Early Predictions on Halo 5

The Late Night Gamer: Speculation has been swirling around Halo 5 since a February 2011 news segment displayed an “Inside Halo 5″ placeholder graphic long before Halo 4 was even announced. Though, it was no secret that development would continue on one of the biggest franchises in gaming history. Now just 9 months after the release of Halo 4, the gaming world is abuzz with Halo 5 rumors and gossip. (Halo 5: Guardians, Xbox One)

I hope he <SPOILERS> finds out that Cortana is still alive, she's a part of him and usually in the games despite being an AI she's more human then him.

Indeed. I was looking over the destiny Video Documentaries and they were talking about inspirations for races and when showing their like cyborg robot class they talked about being inspired by Master Chief and the cold emotionless stare from the picture just reminded me of him. I Hope that 343 knocks this one out of the park, its make or break now.

I think if they just have Master Chief and him coming along generic soldier characters then the game is going to be quite boring. All that soldier stuff with the US Infinity was boring in Halo 4. I'd rather the story focus on the Master Chief, Cortana and other species across the Galaxy.

I think Cortana might be what he's looking for, surley she would of backed herself up onto a disc or something. What he has in the reveal trailer seems like her chip, the fact he's holding it either suggests he's still grieving over her or he's looking for her.

You never know the Composer can turn Humans into Prometheans, machines, so who is to say in this universe there isn't a machine to turn an AI human. Imagine Cortana as a human being...it's all she's ever wanted.

@ Foxtrot The UNSC is pretty intertwined with Master Chief though it could of probably been done better in Halo 4. IDK if the guy who trained the spartan 2's is still alive. He apparently was viewed a father figure to MC during his training. Would of been great to see him clash as he goes against his orders as the man who trained him. It could have opened up to events in MC past as well revealing more about his backstory before what took place during Halo CE to 3

This is just my personal opinion.

Only prediction I know....halo 5 will be a console seller.

I hope it goes back to it's roots. Halo 4 had terrible techno music in game, QTE's, A stupid English arch villain like some cheesy movie. Infact the music wasn't even half as good as it's predecessors.

'Halo 4 Spoilers' nope(I know its your opinion) that's a fairy tail story right there....343i wants you to feel that she's alive but reality is she's gone for good. The amount of closure we got from her story is enough to tell you that she isn't coming back.
Bringing her back would be a slap to the ending of Halo 4...(Game of thrones season 1 spoilers) Its like Ned Starks death...he ain't coming back but you really want him to...its just that feeling you get after a character dies, it shows how involved people were with those characters.

How would it be a slap to the face, if she's a alive then it adds a plot point to the overall story.

Cortana has been a fan favourite, what is a slap to the face is to take over the franchise and kill someone off as important as her. As I've said she's the human part of the Master Chief ironically for being an AI, so she's kind of needed.

"amount of closure we got from her story"

Story?...she never had a story, she was a part of the overall story but it wasn't her story or a personal one.

The game is full of soldier grunts and other military things, she was a character which stood out from the franchise

Lots of mediums had there Main characters killed off(Fan favourite or not), So its nothing new.
There might be a chance Cortana is alive and the story would go in the direction of Dantes Inferno's inspiration where he has to go through the seven circles of hell...but 343i will make it in a different way. Basically using those similar themes.
The issue with that would be Master chief's and Cortanas story again...but Halo is more than just them though...new character and forerunner places are needed.

'"amount of closure we got from her story"

I didn't mean it in a way that meant it was her story. What im saying is her part in the story is over. Master Chief is on his own now.

'The game is full of soldier grunts and other military things, she was a character which stood out from the franchise'

Master Chief needs to explore new places so new characters can be introduced. This story we are gonna get is far from a Human story. Human story was Halo ce -Halo 3. This will be a conflict with the Didact(he ain't dead BTW) and explores the forerunner parts and perhaps beyond that.

I predict
The main character will be called "master chief"

Cortana will become even sexier, and they'll explain why Master Chief wore a cloak when he has armor. Hint: it protects his beautiful skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

Also..... SWIMMING LESSONS!!!

I recall 343i talking about how John and Cortana's relationship develops over the "Reclaimer trilogy" (though it's a saga now), so I'm positive Cortana will return in Halo 5.

System Seller...
giovonni  +   246d ago
It will no doubt be a system seller, but what made Halo unique were the dynamic A.I and characteristics of NPC. For example, play Halo Combat Evolved and get to the Captain's Bridge and Kill LT. Keyes and see what happens, Continue to shoot NPC Marines and see how they treat you. Even The Grunts throwing their hands up in the air screaming "run for your lives" made Halo stand out from the rest outside of the oblivious other stand outs like controls and two play co-op . At it's time no company matched the same experience this deep on a console.

Halo four was an excellent title, I liked it, but wasn't in love with it. It had all the things that made Halo shine, but lacked innovation, I think 343i should exploit all strengths with Halo 5 with the use of kinect, using the heart monitor to gage how A.I. applies pressure, to voice commanding troops to saying Cortana help me, or show me this triggers her to engage with you.
