Spoiler Inform is a famous sidearm in Future 2, which was reintroduced to the recreation in August for Period of the Lost, and bears the description: “An individual is likely to die.” That is not terribly remarkable in itself—that’s rather a lot how Future 2 goes, following all—but this individual weapon’s presence could be a sign of very undesirable information ahead for one particular of the game’s key figures.
Spoiler Warn, with that same description, was originally extra to the activity with the Destiny 2: Warmind DLC that went are living in May well 2018. Just a number of months afterwards, in September, the Destiny 2: Forsaken growth went live—and Cayde-6, the substantially-beloved Hunter Vanguard, went the other way. Despite my anticipations, he has not returned, and his dying is more and more looking like a everlasting progress.
That is portentous—maybe even ominous—but it could also be a simple coincidence. Ideal? Properly, no. In a chat with GamesRadar about the buildup to Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, senior narrative designer Nikko Stevens pretty specifically shot down that probability.
“It’s not a coincidence,” Stevens said. “That is all I will say.”
Senior narrative direct Julia Nardin was even considerably less handy, declining to comment on the concern outright.
It is really possible that Zavala or Ikora, the remaining two-thirds of the first Destiny 2 Vanguard, could be on the chopping block. But inside sources—by which I indicate resident Destiny machine Tim Clark—reckon that the key candidate is in fact Osiris, the notorious Warlock who has played a pivotal part in the game’s modern seasonal narrative. (Which, by the way, I am informed is so fantastic that other live assistance video games ought to be getting notes.)
Lately, Osiris turned the prisoner of Savathûn, the Witch Queen, right after his ghost, Sagira, was killed. (Potentially in big component mainly because the voice actor Morena Baccarin was getting to be difficult to pin down.)
Savathûn then employed Osiris’ form to infiltrate the Town, spying on the guardians and inveigling herself into their plans. That subterfuge was lately uncovered by the returning Awoken Queen, Mara Sov, (you should maintain up at the again), so the query now gets irrespective of whether Osiris is really being held prisoner, or whether he’s already useless. And if he has gone bye bye, it really is going to occur as a specific shock to his partner, the exo Saint-14.
It’s all soapy things, but a lot of exciting for the gamers, with contemporary narrative nuggets doled out each individual week as aspect of a seasonal questline. Destiny 2 YouTuber, and sometime Laptop Gamer correspondent, Myellin Games breaks down the Osiris things below. And I am scared it can be a quite convincing argument he’s a goner.
Other possible candidates for the axe involve Mara Sov and Crow/Uldren. Or it could all be a massive misdirect. I am really positive I predicted the similar factor about Cayde-6 in Forsaken, nevertheless, so I feel this time close to I am going to just wait around quietly to see how it all shakes out. Future 2: The Witch Queen is slated to go are living on February 22, 2023, but will not rule out the significant twist landing right before then as section of the recent period.
