Avalanche Studios, the developers of the upcoming Mad Max game have listened to disappointed Australians and Mad Max purists and have reversed their decision have have Max speak with an American accent in their upcoming game.
The developers originally wanted to create their "own version" of the story, but after a petition by AusGamers on change.org garnered almost 3000 supporters, and a lot of media attention, the founder & Chief Creative Officer at Avalanche Studios, Christofer Sundberg, took to Twitter to put people at ease.
"Attn. fans who want Max to have an Aussie accent in #MadMaxGame : It shall be so. We admore your loyalty. You have been heard." he tweeted.
There is power in numbers! Well done, Aussies!
