Bungie explains why it dropped Dinklage from Destiny
Bungie chose to replace Destiny voice work by Peter Dinklage with new dialogue recorded by Nolan North because the studio needed to work with someone who was more available.
Executive producer Mark Noseworthy told Game Informer in a new video interview that the decision wasn't based on feedback of the performance of the Game of Thrones star as Ghost.
"It's more on the [Hollywood] nonsense side of things," Noseworthy explained. "Dinklage was awesome to work with on Destiny but we just needed to work with someone who is more available. Nolan is a pro, this is his thing."
He added: "We can call him up and say 'hey, next week can we do this thing we're doing this internal play test and it would be great to get some Ghost dialogue in there instead of that robot voice that we use,' and he's available."
Ghost's role will be expanded with the launch of The Taken King, with the robot able to scan the environment for additional story info.
