Victoria Atkin, Ivi Fry’s voice in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, accused Ubisoft of theft of her voice
Victoria Atkin, a widely known voice actress Ivi Fry from Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, stated that Ubisoft stole her voice with AI. Victoria is an active participant in strikes passing in Hollywood about the introduction of generative artificial intelligence technologies to replace human labor and problems with wages.
The actress wrote on Twitter, where she told her subscribers that she allegedly stole her voice. And although her tweet is not entirely clear in context, it probably says that for the new appearance Ivi Fry in the game Ubisoft intends to use AI to simulate Victoria’s voice, and not hire it to record.
Every time someone plays in the role of Ivi Fry, Ubisoft earns money. I have never received a center from game deductions in any of the games in the creation of which I took part, but at the same time video games bring more money than films. And today I am doing what Ivy Fry herself would do. I express my solidarity!
Victoria complemented her protest with a photograph in which she explains that Ubisoft did not pay her any deductions every time her voice sounded in the role of Ivi Fry, and the company earned money on this. She demanded to pay residual payments to the actors of voice actors over the years, while the game is on sale, and not a one -time payment.
At the same time, the desire of studios to use the capabilities of AI is increasingly causing concerns in those who are engaged in creative work, whether it be writers, actors of voice actors or artists. Many of them fear that without a clear legal base of AI technology will allow you to copy and reproduce their work, depriving them of the opportunity to stably receive existence.
Moreover, the tendency to use AI, which was widely used in Hollywood, led to the fact that for two months in the United States, protests did not stop. It is possible that the game industry will soon be on the threshold of the same strikes from those who are underpaid or do not pay due attention in different areas of game development.
In the past, there have already been cases when the game industry allegedly did not treat her employees working in small creative positions poorly. Not so long ago, EA received complaints for the fact that in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor the translators were not awarded separately, which caused concern for translation specialists. In addition, Genshin impact actors did not pay salaries for several months.
