This thread will be about Halo 5 theories, I'll share mine and some made by friends.

The Spartan on the top is Master Chief with new armor, possibly Forerunner armor.
The image of his old armor is a reflection of how he feels (it's like he's looking back on his former self).

Just for reference, here are some Forerunner armors:



So, what is the location of the E3 2013 video?

I think that Master Chief is at the Ark, here is an image of the middle of the Ark:

Now, why is Chief here? Well, the Forerunner AI named 032 Mendicant Bias is located at the Ark and he's been observing the Chief ever since Halo 2. Chief has come to the Ark to retrieve Mendicant Bias so it can succeed the now deceased Cortana.

Interesting theory. The ONI logo on the armor makes things quite puzzling, however.

I think the new ONI spartan could possibly be a new generation developed under their secrecy, based on recent discoveries in Forerunner technology. This one in particular may be trying to hunt down the Chief for whatever reason. I sense a split storyline much like Halo 2's.

EDIT: Ooh nice catch on the Ark. I think you are right on the money. It would also be cool to see if any other Halo's will be visited from the Ark's portal (if it survived).

Something cool my friend just found out.

Both of their hands are in a similair position. Something else to note is that the two Spartans images are mirrored, the Spartan on the top has his gun in his right hand and the reflection of Chief makes it appear that his gun is in his left hand.

My theory. Halo 5 campaign will be confusing annoying. And undoubtedly incomprehensible.

If I had a say, it should go something like this:

1. Leave cortana dead, don't go hollywood and try and revamp her like they did with ROBOCOP and godzilla.

2. Form another alliance with the elites, against some sort of prophet revenge scenario.

3. Stop adding new perks, remove the standard sprint option and change it back to be an equipment option only like in reach.

4. Go halo2, and allow us to play multiple characters throughout the story line, even maybe the flood.

5. Ship to ship engagements would be nice, however they shouldn't drag on like in H4 and at the same time any space level should have a level of dynamism, to keep us interested.

( e.g. Aaaaa where in space just slip on the auto pilot, OMG A BLACK HOLE!!!)

6. DO NOT Change master chiefs Armour inexplicably again like at the start of 4. And a nice feature would be for us to create and customize our own Armour for the chief.

(I dunno 343, make up some story that the ONI engineers are torn between pink and violet camo)

7. YES To stereotypical female characters with busty chests and kardashian, arse's.

8. I really would crave for a flood/ dead space incursion level. (maybe some how a generic spartan succumbs to the flood, creating a super flood shieldy thing. Which we have to destroy.)

(boss battles people, they matter)

9. The Multiplayer should always be an extension to the campaign and not a one up. Each should compliment each other without trying to be more fun and important than the other feature.

10. Bring back fire fight.

11. Make a editing kit for pc :D

My theory is that with the new engine, we won't see Halo 5 ripz in a while.

Logically, there will always be a way in.

But, we need ppl for that way in.

Plus, who really wants halo 5 ripz? I mean

1. With the new engine we will probably be dealing with high poly models, textures e.t.c and even with open sauce I doubt that a majority of the halo modding community will struggle with a complete h5 ripped map.

2. Is it not considered illegal to rip there content and use it in another game? Even if it is of the same brand?

That's a grey area I am concerned about.

But why does one wield an assault rifle and the other a battle rifle?

Yeah, I don't think they'd change Chief's armor that drastically, considering he's the iconic mascot of the entire franchise and we've yet to see him out of armor (aside from his eyes and the bridge of his nose). His trademark green MJOLNIR is how we know he's the Master Chief, and not one of the new Spartan IVs.

Honestly, the shift from H3's to H4's chief armor wasn't that drastic. Sure, it had all different sorts of plates and became bulkier, but it was still enough that people could recognize who it was by looking at it.

Halo 2 Anniversary will be on xbox one to increase sales before Microsoft Sells Xbox

Because H2 was awesome.

I don't see why they should try and mess with perfection.

The same argument could be made for Jurassic park, the originals were epic why remake them?


I suppose, it could prolong 343's attempt to ruin any probably new additions to the genre. So while they are busy making something old far worse, at least they are not making something new which ruins the whole saga.

What if they are saying "New character" to emphasize that Chief has changed?

Well he's certainly going to be important if he's the one on top and Chief is the one reflected.

Otherwise, the picture should be flipped.

I still think it's emphasized on chief just being a new person. The symbolism at the end of midnight was he was finally broken at his core when cortana died right? It'd make sense that he's changed, hence being a new person and not a machine?

Maybe they will give chief a character. lel

No seriously though open world games are carried by their game play and more-so its characters.

hope they get it right.

I've never truly liked open world games. Skyrim is just boring to me. GTA is only fun to screw around in. I've never actually completed a single GTA story and I doubt that I ever have made it through half of one. "Open but Linear" like Mass Effect I can get behind.

In other words, Halo shouldn't be open world. Close it. Close it off.
Destiny looks boring.

the only open world fps that got it right was borderlands, not sure about Destiny, even like 3 months before launch details feel scarce to me.

i am not at all thrilled by the fact that halo 5 is going to be open world (tbh i really don't care about new halo games after the letdown that was halo 4) honestly from my point of view this looks like 343 is trying to copy/compete with destiny. master chiefs story ended at halo 3. that was the perfect end for him, why ruin that. the universe for this series is massive, why they couldn't move on to other stories is beyond me. IMO the best halo story was odst, and it didn't center on the master chief at all.

yeah, more people should make stuff like that for CE. Spirals looks excellent so far. but hey, it can happen, MCs story ends at Halo 6. (dammit 2019 come already)

Halo shouldn't be an open world game; one thing that I liked about all the Halo campaigns (except for ODST) was the sense of urgency when you're doing things. Rather than roaming around looking for stuff to shoot at, a lot of the time spent shooting things had you trying to save your own ass, or an enemy stood between you and an objective. You had something to do, like a responsibility. I'd rather have 343's energies be used to create well ironed-out levels rather than one huge BSP with scarce encounters.

The images we've seen an the E3 2013 video look great for an open world game. I'm gonna bring it up again, but I'd be cool for them to to take the Metroid Prime approach. One thing I like about Halo is that sometimes there's bits of platforming, I wanna see more. Metroid Prime is an open world FPS platformer and it works beautifully.

Quote: Quote from IGN.com
While it was speculated that the character may be Palmer (from Halo 4) or Cortana in some form, 343 executive producer Josh Holmes clarified on twitter that the blue-visored Spartan in the image is neither a robot Cortana nor Halo 4's Sarah Palmer. Rather, "He's a NEW character."
