The only true explanation was given by Rockstar themselves 5 years ago: http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/19861/grand-theft-auto-iii-your-questions-answered-part-one-claude-dar.html

I wonder why people even after that keep wondering...

He's really got an embarrassing voice. You know like a high pitched nerd.

My Guess, he's just a hired gun that lives by the "No questions asked" mantra. And knows it could get him killed.

 

Plus Claude could be the first and only Protagonist to not actually talk. Think about that.

I don't think he wants to talk at all. Maybe he learned that he didn't need to talk in life to make it big.

I thought it was because Catalina shot him in his mouth, but then he's also in GTA SA so...

I selected others. Rockstar explained why.

Check out the GTA III 10 anniversary. Claude does not talk because an personality issue, also because they didn't figure out how to make NPC's talk.

 

 

It may now seem obvious that people should all talk in games, but this was not necessarily the case in 2001, certainly not in an open world game. We were making up a lot of procedures as we went along, and we decided that the NPCs (Non Playable Characters) should talk and we would have to figure out how to make them talk (using motion captured cutscenes, something that had never really been done before, at least not on the scale we were doing it). So we decided that the game’s protagonist would not talk, partly to aid people identifying with him, but mostly because we had so many other problems to solve and this did not seem like a major issue. We started to discuss introducing a talking lead character when working on Vice City, but it was a lot of work. While the structure of GTA3 may seem obvious or natural now, and the use of cutscenes made in the game’s engine that look and feel like the game may seem simple and easy, it really was not the case back in 2001 when we had to figure out all of these things for the first time. Oh and in San Andreas, CJ calls Claude a mute because he does not talk and CJ finds this unnerving.

Muteness has become part of his character, whether intentional or not. They could've easily hired a voice actor for San Andreas after all the success they had with III and Vice City.

essentially it was too much work for R* at the time hence why he's mute but I always liked the idea when he got shot by Catalina it damaged his voicebox.

The main question is why nobody asks him why he isn't talking? Maybe every one in liberty city is scared of Claude 😂

^Because you don't step into a random person in the street just to ask him if he can talk.

 

And even less if such person is carrying a gun.

The GTAO Protagonist is supposed to be your own voice and plus the protagonist talks to Simeon during a phone call cutscene.

Claude's bosses couldn't care less if he can talk or not.

R* gave an explanation, but f**k their explanation. I vote for the second option, just because that's the one which made more sense and I can't think of an other explanation...
