Why should the "ne" be included - is it another negative form?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate semi-regular -oyer, -ayer, -uyer verbs in Le Futur (future tense)"

Bonjour Steven ! This "ne" is not a negation here, but what we call in French the "ne explétif".
We also have this lesson How to understand the ne explétif.
I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
