He probably doesn't talk because of the crime.

He tries to stay as quiet to possibly stop him self from saying something that wouldn't be likable because most crime bosses are sensitive to anything, so he decided to be mute.

That seems about right, especially seeing as almost all of his bosses flew off the handle at the slightest thing.

I'd say he simply doesn't feel a need to. Whether to his bosses or not.

This reason is a possibility;

 

 

Claude doesn't speak because he's french and doesn't speak english.
 
Claude isn't mute. When he's injured he grunts and groans in pain. He is capable of producing sound, but he never speaks. At the same time, he sports a distinctly French name and his origins are never explored. It could be that he's a frenchman who just doesn't speak English (but understands it) and thus doesn't talk to other chracters because he doesn't know how to, since they all speak English.

I should probably bring up this article again where R* tells us why Claude didn't speak: http://www.rockstarg...claude-dar.html

 

They tell us the technical reason there. They were dealing with new technology and it was hard to make characters talk and move and so they decided to leave out the voice for the main character. The in-game\story reason could be that he simply lost his trust in people ever since Catalina betrayed him. We sort of know that he loved her since he hesitated to shoot her during that mission at the Panlantic construction site. R* cleverly decided that he shouldn't talk in the three cutscenes he appears in in San Andreas just to preserve the mystery surrounding the character. It would have been weird if he had suddenly decided to speak.

Claude doesn't speak because his action speaks for himself.

How could you use he doesn't have a tongue? That's completely weird. Just because CJ said that as a joke in GTA: SA, it doesn't mean it's true.

Claude only makes voices when he is being shot, falls from a certain height and gets wasted.

I would say it was because Catalina shot him in the intro, since you can hear him gasp when he gets shot, along with some breathing.

 

Although he didn't talk in SA, that might be because he was in a car 80% of the time, and probably because R* don't want to reveal his voice.

Not mentioning that Carl said "mute asshole". It was cuz he never said anything, but a CJ didn't know that he is a mute.

You know what. I'd like to believe in the "tongue cut out" explanation.

Mainly because it would make sense, in a way. 

Not wanting to talk? Not even a word? Nothing?

I dunno, but that's a little bit too far fetched. Atleast imo.

Catalina shooting at him? Maybe. That's another good theory.

I'd like Claude to talk. I'd imagine him having some bad ass no bs way of talking.

The official reply given by rockstar is majorly of tech-nature. The process to animate characters and give the illusion that their speaking is quite difficult to create, III being rockstar's first 3d title you can imagine the archievement to get all these nice talking animated figures during the cutscene, making Claude talk aswell would have been to difficult.

 

Of course they also searched for a canon explanation, which is not far from what most of the peeps say here. A man of few words.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

 

 

 

He doesn't talk because R* didn't want to , they never planned for him to talk , and they created one of the most badass and menacing characters ever .

1st Reason - Claude was shot in the 1st mission
2nd reason - Rockstar reimagined GTA 2 in 3d
and they set the city to liberty plus
GTA 2 claude doesnt talk so they
followed the old game.
3rd reason - Rockstar cant find a perfect voice
Actor for claude.
4th reason - Rockstar planned that they were
Putting the voice in the next game.
GTA Vice City.
5th reason - Early rockstar is not intelligent.
Enough to program such other things
6th reason - Rockstar wants it basic first.
Without voice,planes and heli riding.

Feel free to post other reasons.
But i heard a bunch of claude's pain sounds like drowning and falling.

Some people don't like to talk. My theory on Claude is that he's just that type of person, and most likely he's French as well. Maybe his accent sucks and he chooses not to embarrass himself in front of his bosses? Regardless, it worked out pretty well for him. Sometimes it's better to just stay silent and not say a word :catloaf:

 

@BeatenbyMichaelDeSanta,

 

GTA 2's Claude does say something in the short film.
