The most obvious sequel in existence pulled back the curtain on its reimagined story via a cheeky trailer featuring Nathan Fillion’s Cayde 6. With a welcome emphasis on story being a response to much of the criticism of the original, it is fair to wonder what form the sequel will take. Expansions fixed many of the original’s key issues, but the problematic skeleton that turned away millions could not be fully remedied.
