There was some momentary excitement earlier this week when Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon said he couldn’t believe NetherRealm had “got” Arnold Schwarzenegger – aka. the time-travelling cyborg assassin from The Terminator movies.
Part of me still can’t believe we got Arnold.
Boon’s tweet sent a sizable portion of the Mortal Kombat 11 community into meltdown – with many fans jumping to the conclusion that the T-800 in the game would be voiced by Arnie himself.
Even though the former California governor will reprise his role as The Terminator in the upcoming movie – Terminator: Dark Fate – unfortunately, he won’t be voicing his character in the DLC Kombat Pack.
According to a “knowledgeable” source in contact with The Hollywood Reporter, a “sound-a-like” voice actor was used to voice Arnie in the popular fighting game. Warner Bros. Interactive also reportedly confirmed Schwarzenegger would not be voicing his character in the game.
Terminator T-800 will be made available in MK11 on 8th October, and his latest movie will launch not long after this.
