Peter Dinklage Dropped From Destiny

We're not sure how the Dinklebot Clan will feel about this one, but Peter Dinklage has been dropped completely from Destiny.

Dinklage, known for Game Of Thrones and the recent Pixels movie, provided the voice of the Ghost AI in the game.

Now it's learned with the release of the upcoming Taken King DLC, Peter Dinklage's voice in the entire game has been replaced by that of Nolan North, the voice of Nathan Drake from Uncharted and many other games.

As Game Spot notes, Bungie hired Nolan North not only to play Ghost in September's Taken King expansion, but for the franchise overall, which means Dinklage's voiceover has been wiped completely, and North re-recorded everything.

It's stated the script remains the name, and while specific reasons for dropping Dinklage are unknown, it's suggested Dinklage's take on Ghost was a bit too monotone (which might not be the actor's fault) with North bringing in more personality.

The Destiny Taken King DLC gets released September 15th.
