Among the Guardians of the Galaxy, there is a style of communication that is distinctive. Audiences are well aware of this thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and so anyone portraying these characters needs to mimic it correctly. That means, to truly get a sense of how the guardians function as a team, it is essential to pick the right cast.
While we have little information about who was selected for these roles, we do have a source that seems reliable. Information on IMDB appears to be unconfirmed by any voice acting cast member site, which is suspicious. But it's still better than nothing.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Game Voice Actors & Cast
We have two confirmed cast members, and they are John McLaren as Star-Lord and Kimberly-Sue Murray as Gamora. This is 'confirmed' through the IMDB page for Square Enix's Guardians of the Galaxy. We are still waiting for Rocket, Groot, and Drax's voice actors.
McLaren is best known for his role as Jesse Stanton in Heartland. In addition to being a TV actor, John has been cited as being involved with FarCry 5, although the exact role he played has not been disclosed on the game's IMDB page. The trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy shows that John McLaren is doing a great job as Star-Lord.
As a screenwriter, actress, and producer, Kimberly-Sue Murray is well known. Although she does not list any video game experience on her IMDB page, it is evident that she has a lot of experience in Hollywood. From the trailer, Kimberly adds a lot of the standoffish nature we know Gamora for, making her a welcome addition to the cast.
