If you've enjoyed the commanding delivery of Giancarlo Esposito in recent television shows like The Mandalorian, Better Call Saul, Harley Quinn, or The Boys, soon you'll be able to hear it in a video game. In an interview with Collider (Via GameSpot), the actor teased that he did work on a "huge" game recently.
"This video game I did; which is going to be huge. Can't really mention," Esposito said.
Apparently the role required motion capture on Esposito's part. In fact, the tease came from a line of questioning about The Mandalorian, which is filmed on digital LED backgrounds created in Unreal Engine. That unique style of filming led to the talk of motion capture.
The news has led to rampant speculation about which game he'll be a part of. Call of Duty has used performance and likeness capture for Josh Duhamel in Call of Duty: WWII and Kit Harington in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Perhaps Esposito is a character in the rumored Call of Duty for 2020, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Some have speculated he could be the villain in Ubisoft's next Far Cry, a series where the villains are literally the face of the game.
Either way, it won't be his first time in a game: Esposito previously played The Dentist in Payday 2. We're looking forward to seeing where he ends up; he mentioned that his work was done earlier in 2020, so perhaps it's a game we won't see until 2021.
