In news that I didn’t cover because I’m lazy bastard, voice actor for Odessa Cubbage in Half-Life 2, John Patrick Lowrie, recently said on his personal blog that Half-Life 3 was not in development at the moment due to Valve being at a roadblock with motion capture technology.
Lowrie has since removed that comment from his blog and explained why he said what he said.
“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,” said Lowrie.
The voice actor apologized for the confusion he caused and stated that the best info you are going to get out of the project is from Gabe Newell himself.
“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.”
