Lead Cinematic Narrative Designer, Terran Gregory said that this cinematic was meant to provide context for the new chapters going live on the 9.2 PTR this week, where Sylvanas will ultimately face the Faction leaders and inform them more of the Jailers plans, as she begins what may be her redemption story, although we will need to wait and see what fate awaits the Jailer at the end of the Sepulcher of the First Ones in Eternity's End.
