Halo 5: Guardians (Post any theories here)

Recommended Posts

Okay completely going out on a limb here. If you follow the timeline of the Halo games, the last thing we ABSOLUTELY know about is Spartan Ops. At the end of season 1 of SO you get Dr. Halsey saying she wants revenge. Now it has been confirmed that there will not be a season 2 of SO until the Halo game of Xbox One, which we now found out, is called Halo 5: Guardians. Now what really interested me at first is that they would wait years to put out another season of the mini series. UNLESS, they realized that they could use the mini series ending of season 1 to their advantage for a bigger game....Guardians....The end of SO again has Halsey mad at the UNSC and wanting revenge. So...WHAT IF...the new character Spartan is created by Halsey to go after the UNSC. it's armor is definitely more high tech than Chief's older armor which makes sense considering it is new age Spartan armor. Now the cover art shows sort of a reflection of Chief  underneath this new awesome looking blue glow eyed Spartan. It's a "reflection" because Halsey built Chief back in the day and he was the only Spartan that made it thus far. So she built this new Spartan the same way she built Chief. Thus, the reflection of Chief. The only thing that gets me is the ONI symbol on the new suit. Maybe it was stolen by Jul 'Mdama's men for Halsey to use. Whatever the case may be, I think we're going to eventually see a fight to the death between two Spartans, Master Chief, and this new age Spartan. Old vs New. I'd be really upset to see Chief go, and I think the rest of Halo nation would too. So I'll say Chief comes out on top but who knows....

You probably haven't read Halo: Escalation if you think Spartan Ops is the most recent event in the Halo canon.

Second of all, the Spartan is confirmed to be an ONI agent, Agent Locke, and to be working with the Arbiter in order to find the Master Chief.

I theorize that the reunion between Arbiter and Chief is going to make a lump go into my throat.

 

and then I'll probably cri ery'time.

What i seen in the trailer way earlier is the giant forerunner construct, or more simply a bird looking thing. Maybe near the end you will have to fight to to get to your goal. The game is called Guardians. So maybe, but that just a theory.

So this is a theory I came up with the other day. Almost blew Ardy away.

 

 

From the Forerunner Saga we know a bit more about Guilty Spark, how he was once human (sorry spoilers-if you haven't read the books GO DO IT) and had a bit of interest in a girl. She was, however, presumably composed. We also know that the Forerunners were able to put....ehhhhh....other people inside a persons head. For example, Forthencho inside Chakas' head. At the end of Primordium or Silentium (I forget which right now), Guilty Spark said he knew where to find his girlfriend, whose name escapes me. What if (here's where the mindblowing part comes in) his girlfriend was imprinted in Halsey's bloodline, and by extension, Cortana?

Did I kill it or are there just no more theories? Also, I saw a theory somewhere on the interwebs that the Interrogator in Halo 4 may have been Locke.

The hype for H5 has died down now after E3 has come and gone....

 

 

And with Halo the mc collection coming out most people are excited about that... than Halo 5 that is more than a year away. :)

No..... you misunderstand my point. :)

 

 

Halo the master chief collection has more hype than Halo 5 because it is coming out very soon, Most of the Halo community are talking about it.

 

Halo 5 is not coming out for my than a year and we know little about it in contract to the MC collection, that has lots of info on it.

 

 

Plus people have got to play it.

My theory is Cortana comes back! I mean what would Cheif do without her? She manages his HUD and everything with his suit. If she doesn't come back then I'm going to be sad.

Chief handled his suit well in Halo 3 without Cortana, he is certainly not defenceless without her. :)

And of course before Halo Ce as well.

Spartans weren't trained to have AI with them at all times. He is a perfectly capable soldier without her.

At the end of Primordium he said he knew where the Librarian was. The thing is though the Librarian is dead, so was he just delusional or was he talking about someone else like the Life Giver character introduced in Silentium.

Cry... Every...time...

 

It might not be, and that threat makes me sad honestly. I really hope it is joyous and Arbiter does not turn into some villain. He's always been my favorite Halo Character.

Well we know now at this current posting time that the chief might have been abducted or lost with blue team from events in escalation 8 and that is where we can close why the chief is not with the unsc. The problem lies in the timing of the story. Not 24 hours after halo 4's events he goes missing AGAIN unless escalation 9 brings him back.

 

The Didact is also back again within 24 hours, That's ****** up man. Not good storyline continuance.

What if this new guy in halo 5 (agent clark) is searching for master chief? In sum halo 5 trailers master chief is somewhere in a desert searching for cortana most likley. In the other trailers arbitar is telling this agent clark that he trust him in finding chief that the universe depends on him and that the seeds of the future are in chiefs past what if ther trying to rebuild spartens for a new war? What if arbiters home planet was attacked and they need more spartens to help? And that is what halo 5 in my opinion should be based on. Agent clark (new guy) looking for chief to gather data only he knows and for his help to help save arbitars home planetc:

First of all it is agent Locke

Second of all, we need to first go to the origin of the e3 2013 trailer. How did Chief get here? We all know at the end of halo 4, Chief returned to earth, had his armor stripped and Cortana left Chief for good. What if he snuck out of the infinity to look for any ways to find Cortana again, find a source which brings him closer to regain Cortana or went to find Halsey to rebuild Cortana. He wears a robe(probably so he doesn't get identified by any Storm Covenant, UNSC looking for him or Prometheans). He also has a visible crack on his visor which may or may not be explained in the halo escalation series(you should check that out). The Promethean bird suddenly stands in Chief's way. As the hood of his robe gets blown of by the Promethean's activation protocol, Chief clutches onto Cortana's chip(which has been made into a bracelet). This probably means he has found the source or a clue of Cortana's return. This is where Agent Locke comes in. If you Look at the first announced cover art for Gaurdians there is a few things that we should know about Locke. First of all he has an O.N.I symbol on his armor. This tells you he is sent to search for Chief or kill him. Also Locke is the main character of Halo Nightfall, which will give you more clues about the story of Guardians. Finally he is sent by the Arbiter, who once formed an alliance with Chief. In the Halo MMC trailer he told Locke that the universe depends on him and to know him he needs to look back at his previous accomplishments. So there you have it. Feedback to your reply and more possible theories.

