Destiny 2 may have released a big expansion not too long ago with Lightfall, but Bungie made a big splash at the PlayStation Showcase with a brief clip confirming the surprise return of Cayde-6 and the next expansion, The Final Shape.
Cayde-6 will once again be voiced by actor Nathan Fillion when the fan favorite returns. Destiny 2: The Final Shape’s tease is also a teaser for the end of the decade-long Light & Darkness Saga. We will get a more detailed reveal at the upcoming Destiny Showcase, which is set for August 22nd.
The livestreamed showcase will feature the first details about the expansion, what to expect, and likely, a little more about Clayde-6’s return. Since the upcoming expansion is the conclusion to 10 years of storytelling and action, the showcase will also give a look into Bungie’s plans for the future of Destiny 2. August is still a few months away, and there will be specifics to come, but you’ll be able to tunein on the Bungie Twitch and YouTube channels on that date.
The Bungie team is not only expanding into a multi-game studio, according to CEO Pete Parsons. This is demonstrated in a big way with the studio’s other announcement at the showcase – Marathon.
“A PvP-focused extraction shooter set on the mysterious planet of Tau Ceti IV, Marathon will see players inhabit the bodies of Runners, cybernetic mercenaries who have been designed to survive the planet’s harsh environments, exploring the lost colony that once inhabited Tau Ceti’s surface. Players will engage solo or in crews of three, searching for mysterious alien artifacts, as well as for valuable loot and new weapons and gear that they can add to their collection.”
Marathon is a reimagined, PvP-first experience that Bungie is designing as inspired by the 90s Marathon IP.
