Halo 5 Speculations

Recommended Posts

So I posted this on a Facebook page a while ago, thought I'd get the communities opinions. This is what I could figure out from Halo 4, my speculations for where Halo 5 could go!

 

343 have stated Halo 5 will be a darker game. We will be looking at the Chief dealing with the loss of Cortana and finally realising his humanity, it's a huge point, "soldiers aren't machines Chief, they're just people" really hit him. Also there will be the issue of a newly enraged Covenant. Chief just killed (possibly) one of their gods. I imagine that would piss them off. Furthermore, is Didact dead? A lot of sources say yes but don't forget that line before the final fight about slipspace readings below the composer. He could've fallen into a slipspace rupture. OR there is the second option, Forerunner armour had personal slipspace jumpers (like the Promethean Knights used). He may have been badly wounded but he coulda jumped out of there. Will we see a return of a larger contingent of Forerunner from out of galaxy? Will they be hostile or friendly, sympathetic to the Didact or not? Could there be another Didact, much like when Bornstellar and the original Didact were "fused" in a sense. Plus there is that rousing speech that the Didact gives in the epilogue. Is that a speech from before the Halo activation? Sounds to me like he's talking to other Forerunner, on trial for the events of Halo 4. I feel a further return of Forerunner and the Didacts survival are the most likely options. Which bodes for the "darker" game. If he rouses the remaining Forerunner into a campaign of eradication against man kind, humanity will be almost powerless. Covenant tech is base doff back engineered Forerunner tech. If humanity was almost wiped out by them, what will the Forerunner cause? Could we lose Earth? Another factor is indeed the possible return of the Precursor. It's a possibility. Did Precursors flee the galaxy? Do some lay dormant, in cryptum like states, much like the Didact? We do not know. Perhaps we will learn more with the release of Silentium next year, but for now, this is my speculations.

 

I hope people agree or see where I'm coming from.

Since the Chief is back with humanity, they will most likely give him a new suit of armor. He might also be paired with another AI, maybe another Cortana, but he will not trust it or like it as much as he did the original Cortana. Halo 5 might also have the flood, and the Arbiter, and it would be cool if it showed some of the other Covenant factions.

I think that the question of the didacts death is a good one. when the didacts fell he was injured but not dead, so the question becomes did the fall kill him. i think not because he fell in to the same lava looking substance the he first came out of when cheif first met him. remember he came out of that floating ball of what looked like lave, probably the same substance. so if he could come out a ball made of that stuff, would landing in it kill him? i say probably not.

Get rid of the whole infity multiplayer idea it didn't really work just go back to the basics of halo 3 and reach that the the matchmaking far more enjoyable and change the layout of the lobbys to the way they used to be as well.

On the contrary, the Infinity theme DOES work, and it works WONDERFULLY. I actually wish that they'd go into more depth, like making your spartan move throughout the ship, and you see your armor in a kind of workshop as you piece together what you want to use. But the playlist selection is quite annoying. I hope they put the playlists in sections like they did in Halo 3 and Halo: Reach, since they've been adding more playlists.

Wrong section.

 

I wish to get rid of infinity theme, it means no playable elites.
