Adam Jensen, star of Deus Ex: Human Revolution was voiced by Elias Toufexis and at last weekend’s MCM Comic Con in London he revealed he was also the voice of Far Cry 3’s Jason Brody for two years.
“I shouldn’t say this, but there’s a game called Far Cry 3, which I’m sure you guys know, where I had played Jason Brody,” said Toufexis. “I played him for two years, did the voice and when Deus Ex came out they replaced me because they were nervous that… ‘we don’t want people playing this game and thinking of another game.'”
He describes the decision to replace him as “understandable” as Jensen is such a popular character.
It is odd that Nolan North has never faced the same problem, he sounds exactly the same in Uncharted as he does in Assassin’s Creed and Spec Ops: The Line. His ever present voice within the gaming world was honoured by the Saints Row IV team who included a special “Nolan North” option.
