A frenzy of anticipation filled the air at the latest PlayStation Showcase as Bungie unveiled a teaser of the shocking return of a beloved character in Destiny 2, the roguish Cayde-6.
Fans will remember the tragic loss of Cayde-6 during the release of the Forsaken expansion. But in a turn of events that has left the Destiny 2 community electrified, the trailer gives us a glimpse of the legendary hunter standing beside Ikora Ray in a mysterious realm. Dressed in his familiar armor and holding a spectral, reconstructed version of his iconic gun, Cayde-6 looks ready to step back into the fray.
Adding to the excitement, Bungie has confirmed that Nathan Fillion will once again take on the role as Cayde-6 in The Final Shape. Fillion’s suave, roguish charm lent depth to Cayde-6’s character in earlier installments, and fans are eager to see how he will inhabit this uncanny return. However, the exact storyline detailing his surprising resurgence remains under wraps.
