Developers of the upcoming Mad Max game, Avalanche Studios, decided against using Mel Gibson's brother's voice talent for the role of Mad Max, director of Urban Legend Jamie Blanks and Donal Gibson recently told AusGamers.
Blanks and Donal Gibson contacted the Australian website last week, suggesting Gibson take on the Mad Max role for the upcoming game. The audio demo of Donal is available to listen to via the original AusGamers post.
"We understand that Avalanche Studios would like to take a different route with the project," the duo told AusGamers. "We wish them all the best, and every success with the Mad Max video game. We want to take this opportunity to thank the gaming community, and most especially the many fans worldwide, for their positive reaction to the voice demo and for all of their generous support. We'd like to add that we are both looking forward to our new projects in the future. Many Thanks!"
Mad Max is slated to launch on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The open-world third-person action game thrusts players in the role of Max as he roams around The Wasteland. The title features both action combat and vehicular combat.