What if that promethean bird thing has someone on board that can help? Maybe that bird is what cheif is specifically looking for. Maybe the librarian left somthing there or maybe its just an enemy standing in chiefs way? I just think the best theory is that arbiter and oni both sent locke to search for chief to asl for help for who knows what situation. Arbiter dosnt ask alot if hes asking for chief then somthing must be happening

You could be on to something. What if the librarian left Chief a key component that could either help reincarnate Cortana or give Chief a tactical advantage on anything he may need for a special occasion in his mysterious journey.

I remember from the trailer his armor was broken, so maybe he will find someone to help him out in the story. Oh, and the Promethean returning somehow.

I think the War Sphinx (not bird,other people)-_- is like some sort of promethean boss that you have to defeat in the last campaign mission to "win". About the Arbiter, I think maybe O.N.I. sent Agent Locke to the Arbiter so he can get info to find Chief to help on a big war because in the trailer the Arbiter says, "I tell you this, not because I trust you, but because all our lives are at stake." Something like that.

Yeup and in the trailer agent locke isnt on earth. And u can see arbitar in his visor. Im guessing ther both on arbitars planet. And in one of the halo comics the very last one chief stabs the didact in the eye and the didiact raises chief by his helmet and ends ther. And in the halo 5 trailer chief has a crackd visor? That could be why hi armor is messd up. Maybe he got ina fight with the didiact before he went rogue.

I'm sure he's says ' The key to our future lies in his past.'  There's something about halo 2. The Librarian upscaled his body or evolved him but maybe she had implanted a code in our genome that once coaxed out can make us immune to the flood, there wasn't enough time or the adequate population numbers to make it effective. The flood had taken too much of the galaxy so she decided to let it ride until someone would come a long. I think he's being drawn on by the gene song. he needs to be reworked to be able to face the Didact and whatever comes after him. Installation 05? is there anything on it that could be a link?

 

 

She did say to him in H4 ' Even your ancilla Cortana '

I'm sure I'm not the only one that notices that the silver spartan's armor configuration/design shares much resemblance with the spartan IV configuration/design. I think it's fairly safe to speculate that the spartan is a spartan IV. That, along with Noble six's death scene, can most likely rule out the possibility that Noble six is the hidden silver spartan.


Additionally, I believe John is in fact looking for Mendicant Bias. Clearly, the design of human AI's is very similar to the design of forerunner ancillas. (I, for one, believe this is no coincidence, especially considering the librarian's impact on humanity). With that in mind, I think John may also know that. In his knowledge, he may believe that he can transfer Mendicant Bias onto Cortana's chip. Keeping it to himself, perhaps, so no one else may have access to it.

The Spartan is Jameson Locke. He Is a Spartan IV, and will be the main character in Halo Nightfall. He will also be playable in Halo 5 Guardians.

I had a theory on how the Flood might return in Halo 5 in the past involving Installation 07, the UNSC Infinity, and the Janus Key, but it was debunked when a forum ARG on Waypoint named "Catalog" stated that Installation 07 had been discovered and presumably glassed by Sangheili in 2557/2558. However, even if untrue, I'm still going to share it.

 

 

In essence, this is a worst-case scenario. Primordium stated (or at least hinted) that Installation 07 had a multitude of Protograveminds enclosed within Flood Research Facilities. With a hundred thousand years of a slowly deteriorating monitor being the only thing preventing them from escaping containment, by 2558, it's very likely that those containment protocols had long been violated and that the Flood have completely overran the ring with a number of Protograveminds merging into a Gravemind. Installation 05 on steroids.

 

In either Halo 4 or The Thursday War (I can't remember which one), we learned that one of the UNSC Infinity's missions is to locate the remaining Halo rings an establih permenant facilities near them to study them for decommission. Being the only remaining Halo from the original twelve, Installation 07 is easily among the most important to be located.

 

Aside from Master Chief wandering around what's probably the Lesser Ark to find Mendicant Bias, Halo 5's story will likely follow the Janus Key conflict. I imagine that Locke's career as an asset acquisition specialist will indicate that finding MC isn't his only task, but also getting the other half of the Janus Key from Jul and Halsey.

 

If Locke succeeds in this task, and both halves of the Janus Key are put into the hands of the UNSC/ONI, not only will the Forerunner technology located by it likely be used to oppress any non-humans and cause the galaxy to follow the same path as the Forerunners, but Installation 07 will probably be the first stop for Infinity now that the location of all of the rings are found.

 

And when Infinity proceeds to set up a permenant facility on/near Installation 07, the Flood that have overran the ring in an outbreak worse than Delta Halo, not only will the UNSC's greatest starship ever created be the home of a freshly fused Gravemind, but the Flood would now have a perfect and almost unstoppable way of spreading from world to world.

The theory may be untrue now that we know that 07 is no longer a threat, but it's still fun to imagine.
