Who are the Architects?

When I die from unusual accidents but primarily just being a dumbass i get the message "killed by the Architects". This reminds me a lot of back in Halo 3 when i would be a dumbass and the game would tell me i was killer by the Guardians. So, who/what are the Architects?

  • This is still speculation and I'm not claiming to know what's the real answer (because not knowing makes it more fun), but "death by architect" is caused by the game physics engine killing you. Stopping inertia, environment explosions, getting crushed, etc. In general game mechanics sense, it's a catch-all for any death not caused directly by enemy AI or players. Whether it means Bungie developers are making a self-referential joke that they are responsible for your death because they made the physics, or if they're referencing they are using common game physics originally "architected" by someone else, I can't be sure of.
