Halo 5: Guardians is one of the only Xbox One exclusive release dates that I'm excited about, aside from the forever elusive Gears of War 4. When will we hear more?! Not only am I hopeful for the adventure that 343 Industries are in the process of creating, I'm interested to see how they handle its launch after the catastrophe that is Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Has this game permanently damaged Halo 5?

We'll have to wait and see! But seeing as I wouldn't consider myself a player of multiplayer games, the Halo series has always been about its great story, endearing characters and breathtaking set pieces. Seriously, 343 Industry's remastering of Halo 2 made my Christmas! But what kind of plot will they show us for Master Chief and Cortana in Halo 5 on its release date? HALO 4 SPOILERS ABOUND BELOW THIS IMAGE!

Halo 5 - Will Master Chief Follow Cortana?

So 343 Industries boldly stepped up to the plate in 2012 and gave us Halo 4 after it left the loving arms of Bungie. In my opinion, they weren't content with keeping it safe but decided to boldly take the series into their own hands. How did they manage this? By killing off one of the series' most beloved characters; Cortana. On a side note, they've also ruined guns for me in games. Their weapons sound so superior to everything else and are such an insane delight to fire!

But I wonder whether 343 Industries are content with taking over the Halo series and continuing in this murderous fashion. Could they set their sights on Master Chief next? And has the Halo: Nightfall TV series been gearing us up for the presence of our new hero for Halo 6, Agent Carter?

A lot of the imagery surrounding Halo 5: Guardians since we saw it at E3 has shown Master Chief in worse for ware. He's clearly on a very emotional and soul-searching journey after the loss of Cortana, or could he actually be looking for a way to revive her?

In any case, these images indicate a man that has been dealt a severe emotional blow, one that could have impacted upon his state of mind to the extent where he questions his own existence. Could Master Chief have lost the will to continue on his missions? Will Halo 5: Guardians see him give it all up so that Agent Carter can take his place?

What do you believe Halo fans? Do you think we'll see John-117 on his final journey in 343 Industry's Halo 5: Guardians? Could Master Chief be getting his final release date on the Xbox One this holiday season? Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!
