So…Cayde-6 is dead. If you had any doubts about Cayde during the trailer, Steve Cotton and Scott Taylor confirmed his death in an interview after Sony’s E3 conference.
Curse you Uldren.. You will pay
that is exactly how I feel!
sided with uldren on this one....not all guardians are good:)
But how is Cayde bad?
@D3TH_D33LR I wasn't talking about cayde at all..i was talking about guardians who dont want to be good. that and i dont care for cayde's death...im not attached to any character in the destiny universe..
Wow, kind of a strange way to reveal his death. A trailer seems like a lackluster place to kill a fan-favorite character, but maybe Bungie needed to symbolize their step forward from the outside.
Unless he dies in an early mission, and have to helplessly watch Uldren kill him. Man, that would be brutal :(
It's to sell the game. It's marketing. Look, we can kill off a puppy! We've changed!
Seems in keeping with the Destiny's been done actually.
they continuously say via their streams they don't want to give too much info, that fans should experience it for themselves and they pull this? Further proof Bungie has no idea WTF they're doing with Destiny. And as if they absolutely had to kill Cayde to keep D2 going? Lack of creativity anyone? I'm a bit pissed personally. Cayde was awesome!! Why not kill Zavala instead? I mean does anyone truly enjoy or like his blue, awoken ass?
Bungie go ahead and nail your coffin. Your franchise is nearly dead with your poor decisions and anti consumer dlc pricing. Now another poor decision and killing off the best character. Lol good luck with all that.
not really. look at the outcry out there. his was a martyr's death. you know what usually happens when a martyr dies right? besides, this gives them space to grow and they can change how they approach characters now. they can change the other two to make them more relatable because of this. they can even introduce another character as likeable as cayde (doubtful). They gave themselves space to be able to write the best revenge story ever. will they deliver? probably not.
His death was in vain...
Should have killed off Tess instead, even if it's just to replace her with someone else for Eververse, killing off Tess would have gone down really well with the fanbase.
he isnt dead. thats just to rope people in. they will just say "sorry we lied" later
Wow... I was going to go back to Destiny 2 after taking a long break.... but now... never mind, thanks to Bungies stupid a** decision to kill off the best character in the game! How is killing Cayde off going to improve Destiny 2? It's not his fault you f**ked up your game!
Eh, he'll probably come back as a ghost.
Destiny is 9.99 right now, and Cayde-6 is gone? Maybe he'll get the Optimus Prime treatment.
I had a hard time take Destiny's story seriously, the first one barely had any and the second was pretty cheesy and mediocre. The universe is super interesting, but their "light vs dark" dynamic is so nerdy it makes me cringe a little.
Cayde-6's death could also be viewed as a symbolic gesture towards all the fans who died and left the franchise. Too soon?
never really cared about that character
I was at a movie theater watching Sony's E3...I went to the bathroom when this came on.
“Guys I got it! We’ll kill the only charming character in the game and charge more money.” This’ll win the fans back.
What are they charging more money for? Is Forsaken priced higher than The Taken King was? I just googled it TTK was also $40, that's pretty standard for expansion packs (different from DLC). It's up to Bungie to demonstrate if Forsaken shakes the game up on the same level as TTK. Then we can start making value judgments.
