Started randomly tossing idea's about future halo story lines, whilst sleeping.

. Perhaps a game which focuses solely on the elites? (I just wanna kill me some humans for once)

. Origins of the flood? We never really understood the absolute history of the flood, all we know is there vicious desire to take over every single life form in the universe.

. S117 Finally dies? Sad I know, but I really want him to die a heroes death....or perhaps he gets converted into a combat AI?

. S117 goes flood? A few of you who read the novels might know that chiefy was actually bitten by a flood spawn, so perhaps the infection lies dormant until..........it's reawakened by something or other.

. Welcome back reach? Can't remember correctly but I am pretty sure we see reach re-healed and noble six's helmet lying dormant midst the spring like backdrop. I would really love to know how reach was revived.

. Rings? We are all aware that there are at least more than a few dozen halo rings out there. What mysteries could they hold?

. Noble6 phone home??!! Reach's ending gave me the sniffles, but did the elites really kill him? Perhaps they held him hostage hoping to learn more about the Spartan III project and humanities precious intel?



Those were a few idea's I was just tossing over, I would like to make it clear I wouldn't want many of these story lines (if they were to be bought to fruition) to star solely in a game title, perhaps a new book or even better a 4 hour movie would be more appropriate.

These are parts of an idea I have for a campaign series I'm still scriptwriting right now... which'll be out sometime in the hopefully not-so-near future. This, plus parts of the Covenant Civil War (prequel to Halo 4) and references to Red vs Blue P:

•An Infection form did breach his bodysuit, but since it didnt establish a connection to his nervous system, I see no reason it'd cause him to transform later on.
•I imagine they terraformed Reach, the same way they turned Mars into a habitable planet.

•They almost certainly killed Noble 6. Three Elites get him on the ground and run him through with an energy blade.

Hmmm, I'm not too sure. An energy blade to the abdomen doesn't mean instant death.

The elites could be like, damn this guy was good. Let's take him prisoner indoctrinate him and then release him back against his own kind.

Halo 6 noble6 confirmed......I thankyou.

You can probably expect a myriad of Halo spin-off games after the Reclaimer Saga. I think a likely arc to explore would be early Human-Covenant contact (imagine an FPS taking place on Harvest or some other significant world). Plus, there are theories going around that Halo 5: Guardians is aptly named so that they can release another Halo 5: XXX game to drag out the longevity of the Reclaimer Saga and delay Halo 6. Microsoft will milk this thing, but hopefully 343 will be tasteful about it.

If the Covenant were big on indoctrinating humans, they probably would have assimilated them like they had every previous race they had come across.

"Sangheili held a more spiteful, begrudging opinion of demons, incredulous that unworthy 'vermin' could be the cause of so much havoc. Often, Sangheili or Jiralhanae would disregard tactics and hurl themselves at demons, fighting for the honor of the kill. " - http://www.halopedia.org/Covenant_religion#Demons

I thought the Elites actually initially considered adding Humans to the Covenant but the Prophets got mad?

The Elites didn't seem to start developing the mindset that maybe Humans weren't all that bad until around Halo 2, it seems.

Well no, not exactly. In Halo: The Cole Protocol (which took place in 2535), Thel 'Vadam said noticed how Faison made Ignatio Delgado leave him behind because he was injured, and remarked that this must mean that humans valued honor somewhat.

Realizing your enemy may not all be dishonorable dirtbags is one thing, though, wanting them to join your faction is another.

Obviously this is the case, but your quote was,

Ah, my bad, I should have phrased that differently in the context:
"The Elites didn't seem to start developing the mindset that maybe Humans were worth bringing over to their side until around Halo 2, it seems."

We haven't taken control of a ship yet in halo game have we?

Perhaps that's a little ambitious..... instead of flying an actual ship maybe it would make more sense to take control of a specific but important role in a ship.......gunnery controls?

Would be kind keewl.

"The Sangheili display respect and admiration for honorable fighters, whether they are allies of the Sangheili or not; it is not unusual for the Sangheili to have such an admiration for their adversaries" (Halopedia).

You have to realize that honor is a cornerstone of their culture. To find something or someone honorable holds a lot more weight with them than it would with human society.

A little off the current topic, but I wonder when the prophets will return......it seems they were banished just after the events of halo 3, and it's noted in a particular halo novel (which escapes my memory) that they were exiled/and or removed from power as leaders.

Maybe there return in the future games could spark civil wars between the prophet/brute/elite empire......

So they're basically more Japanese than the Japanese... Gotcha. Also the future Halo games are going to suck. Halo 4 made Halo 2 look like a masterpiece in comparison.


I'm going to have to agree with this.

Pretty much. Even Bushido has some semblance of logic about it; the Elite's code of honor goes hand in hand with religious zealotry with predictable results.

I can add Elites to my game that I'm currently working on, anybody wanna see it? Okay.
I'm working on an FPS/RPG based game, with a new version of RPG Beta6 map as my main Multiplayer map, enjoy.










I might keep you guys updated on it, if Dennis allows me to, but if you want me to add anything in let me know, I already have multiplayer working on it, a console (with lots of custom "fun" commands), and 6 other MP maps so far.

I'm not sure if you're aware, but this is also very similar to Germany's attitude during the second world war. They respected countries who volunteered to fight, and not sit back until the war came to them.

saw the topic, first thing that came to mind was "doomed" but then I realized, oh wait halo custom edition exists, then I realized that there may be hope from someone who isn't M$ or 343i

nonetheless

I see the timeline future of halo where possibly everyone's hero has a grandchild following in his footsteps as humanity is under attack again, possibly flood returns, or covenant is reformed by a new religious belief

Although I considered Halo 2 to be a masterpiece regardless :-)

I'm still clutching at straws with the whole "return of Noble6" Idea but it kind feels super far fetched.

I want to direct the attention towards the implementation of non stolen kiddie spartans seen in h4. (10/10 term)

Since it's now feasible according to halo 4's time line to make an ordinary guy a spartan, I think it would be interesting to say the least if they made the ODSt character "Rookie" from H3 ODST into a spartan.
