Question about English (US)

Hi guys! Are grammar nerds in da house? 😁
I'm currently reading "Aleph" by Paulo Coehlo and there is this structure I'm little bit confused about and would like to clarify it for myself.
********************************************
The excerpt from the book if context is needed (I'm confused about the last sentence and particularly "will"):

Hilal shows me the photo on her cell phone, possibly taken just after dawn. It’s a photo of a long cloud in the sky.
“Do you see?”
Yes, I can see a cloud.
“We’re being accompanied on this journey.”We’re being accompanied by a cloud that will long since have disappeared forever.
********************************************

Is "will" in this case used as "must"?

Thank you in advance for you answers! 🤗
