Nolan North and Troy Baker are two of the most talented voice actors. Who wouldn’t want them in their games? Well, there was a time when Sony didn’t. Troy Baker’s casting almost happened for The Order 1886. But for some reason, Sony said no. Ready At Dawn wanted Troy to play Sir Galahad in The Order 1886 but unfortunately, it didn’t happen.
Speaking at the E3 Coliseum Troy Baker revealed what happened.

Ready At Dawn and Sony went with Steve West for Sir Galahad. The Hollywood actor/voice actor played “Mike The Bachelor” in “Best Night Ever.” He is also known for playing “Cyrus Albright” in Octopath Traveler.
Troy Baker may come on-board for the sequel to The Order 1886. The first game released during the early days of PS4. While The Order 1886 2 was in the pipeline it never saw the light of day.
According to Ready At Dawn, plans for The Order 1886 2 were in motion even before the release of the first game. The original PS4 exclusive game released with a sequel in mind. In fact, the background and story of The Order 1886 2 characters were already written.
Even before the release of the game, we put a lot of work on the foundations of why each of these characters is who they are, where they came from, what is behind the story.
Not 1886, but what’s behind the story. We asked ‘Where did it start? Where is it going’?
There is a lot of story that was already written, because we felt, again, writing a game and just kind of isolating it to just the story that it would’ve been was not enough for us.
The critical reception of The Order 1886 sealed its fate. Despite fans not seeing any hope for a sequel Ready At Dawn CEO Ru Weerasuriya said “the IP has a future.”
He believes the future is already built into the IP. There is a larger storyline that can be explored at any time. With The Order 1886, the developers explore a micro story within macro lore that keeps going. “It is an IP that is actually bigger than the storylines we have created,” said Ru. The Order 1886 2 is not out of the question. Back in 2015, chief executive Paul Sams also expressed his desire to develop The Order 1886 2.
If The Order 1886 2 ever comes to fruition Troy Baker might be the first choice for Sir Galahad. The sequel of The Order 1886 is without a doubt a PS5 game at this point.
