Massive Entertainment ‘s Star Wars game is being handled by Naveed Khavari , Narrative Director of Far Cry 5 and Far Cry 6. Actor Giancarlo Esposito , who played the main antagonist in Far Cry 6, let slip about this during his speech at Fan Expo Canada 2022 .
When asked from the audience if he would like to play in a Star Wars game, Esposito replied that he would be happy about it, and then added that he heard that Navid Khavari from Ubisoft Montreal , who worked on Far Cry, is now just switched to Star Wars and is “doing something” for the publisher’s Swedish studio.
“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.”Giancarlo Esposito
In addition to Far Cry, Khavari previously worked as a senior writer on the first The Division and a narrative designer on Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Splinter Cell: Blacklist .
Star Wars from Massive Entertainment was announced in early 2021 at an early stage of development. It will be a story driven open world game powered by the Snowdrop Engine . The creative director is Julian Gerity, who is responsible for The Division 2 and The Crew.
