To replace the deceased actor of voicing in Cyberpunk 2077, II was used

According to representatives of the company, when creating their last release, the Polish developer of the video game CD Projekt used artificial intelligence technology to recreate the vote of the actor who passed away.

The voice of a milogost Speech, a popular Polish actor who died in 2021, was reproduced by an artificial intelligence algorithm for Phantom Liberty, a new expansion to the game Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt. In a Bloomberg statement, the company said that it received permission from the Speech family and that it considered the possibility of replacing it in expanding and rewriting its replicas in the original game, but decided to abandon it.

"We didn’t like this approach", – The director of the localization of CD Projekt Mikolai Swede said in his statement, since the rivers "was one of the leading Polish actors of the voice acting", And his work in the game as Dr. Victor Vector "It was just magnificent".

Nevertheless, CD Projekt invited another actor to voiced new replicas, and then, using Ukrainian development to cloning a voice called Respeher, developed an algorithm that changes the dialogue so that it sounds like a re -jacket.

"Thanks to this, we were able to maintain his performance in the game and pay tribute to his excellent skill in the role of Victor Vector", – The Swede said.

At the same time, the fact that the company received permission from the Speech family is also important before making such a change that "Very supported" His sons.

The rapid development of generative artificial intelligence, capable of creating text, images and voice based on tips, caused ethical and practical questions about its use in creative work in the entertainment industry. Films such as "star Wars", Used technology to replace dead actors, such as Carrie Fisher and Peter Cushing, and the use of artificial intelligence became a stumbling block during strikes by screenwriters and actors this year.

However, the choice of the time of presentation of the material is very interesting. Currently, dedication actors and performers in the game industry are considering the possibility of joining the SAG-AFTRA strike, and one of their main problems is also the use of artificial intelligence technologies.
