Will the Crossover happen?

This is not the first time Disney has had a massive crossover with Xbox. The Popular pirate game Sea of Thieves witnessed a crossover with the fan-loved franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean. The crossover involved references, content, and a new storyline. Obviously, the crossover was easy considering the overlapping themes between the two pieces of media.

Considering that Buzz Lightyear and Halo have overlapping themes as well, an elite space commando fighting against tyranny and destruction in the galaxy, a crossover between these two does not seem completely unfeasible.

Adding to that, the timing of the leak is quite fitting as well. The Buzz Lightyear movie is set to release in June this year. Perhaps this crossover event will act as a promotional campaign for the movie as well.
