The next couple of years will be exciting for fans of the Star Wars video games. Apart from the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's sequel next year, the franchise is also set to unleash two titles — the Knights of the Old Republic remake and an open-world game under Ubisoft. Details about the latter have remained scarce but surprisingly, a Star Wars actor seems to know what's going on.

Appearing at Fan Expo Canada 2022, The Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito revealed exciting new details about the Ubisoft-developed video game. According to the Moff Gideon actor, Navid Khavari, the writer of Far Cry 6 where he played the villain Antón Castillo is working on the video game.

He shared: "Oh my goodness. Are you kidding me? It would be a wonderful thing. I’m hearing that Navid out of Montreal, the writer of Far Cry, is now moving on to Star Wars and doing something for a Swedish company which I know very little about it, but I’m about to call him."

We have no idea how Esposito knows details about the game but is it a subtle hint that it will actually be set within the MandoVerse? It's worth noting that there's speculation surrounding the Ubisoft project being a tie-in game to the hit Disney+ series but as it stands, nothing has officially been confirmed. As for its release, the untitled Star Wars game is reportedly dropping sometime in 2025 but nothing final has been set in stone.

Meanwhile, speaking of Star Wars games, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is expected to hit stores in March 2023.
