It’s been five months since we heard the news of Lance Reddick’s passing. This prompted many players to gather around Commander Zavala, a character he voiced in Destiny 2. You can still return to Bungie’s game in the near future to hear his voice, but the character’s new lines will sound different.
Keith David, a well-known actor in theater, TV, movies, and games, will be the new English voice of Zavala in The Final Shape and future versions. Also, the lines that Lance recorded for the game will stay the same in the upcoming update.
“I am honored to continue the great work of Lance Reddick as Zavala. Lance captured the character’s sense of integrity so wonderfully. It is my intention to continue that work.”
Bungie is happy to keep working with Keith, who they started collaborating with back in the Halo days. Lance’s iconic voice guided players through the most intense junctures in Destiny’s history. The profound impact he had on the Guardians, the community, and Bungie as a whole will remain ingrained in memory, will never be forgotten.
