Apex Legends Voice Actors Aren't Credited in Game, Fans Call for Change
Apex Legends' voice actors aren't listed in the game credits, which has spurred fans to call for change and have them credited.
Respawn Entertainment’s 2019 Battle Royale hit Apex Legends seems to be generating some traction in regards to crediting the voice actors. Those who know Apex Legends will know that the game features a lot of dialogue, ranging from individual character phrases for weapons, items, and quips, and more.
One Reddit user posted about how half a year ago they reached out to developers, PR, and EA to mention that the voice actors for the game aren’t listed on the credits page. Despite efforts, they claim they haven’t had a response, and as a result, the voice actors still aren’t listed on the page.
The thread has a mixture of comments, as you’d expect. Some users are in agreement that the voice actors should be credited, others speculate that it’s a contractual situation in which they aren’t credited for private reasons, and some…well some think it’s just another pointless thing to get angry over. Ultimately though, the majority of commenters seem to be wanting EA or Respawn Entertainment to credit the actors.
Users have pointed out that the voice actors all have the game listed on their IMDB pages, additionally, the IMDB page for the game itself lists the voice actors. However, for most, it seems as if the community would rather see the voice actors listed on the official game’s credits be that on the website or in-game itself.
Apex Legends does have a strong focus on in-game dialogue, with more phrases and lines being added as the game continues to be updated. We recently saw the voice actor for Mirage, Roger Craig Smith take to the stage at The Game Awards to announce the Holo-Day Bash. Personally, I’m all for seeing the voice actors listed in the credits, and I was under the impression that they were credited somewhere in the game, but it turns out they aren’t.
