon as we know more.
