So if the Master Chief is not going to be a huge factor in the Halo: Reach Xbox game (not what the link thinks!), what becomes of him in terms of people continuing to play his character?
I’m a betting man so consider the farm on the table that Mr Chief will appear in more Halo games. Especially when Frankie from 343 Industries clears it up succinctly:
“As for Master Chief, odds are he will be seen again. “I think that (his) fate, Cortana’s fate and the identity of that giant, dark planet at the ending (on the game’s hardest skill level) – that’s a spoiler – are probably big mysteries that would be irritating if they were just cliffhangers,”
“We do have a plan that goes out at least six years,” he says. “Eventually, it will become very apparent that there is a plan for the way the canon all ties together and the way the comic books and the novels all tie together.”
A six year plan for Halo which includes saving the Master Chief from permanent hibernation on half a space ship? Okay Frankie, wake me when you need me….
Any one taking bets on what the first Micosoft produced game will be?
