Going into depth regarding the freshly leaked cut-scene, it features everyone’s favorite, Master Chief, and along with him is Echo-216 pilot, Fernando Esparza. Furthermore, the two receive a transmission that seems to be from an ally while a background “signal detected” followed by “UNSC tag detected. Designation: Friend”. Esparza then says, “Chief, you’re not going to believe this.”.

If one was to take a shot in the dark, it could either be UNSC Officer Thomas Lasky and his colleagues Locke and Palmer. Or it could even be the Spirit of Fire joining forces to or even the Arbiter. Although Arbiter belongs to The Swords of Sanghelios. It could even be a path to a co-op play in the future for the franchise and this cinematic would be the perfect way to introduce a potential allies or DLCs.

With this said, all theories and ideas must be taken with a pinch of salt. But isn’t that the best part about a Halo game? There are always endless possibilities.
