The leaks were true, Giancarlo Exposito aka Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring will be the villain for the upcoming Far Cry 6 game.
On Sunday, Ubisoft released the trailer for Far Cry 6 and Exposito is apparently playing a Fidel Castro type dictator in the fictional country of Yara.
"Someday you will be El Presidente… they will hate you Diego. Everything you say, do, believe… will be wrong."

One interesting thing about the trailer is that it focuses on a kid named Diego who is Exposito’s son in the game.
People on the Internet believe that Far Cry 6 is a prequel to Far Cry 3 and that Diego is actually a young version of Vaas, the main villain of that game.
