@  Maestro : (20 November 2019 - 09:28 PM) yeah, but I think that shouldn't matter when you play with your buddies in campaign or screw around in custom games

Im calling it now, its either Linda or Naomi.

Like Adam said, Frank O'conner has already stated that the spartan is not a girl:

 

Stinkles: "It's not Palmer and it is not a girl."

Frank O Connor already confirmed it is NOT a female.Also SII's were bulkier then that so I highly doubt it is even an SII

The image of the second spartan looks more female than male though. Just because he said it isnt, doeant mean he is telling the turth. I'll wait till we actually have more info on this. Although as an afterthought, it could be a full suit encompassing Cortana. Cortana is an AI, and therego forfeits an actual gender assignment or profile. Simply put, she is more of an "It".

Concept Art I saw on Halo Waypoint's blog. Sorry I couldn't get the image to show up in the thread. (sort of a noob at these kinds of forum things.)
 

Spoiler

Didn't occur to mee that it was two suns. When I looked at it, I thought it was a giant cavern. Hmm. A desert planet with two suns, these structures that, in a way, look a bit reminiscent of arabic/middle eastern castles, And that carved statue thing? Is it just me, or does the shadows on it's face, as well as those two points coming out forwards, look a bit like an Energy-Sword wielding Elite?

......

 

Sanghelios?

 

The image of the second spartan looks more female than male though. Just because he said it isnt, doeant mean he is telling the turth. I'll wait till we actually have more info on this. Although as an afterthought, it could be a full suit encompassing Cortana. Cortana is an AI, and therego forfeits an actual gender assignment or profile. Simply put, she is more of an "It".

He's also a 'New' character. 343 Industries' exec producer, Josh Holmes, confirmed that much, as well as 'he's not Palmer (Or Cortana)'

It looks very masculine, we're just used to beefy spartans in bulky armor, look at Jun, from his figure you couldn't tell if he was a male or female from that distance in that light unless you heard his voice or saw his face. Why would he lie stupidly over a character's gender? It's not like with TLOU when they lied to keep spoilers out, no this is an ESSENTIAL character, we need his gender to actually adapt to him.

Frank O Connor has never lied on NeoGAF when he says thing. Also multiple developers have already stated this is a new character so your assumptions are still wrong.

 

I have a feeling this new character could function similarly to Noble 6 which would justify the "it" statement because it is whatever gender the player picks.

Well I saw a topic on the forum and he said that in one of the Waypoint bulletins it gave a hint it a second playable Spartan being in Halo 5, their task being hunting down Master chief. < I don't know if that is 100 percent true but sounds cool. :)

If Chief is working for ONI that would mean working against the Arbiter; something I hope 343i would not force us to do, at least not as John.

That second Spartan, though, distinctly has an ONI emblem on his armour. My speculation is that he is not a supporting protagonist, but rather an antagonist, perhaps ONI's replacement for John or a part of Kilo-Five or similar unit. Plus the the concept art, looking a lot like Sanghelios, suggests that at least part of the game will take place there. We know that Sanghelios is rich in Forerunner relics which suggests the possibility that the Xbox One teaser trailer could also take place on Sanghelios. But why would John be masking his appearence on a friendly world? I still think that the Xbox One trailer may take place on the Ark, or other Forerunner installation, while the concept art actually is Sanghelios.  

 

I hope we don't end up fighting the Arbiter. That would lead to outrage among the Sangheili subculture of the community and be extremely frustrating even for more casual fans (including myself).

Doubt that they'd put the Antagonist on the front cover, as well as 'above' Chief, who's now upside down - which is probably yet more symbolism.

Ok ok for **** sake! Its not a female character. Does it really take 5 different lemming posts to call my guess wrong? Dont like my guess, then **** off alreqdy. As for Franklez, just because he is a dwv, doesnt mean he doesnt manipulate details or post half truths. Revealing everything about a character now does no good anyway. Unless more concrete information is released, anything is still possible.

All the devs have said is that the character is brand new and not female. Even if it was female all these character theories of "its cortana, Naomi, Linda, etc" would still be wrong because this is a new character.

 

So far the best speculation has been that this person is hunting down Master Chief. I personally like that idea, ONI are a bunch of jerks and if you remember the beginning of Halo 4 some of it adds up, but of course its just speculation.

I didn't realize other people said it to you, when I clicked on the thread it went straight to your post so I thought you were the last person to comment.

The game would be really interesting if we got to play as the

mysterious spartan! My anticipation for this game is bubbling

over, I can't wait! With the lowered Xbox One price, this game

and the console itself are just around the corner for me(:

 

Awesome discovery!

And a heaven in a wild flower,

And eternity in an hour.

Halo: Combat Evolved

 

Doesn't even really matter. When we say that we want to go play "Halo 5: Guardians" we are probably just going to say "Halo 5."

 

I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say "Halo 1." 

 

Wait a minute... what's wrong with being ODSTish?
