Wiethoff has not done any voicework for games since he recorded for Red Dead Redemption.

Codename Cygnus is currently in development at Boston, Mass.-based Reactive Studios. Its existence is not a sure-thing just yet, as the game's Kickstarter campaign needs to raise just over $2,000 in the next four days to reach its $11,000 target.

Wiethoff joins a voice cast that includes Logan Cunningham (Bastion), Sarah Elmaleh (Skulls of the Shogun), Chris Ciulla (Fallout: New Vegas), and Chris Rando (Dance Central 3).

He will play the character Lazarus in one of two sidequest episodes during the game's first mission, both of which are expected to release in September, Reactive Studios said.
