Giancarlo says Vaas from Far Cry 3 looks like he came out of a failed boy band
Yesterday, a promotional campaign for Far Cry 6 started, in which the main star is the actor Giancarlo Esposito, otherwise the main villain in the game where he plays the dictator Anton Castillo. A new video has already been released today in which Esposito answers questions from Far Cry fans and puts an end to speculation and various theories about the story in the upcoming Far Cry 6.
The first question is exactly what emerged immediately after the game’s announcement: is the dictator’s son Diego Vaas from Far Cry 3, given that he has a very similar scar above his eyebrow just like the cult villain. The scar is on the opposite side of Diego's face, and Far Cry 6 takes place chronologically after the triple, so we know that Diego can't have any connection with Vaas. Esposito, therefore, ridiculed this by claiming that Vaas looked like he had come out of a failed boy band, while “his” Diego has the qualities of a more intelligent villain. So - they are not the same person.
It is worth noting that such a slight mockery of Vaas may be the result of the development of Far Cry 6 led by the Ubisoft team in Toronto, while previous games from the series (including the trio) were run by a team from Montreal. Ubisoft teams within the same countries sometimes compete with each other, especially when working on the same series, as in the case of Assassin's Creed where the "competition" between Ubisoft Montreal and Quebec resulted in Quebec taking over from Montreal as the lead studio for future Assassin's Creed games.
