Fair reason.

Garrett is the protagonist of the Theif game which is scheduled to be released on the PC and next gen consoles. Stephen Russell voiced him in the past three games but he won’t be there in this new game and we have the reasons for that.

The game’s narrative director Steven Gallagher and audio director Jean-Christophe Verbert revealed why they made this decision.

“Stephen was considered quite heavily. We actually had him in for some preliminary vocal recordings in fact,” Gallagher said in a community interview.

“Yes, it was actually very early during development at that time that we had him involved, before we made the decision to record our actor’s voices and their movement at the same time using a full performance capture technique,” Verbert added.

“Being able to capture the voice at the same time as the actors’ movements and facial expressions, all while the actors play off each other, delivers a much more convincing experience than traditional techniques of recording each characters’ dialogue separately and then animating everything by hand afterwards.”

The game will be released in 2014. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
