It probably is close to the truth. If Death kills Soma, Dracula's souls is freed to move on to another host and maybe this next person wouldn't be nearly such a goody-two-shoes.

My favorite Aria of Sorrow-era joke that I made about Death was an "explanation" for why he just... attacks Soma Cruz without a word even though Soma is Dracula's Reincarnation.

Quote
Death: <sees Soma's soul> Oh shit, it's YOU!
Soma: uhhh... have we met?
Death: OH NO! MY BEST FRIEND IS BURIED INSIDE THIS KID!
Soma: <increasingly concerned> UHHHH WHAT
Death: <wildly swinging Scythe> IT'S OKAY DRAC OLD BUDDY!! I'LL GET YOU OUT OF THERE!!!
Soma: <panicked screaming>

Whether Death or not, it certainly follows the standard Konami writing style to introduce supposed allies, like Seward, and then rug pull to reveal that Seward is in service of Dracula's cult while Hermina was actually working with Soma to prevent him transforming into the beast. Order of Ecclesia had a similar plot structure (minus Soma, of course).

If it actually helps to complete the game and get us the whole story of that game, that wouldn't be bad. It would just be nice to see if Hermina was actually a villain or not. I suspect not.

Yeah, I suspect Death is pulling strings, trying to get his Best Friend back and seeing her as an accessory to that effect.

I mean, ideally, I'm hoping the delay is because they're taking the time to also come up with an Act 6.

since they recently had a Halloween event, i’d like to think they’re still actively involved with the game and we will be seeing further updates.

Seems logical. Unfortunately, given that this is Konami, the "team" they have handling this is probably like 6 guys who don't even have backgrounds in game development and were simply assigned the  job because they pissed someone off higher up the chain.

Not so, actually: https://toucharcade.com/2021/10/05/an-interview-with-castlevania-grimoire-of-souls-director-yota-tsutsumizaki/

They aren't "ignoring" the updates so much as they are starting over. They reworked a lot of things, so it makes sense to me that they would begin with the initial version and add the chapters over time, just like with the soft launch.

So I'm not gonna hold my breath waiting. Oh well. At least I have Trials and Orders to grind and gear to upgrade whilst I wait.

Fight it Lumi, fight it! This does not taunt me!  >:(  Nothing from Konami will ever taunt me unless it's a true CV game in the works.
