Destiny 2: Forsaken looks to kill off a fan-favourite character, according to a new story trailer, with spoilers below for those who didn’t catch it during Sony’s E3 conference.
The expansion sees players return to The Reef, which has fallen into lawlessness after a fleet of dangerous Barons escape the Prison of Elders.
A mission to put things right goes awry, though, and appears to show the end of Cayde-6 – the chatty Hunter voiced by Nathan Fillion. Eagle-eyed fans have suggested it’s actually Prince Uldren, the snide brother of the Queen from Destiny 1 – who does the deed.
Of course, the jury is out on whether this actually happens for sure. That said, a press release seemingly confirms as much: “Facing insurmountable odds, Cayde-6 ends up paying the ultimate price. Beyond the Vanguard’s authority, you’ll venture into the Reef alone and take justice into your own hands.”
What do you think? Is Bungie willing to kill off Cayde? Guess we’ll find out come September 4th.
Currently unused voice files which referenced the death of Cayde were found in the game’s PC files last year.
