Hi everyone, Spartan here with site poll #73.
Last week I asked whether you wanted to see fluid movement reappear in Halo 6, and overall it appears that the community does want it to remain, and possible with more fluidity. Looking forward to seeing how 343 move forward with this in the next Halo FPS game. Click here to view the last poll, #72.
The fate of Cortana?
Cortana's stirring up trouble, and she's now the UNSC's, or the galaxy's, primary threat. Is it too late to bring her home? Some theorise that her "turn to the dark side" is caused by the flood's infamous logic plague, but regardless of why she's gone rogue, she's a threat. Her termination has been on the table since 2557, and it's not more of a certainty with the way things are going. How do you think she'll be sent out though, with a bang?
She may pull off a final sacrifice, similar to Halo 4's ending, or the UNSC will finish her off with their allies. No matter how, I see an end in sight for her. Even if she has been cured of rampancy by the Domain, and somehow gets free of the logic plague, no one would want her to remain active. It's far too large of a risk that the universe is better off without. Even if she's scientifically proven to be sane and safe for operation, paranoia and safety precations/regulars are still in place. She's too advanced and manipulative (thanks to Halsey's persona being ingrained in her) to keep alive, like Halsey herself in previous cases. I believe the hunt for Cortana will be like the hunt for Halsey, but this time she'll be put down for sure. That is, if the UNSC+allies get their hands on her. I don't think that'll be so straight-forward, but I do believe that if Cortana is infected by the logic plague and gets free of it, she will surrender herself to humanity for her destruction.
But how's she going down? What do you think is her most likely fate, and why?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts,
