The 2016–2017 video game voice actor strike was a strike started in October 2016 by the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) union against 11 American video game developers and publishers over failed contract renegotiation terms that had been in discussion since February 2015. Principally,the union sought to have actors and voice and motion capture artists that contribute to video games be better compensated with residuals based on video game sales atop their existing recording payments,while the industry companies asserted that the industry as a whole eschews the use of residuals,and by giving the actors these,they would trivialize the efforts of the programmers and artists that are most responsible for the development of the games. In exchange,the companies had offered a fixed increase in rates and a sliding-scale upfront bonus for multiple recording sessions,which the union had rejected. Other issues highlighted by the strike action include better transparency in what roles and conditions actors would perform,more safety precautions and oversight to avoid vocal stress for certain roles,and better safety assurances for actors while on set.
