Welcome to Half-Life Answers. What would you like to know?

Outside of the development team, no one would know for certain. The character was an early version of Gordon Freeman. A likely explanation is that they thought the more "stylish" appearance of the final version of Gordon would either make a better hero or be more attractive to potential buyers. There is a lot of cut material and iterations in all major game projects. It'd be equally valid to ask "Why was Captain Vance cut?" etc. etc.
