The developer boss Bonnie Ross revealed the new Spartan, Agent Locke, to Eurogamer and added that the series will tell his origin story.
Ross stated that Master Chief is still the game’s main character,
“He is human, he’s always been human, but at the end of Halo 4 he really is reflecting on who he is and why he exists.
“That was very deliberate because the story we want to tell on Xbox One really is an important part and the main part of his hero’s journey. It’s more about what he’s searching for versus what the UNSC is asking him to do.”
Ross then added that Halo 5: Guardians is,
“a continuation of Master Chief’s story and is a lot about his future, but as you’ll see through all of the linear pieces we’ve woven through, his past is key to his future.”
Halo 5: Guardians is due to release in 2015 for Xbox One. Are you super excited about this game?
