Of course but I think in this situation its the writers originally intended was for the Voice to be killed, but changed their mind to the Emperor being killed. It could change back but seems unlikely. But yeah, its not completely and actually official yet, by at least IMO I think this is the case. Both because of what Hood said, and for various other reasons. I could expand but I don't want to clog this thread.
While this is true, one should remember, untill it's implemented in game, what the Lead Writer said can be changed.
"Yeah. That's what we originally intended, but we changed our mind."
