MidBoss also explains that it was important for the team to hire a voiceover cast that’s representative of the diversity of 2064: Read Only Memories’ characters. MidBoss founder Matt Conn adds that:
“One of the things we’re most excited about is not only the amazing and talented cast of well-known game personalities and voiceover talent, but also how we were able to work with an incredibly diverse cast, some of whom are unknown names, but are representative of the characters in the game. We worked hard to find people of color and a LGBT folks to play those characters in the game. We really wanted to stay true to these characters and who they are on every level.”
2064: Read Only Memories will be available on PS4 and PS Vita from August 16, 2016. The game is currently available on PC, Mac and Linux.
