Bungie has some bad news for Destiny 2 fans who were holding out hope that fan-favorite character Cayde-6 wasn’t truly dead in the Forsaken DLC trailer.
“He’s dead. His ghost is dead,” Bungie Principal Producer Scott Taylor told GamesRadar during E3. Continuing, Taylor explained that there were several reasons for the move.
“We wanted to establish the tone of the game and show that we’re serious about it,” he explained. “We also want people to process it. You’ll play a mission with him, and you’re not really sure when this is going to happen, or how, so the emotional experience of that would be very different if you just turned on the game, you saw it and it was all just a shock. It’s actually a little more rich and interesting if you have time to sit with it and reflect.”
