Destiny 2 players can expect upcoming performances from Lance Reddick.


Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2 players can expect new performances from actor Lance Reddick in the future following the news of his passing at the age of 60.

In a recent blog post detailing this week in Destiny 2, the developer addressed the tragic passing of Lance Reddick, who portrayed Commander Zavala in the game and spoke about his impact on the Destiny community through the years he played the character.

"On Friday, we all learned of the tragic news of Lance Reddick’s passing at the age of 60," Bungie said. "As the voice of Commander Zavala--the stalwart commander of the Vanguard--Lance brought to life a character who has become virtually synonymous with Destiny itself. For nearly a decade, Guardians around the world have found purpose and comfort in Zavala’s presence, bolstered by that unmistakable voice, so full of strength, serenity, and nobility."
