Some players are accidentally skipping Remnant 2’s post-credits scene. Beating the game’s final boss will trigger a short cutscene before causing credits to roll just like they would in any other game. However, skipping the credits will skip the post-credits scene as well.
Spoiler Warning: The remainder of this article contains spoilers for Remnant 2’s ending and post-credits scene.
The game ends with the player character unable to defeat the Root, the game’s antagonist, as it regenerates after being killed. With the Root threatening to consume all of reality, Clementine takes The Index from The Keeper to completely recreate reality without the Root. The cutscene shows familiar characters and locations turning into beams of light, as everything is transformed into data before being gathered into Clementine’s body.
Eventually, nothing is left on-screen except for The Index, floating in the void left behind. Credits start to roll, as The Index sits there, motionless for the duration of Remnant 2’s credits. After the credits end, The Keeper approaches The Index and looks at it for a moment before walking away. Suddenly, it pulsates and he turns around just in time for it to burst open in a flash of light. Then, we see characters and locations in the game restored the same way they left as the data becomes people and places again. Finally, it cuts to the player character laying on the ground in a field with their eyes closed. They bolt awake with a gasp before the cutscene ends with a fade to white.
While we don’t exactly know this cutscene’s implications, we do know that Remnant 2 is set to receive three separate DLCs over the next year. Gunfire Games has promised that the DLC would include more story content, so we’re likely to see this ending expanded upon when Remnant 2’s first DLC launches sometime in the next few months.
