Destiny 2 fans flock to the Tower to honor Lance Reddick’s Zavala
Fans mourn the passing of Lance Reddick who played roles in John Wick’s films. The Wire, BoschPlease see the following: Fringe. There’s been an outpouring of tributes and remembrances on social media, both from admirers of Reddick’s work, and the actors who workedWith him.
But Destiny players are mourning Reddick’s passing in a different way, by visiting his character, Commander Zavala, en masse in the Tower in Destiny 2. Players are hugging, saluting, or simply sitting in silence side-by-side in the game’s main social space, offering tributes to the character and the man who voiced him.
Destiny players have a deep connection to Reddick’s Zavala. He’s been with them, serving as the Titan Vanguard, since the beginning. For many longtime Destiny players (Titan-class players in particular), Reddick’s been a daily presence in their gaming lives for nearly a decade. Zavala, a central figure in Destiny’s history and an ever-present presence at Tower, is vital. It’s not clear how, or even if, Bungie will replace Reddick as Zavala, or whether Zavala as a character will continue to be a presence in Destiny 2.
For now, here’s how Destiny players and Bungie employees are paying tribute to the late actor.
So many touching tributes for Lance Reddick in the Tower. We are grateful for all that you bring to the world, and especially the Destiny 2 universe. You could count on Commander to keep you focused on your mission. Lance, Rest in Peace! Your presence will be missed forever. pic.twitter.com/LpWMbfnvZN
