Mortal Kombat 11 Terminator Not Voiced By Arnold Schwarzenegger
Following the recent addition of Nightwolf to the roster, Mortal Kombat 11 finally revealed the full contents of the game’s Kombat Pack DLC, confirming an assortment of new fighters such as Spawn, Sindel and The Joker. Of course, the biggest reveal of the bunch was the T-800 Terminator, the character’s appearance based on a grizzled Arnold Schwarzenegger from the upcoming film Terminator: Dark Fate. Though the fighter very much resembles the action-centric actor, a new report suggests that his iconic voice won’t be able to make the cut.
According to THR, Mortal Kombat 11 is not set to feature any voice acting from Schwarzenegger, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive confirming the use of a sound-a-like impersonator for the Terminator debut. This reported development comes after a seemingly contradictory Twitter post from NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon, the Creative Director expressing his disbelief that MK11 had been able to land such a famous Hollywod star.
Part of me still can’t believe we got Arnold.

It’s surely a shame that Arnold won’t be available to voice the Terminator, so here’s hoping the aformentioned impersonator does a pretty good job. Though Schwarzenegger won’t portray the character for Mortal Kombat 11, the actor has previously provided his likeness for other projects such as varied Terminator tie-in games and notably as a pre-order character for the WWE 2K series.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
What do you think? Are you bummed that Arnold isn’t voicing the Terminator, or are you holding out hope the sound-a-like will do the cyborg justice?
