    Grammar Question - Pulling my hair out.

    The book is being written in 3rd person.

    The excerpt is below:


    “Where are the others?” Eilon said casting a quick measured look around the small grove. Servants of the Elders never traveled alone and in his current condition he’d never make it out alive if they wanted him dead. His mission to stop the Old Ones from awakening will have failed before it began."




    The last sentence.
    Would it be:

    His mission to stop the Old Ones from awakening would have failed before it begun.

    or

    His mission to stop the Old Ones from awakening will have failed before it began.

    I want to write, "will have failed," but I'm not sure.
