Mad Max Game: Why No Australian Accent, Developer Explains

Mad Max, an upcoming game that is based on the movie with the same name, made a debut at E3 2013 earlier this week and its protagonist will not have the trademark Australian accent. The developer of the game explains that the game has a different take from that of the Mad Max movie. (E3, Mad Max, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

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

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.

Everything happens in America normally so I'm pleasantly surprised to hear that it will still be using Falcons in the Aussie outback even if Max is a yank. The Aussie actors in the first film is what gives it it's charm. Can't see how a game set in oz would work with everyone sounding like most of our tv shows.

This just doesn't make any sense. They had no problem with using people with a foreign accent in Just Cause 2, which is an original game. Why change it for a licensed product? Is it that hard to find an Australian voice actor who can speak clearly enough for people to understand? How about having American sounding voice actor fake an Australian accent. I'd prefer that.
