Want to know how much time it takes for a voice actor to voice act in a video game? Well, you are at the right place! 

 When it comes to voice acting for games, the amount of time it takes to record the audio can vary depending on the game and various other factors. Generally, voice actors will spend several hours per week recording dialogue for a game. The time taken to produce a game with good-quality audio is usually around two to three months.
