If theyre getting rid of the accent then they might as well replace his car with a prius.

Are people making a big deal out of this??
Wow.

People will complain about anything. I am a huge Mad Max fan and really am just happy we are getting a game based on that universe at all.

Give someone a million bucks and they will complain about the taxes or why it wasn't 2 million.

...because the film, and this game, is set in Australia.

"its protagonist will not have the trademark Australian accent."

If it's a trademark then why ditch it?
In our next Star Wars game we are going to use a billy club instead of a light saber.

"However, the game will still be using the famous Ford Falcons that was used in the original movie and also it will be set in the Outback."

OK set in the outback but no Aussie accent? hmm....

Also, most games use an American accent, why not be a little different while being authentic?

I remember some backslash in the US for games/movies with foreign accents, average American customer who, for example, though Europe was a country, deemed it "bad acting"/"bad dub".

I'd bet my bucks on this reason.
