Voice actor apologises for Half-Life 3 comment

halflifeThe voice actor who claimed that Half-Life 3 was no longer in development now claims he “misspoke” about the project.

John Patrick Lowrie, who voiced Odessa Cubbage in Half-Life 2 and is married to GlaDOS voice actress Ellen McLain, recently claimed that “as far as I know they are not developing HL3 now for several reasons”.

It was suggested that Valve has suspended work on its follow-up to Half-Life 2: Episode 2 due to a technical hurdle it has yet to overcome in the field of motion capture.

Lowrie has since removed the comment on his personal blog, replacing it with an explanation on why he has reneged on his previous claim.

“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 voice actor suggested he is not an authority on the subject.

“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.”
