Many fans were disappointed that Terry Crews wasn’t the voice of the new Overwatch hero, Doomfist. So far, the confirmed voice actor for Doomfist is a theatre actor, Sahr Ngaujah. Even though many fans didn’t get Crews for the character, Ngaujah actually does the role well.
As seen on his Terry Crews’ Twitter, he’s thanking all the Overwatch fans and Blizzard Entertainment for considering him as Doomfist. Earlier this year, Crews announced that he’s willing to voice Doomfist if Blizzard Entertainment takes him up on the offer. However, he didn’t get the role as Doomfist doesn’t sound like him. If Crews got the role, many fans would expect an exaggerated muscleman personality from Doomfist. Many fans got excited as Crews was known for his funny roles in comedy films like White Girls and his loud character in the Old Spice commercials.
OverwatchGG tweeted that the American theater director and actor, Sahr Ngaujah, provided the voice for Doomfist. We may not have gotten that shouting bodybuilder voice but Ngaujah’s performance does the job alright. So far, Ngaujah adds to the Overwatch voice acting cast who aren’t universally popular but they do a stellar voice work for their characters.
Doomfist’s conversational voice sounds deep with an African tone to it. Meanwhile, his battle grunts might not sound like Crews but he does sound a lot like Arnold Schwarzenegger. This Schwarzenegger voice can be heard when he uses his wind-up fist attack on his right click button.
Currently, Doomfist is now playable on the Overwatch public test region servers on the PC and nowhere else. Fans will have to wait for at least a week until Doomfist gets released on the live servers. If we count his attack on the Numbani airport in Orisa’s teases, Doomfist’s release has already been teased for a long time. Stay updated with more Overwatch news here on The BitBag.
