The Half-Life 3 rumor mill continues to grow, as the Half-Life voice actor who last week said that the long-awaited sequel was no longer in development has now claimed that he ‘misspoke’ about the who situation. The actor in question is John Patrick Lowrie, who voiced Odessa Cubbage in Half-Life 2. Last week he said that “as far as I know they are not developing HL3 now for several reasons.”
The comment has now been removed from Lowrie’s personal blog, and has been replaced with an explanation as to the U-turn.
“My comments just seemed to cause a whole bunch of confusion and when I tried to minimize the confusion I misspoke and caused a whole bunch more confusion,” he said. “The most important thing to know about voice actors is that we’re the last to know anything. We don’t find out about a project until we get hired to do voices for it.
“What I was trying to say before (and failed) is that whatever Gabe Newell has to say about a project is the best info you’re going to get. He owns the company and knows what’s going on. Sorry that I gave the impression that I know what’s going on. I really wasn’t trying to and I really don’t know.”
