Cillian Murphy to play Far Cry 7 villain, leak suggests

April 20, 2024 by No Comments


The leaker has hinted that Cillian Murphy will play the lead villain in Far Cry 7, which is currently in development. In a cryptic post on Twitter, j0nathan uploaded a series of images that some users tried to connect – and confirmed that Cillian Murphy is hitting the headlines with Far Cry 7.


Not the first

Far Cry is no stranger to celebrity appearances. The most recent title, Far Cry 6, stars Giancarlo Esposito as the big bad guy. In 2012’s Far Cry 3, Michael Mando played Vaas, one of the most recognizable villains in gaming history. There’s no specific reason to highlight why Oppenheimer and Cillian Murphy of Peaky Blinders fame would be cast as the villain, but he once played the Scarecrow in a Batman movie, so there’s that.

Last year, we published exclusive outline story details for Far Cry 7, and one of these details was hinted at in an image posted by j0nathan. The reference is a nod to the gameplay element in Far Cry 7 that sees players fight against the clock to protect their family from a cult-like organization.

The conclusions of j0nathan’s post may be a reach in some ways, but he has successfully leaked other Ubisoft information in the past, so there is a track record.
