We will find the Master Chief accompanied by his faithful AI and friend, Cortana, facing a whole bunch of alien threats.

Since under its nag shooter air, Halo has a real mythology built, among other things, around the Master Chief. A true legendary icon both in the licensing universe and for players, as evidenced by the recent Halo Infinite and its main campaign loaded with revelations. So let’s wait and see what happens before we sound the alarm.
