villain, Vaas, has hinted towards him playing the role again.In a Reddit AMA, the Better Call Saul and Orphan Black actor was asked if he was still recognised as Vaas. His reply seems to imply that he’ll be recognised more in future:
“Thank you so much! Vaas is my spirit animal – having co-created that character is something that will always be dear to me. I still get recognized as Vaas, and I still feel the outpouring of love for that character – makes me very happy. Who knows… maybe I will reprise the role very soon? :p Thank you for watching xo”
If this was a game-focused role, it leaves us with some interesting possibilities. Famously, Vaas is killed halfway through the course of Far Cry 3, meaning any new role for Mando would likely be in a remake of the game (although this feels unlikely given the current-gen re-release Far Cry 3 got in 2018), or a prequel. That said, Far Cry isn’t exactly afraid to get weird with it when it wants to – undead Vaas, anyone?
We’ve heard nothing about a new Far Cry game since the release of Far Cry: New Dawn but, with Ubisoft planning to release 5 AAA games by early 2021, it feels likely that we’ll see one pop up sooner or later.
