Ok, I am not sure how much I believe this rumor, but I was sworn to secrecy on it, which might mean it is true, A Redshirt friend of mine told me that his big boss had sent down the line word that in 5th edition, we will see the emperor leave the golden throne. I was told GW was going "The Star-Child" route. The only reason I am even posting this that this friend has proved right in past, and his source seems solid.

Sleeping, not dead.

First of all, don't believe Redshirts. So many lies have sprouted from their contagious mouths...
Second, the 40k universe will most likely never progress beyond the 41st millenium. Quite a bunch of characters would be made unusable then (Eldrad, Lysander, to name only two).
Also, the "star schild" theory is, like, 20-25 years old and have barely been mentioned since then. It is no longer considered a vital part of the fluff.
FluffMaster on a mission to turn people to the Sisters of battle, yes folks it's all about SoB squads in Repressors with lots of flamer templates for the win.
I really think he's pulling your leg...
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Emperor removal is never going to happen though.
There again, now I have said that...

Storyline advancement would be nice, but I doubt it will ever happen.
Medusa V happened in 006.M42, so we are already advanced.
The emperor though is crucial to everything that has gone before in 40k, and will be in the future.
I can't say I've seen it all but I live for the things that keep me hollow.
We've already had special characters who are dead (Macharius, Tycho) and age is really no matter in 40K. Humans can easily reach multiple hundreds of years (Eisenhorn and a load are mentioned in his books), Eldar even longer, Chaos live in the Warp where time runs differently, Necrons ...... well that one's obvious. Has it been mentioned how long Orks can live? Given their toughness I'd expect they keep going a long time.
So yeah, overall age and death aren't really a concern as special characters go.
