The death of several Naruto characters has already been speculated in the Boruto series, however, the most recent manga chapter of Boruto Naruto Next Generations, has hinted that the death of one fan favourite could be very real.
In this chapter, we watched as Jigen enters Konoha, ready to destroy anything and anyone that gets in his way to taking Kawaki and guess who is in his way. It will be the second strongest living ninja, along with Naruto as well though, trying to save Konoha and of course, Kawaki.
However, it was the disturbing comments that Sasuke made in the previous chapter that indicates he might not be among the living anymore. Sasuke mentioned that he was willing to give his life for the safety of Konoha, which means that is he was to choose between the life of another and his own, he would choose the other.
Furthermore, we already know that Sasuke is most likely dead by the time Kawaki attacks Konoha later on in the series. This is likely why Kawaki only mentions Naruto in those opening scenes in the future, as well as why Boruto has Saskue’s headband and sword.
I have a feeling that in the next few chapters of Boruto, we might actually see the death of Sasuke, as he sacrifices himself for the citizens of Konoha. Yes, this could mean that Jigen is the one to kill Sasuke Uchiha however, remember, this is still just my theory based on everything that manga has hinted so far in the series.
