Fans are no doubt excited to hear that the voice actor will reprise his role as the Ghost as well as another game trailer scheduled this week.
Nolan North was reportedly interviewed by the ETC Show and surprisingly revealed his return in "Destiny 2". According to Game Rant, during the interview, North was asked if he was still involved with Bungie's sequel to their popular sci-fi shooter. The voice actor reportedly answered with "eyes up, Guardian" using the Ghost's voice. He followed with a statement that said "yeah. I don't know if I'm supposed to say that, but you know what? I just did. So, confirmed."

It's already obvious that fans already expected Nolan North to make his return in "Destiny 2" as the Ghost. He replaced Peter Dinklage as the voice of the Guardian's companion ever since "The Taken King" expansion. North's confirmation seems to coincide with Bungie's promise to bring back memorable characters in the sequel. The first video trailer for the sequel even showcases Nathan Fillion as Cayde-6, which definitely hints that all the original voice actors will make a comeback in the shooter's sequel.
Fans were reportedly taken by surprise when Nolan North started to voice the Ghost when "The Taken King" expansion came out. However, ever since he started being the man behind the player's companion, gamer don't see any reason for Bungie to replace him in "Destiny 2". His confirmation during the interview also reveals that the Ghost will still play a part in the sequel.
Gamenguide revealed that an Easter Egg in "Destiny: Age of Triumph" briefly pays homage to Peter Dinklage as the Ghost's voice switches back to the original for a brief moment. After clearing his throat, its voice goes back Nolan North's. "Destiny 2" is speculated to launch in September and is expected to release for the PS4, Xbox One and the PC.
