Gearbox has now confirmed that Tiny Tina in Borderlands 3 will be voiced by veteran voice actor Ashly Burch. The voice actor is known for her various roles such as Aloy in Horizon Zero Dawn, Chloe Price in Life Is Strange and more. This was confirmed by CEO Randy Pitchford on Twitter in response to a fan.
It is great news since Tiny Tina is one of the most famous and beloved characters from the Borderlands franchise. Tina first appeared in Borderlands 2 and also got her own DLC called Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. Her character was very well received and brought to life by Burch perfectly.
The confirmation will put all the fans of the character at ease, especially after the news that Troy Baker won’t be playing the voice of Rhys in Borderlands 3.
Gearbox surprised everyone by announcing that they will feature characters from Tales from the Borderlands in the upcoming game. But unfortunately, Rhys won’t be voiced by the same actor again.
Randy Pitchford confirmed the news, saying that Baker was indeed reached out but he turned down the offer to play Rhys. He said: “I was told by the audio director that he turned it down. Fortunately, with how Rhys appears in the game, I don’t think it actually matters at all.” It wasn’t expected and many fans are still curious to know why the voice actor refused to return as a voice actor in the latest entry of Borderlands series. Baker is known for playing big characters like Joel from The Last of Us and more.
What’s disappointing is the fact that Baker says that he was never approached, the game was made without his involvement. Baker responded to a fan’s question at a recent convention saying:
I really want Gearbox to know that, if they’re going to bring back characters from the Telltale Borderlands, it should really be the people who originated the characters. If I had turned it down flatly, we wouldn’t be having this conversation
Moreover, Baker sent out various Tweets in the past, telling Gearbox Software about how he would like to reprise the role of Rhys in the upcoming game. It looks like someone is hiding the real picture. We are curious to know what exactly happened.
Besides Burch, Rapper Ice-T is also rumored to be one of the voice actors in the game.
Borderlands 3 published by 2K Games will arrive on September 13 for Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One, and PC (via Epic Game Store).
