Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s leading voice actor Elias Toufexis says he is losing jobs due to the popularity of his Deus Ex protagonist Adam Jensen.
Xbox360 Achievements report that one such job was that of the lead role in Far Cry 3. During a presentation at MCM Comic Con in London, Toufexis revealed that he spent two years recording the voice of Far Cry 3 protagonist Jason Brody, but that Ubisoft dropped him from the role after Deus Ex: Human Revolution was launched
“There’s a game called Far Cry 3, which I’m sure you guys know, where I had played Jason Brody,” stated Toufexis.
“When Deus Ex came out they replaced me.”
He says Ubisoft effectively said they don’t want people playing their game and “thinking of another game.”
“It’s understandable, but my normal voice is what I used for that character too,
“So now it’s like I’m losing work because Jensen is so popular,” he added.
