During the 2023 PlayStation Showcase, Destiny 2 developer showed a teaser trailer for the game’s next upcoming expansion, The Final Shape, which is slated to release at some point in 2024.
The trailer features a conversation between two characters: The Warlock Vanguard Ikora Rey, and — shockingly — Cayde-6, the fan-favorite Hunter Vanguard Exo that has been believed to be dead since the start of Destiny 2’s 2018 Forsaken DLC.
It’s currently not clear how Cayde has returned, as he lost his connection to the Traveler’s Light when his Ghost was destroyed by the Scorn. Initially, some fans thought that the scene was a flashback, but this was quickly proven to be impossible when the camera zoomed out and showed the same multicolored triangular portal in the sky that was imprinted on the Traveler during the events of the recent Lightfall expansion.
The trailer also revealed that the next Destiny Showcase will be hosted on August 22, 2023. Previous showcases have given fans a closer look at what they can expect from the next DLC, so players can look forward to learning more about The Final Shape during this upcoming one.
