All you Halo-fans will be pleased to know that Microsoft and 343 Industries have recently released a brand spanking new teaser trailer for Halo 5: Guardians. And I stress my use of the word "tease", because, despite its short length, it offers a tasty morsel of plot for the next chapter of the ubiquitous franchise.

In the trailer, a bullet is shot out of what is seemingly a sniper rifle, impacting on Master Chief's helmet and shattering it into hundreds of shards. That is... pretty much it. But, tantalizingly, the word "traitor" is embellished on the bullet, which could possibly allude to the Chief's role in Guardians.

Check the trailer out and see what you think:

In Guardians, peace is suddenly threatened when the colony worlds are attacked out of the blue. When Master Chief goes missing, Spartan Locke, from Halo: Nightfall, is tasked with tracking the legendary hero and deciphering a mystery that threatens the safety of the galaxy.

The trailer closes with the hashtag and diverts you to the marketing campaign's tumblr, which includes a Serial-esque podcast by Benjamin Giraud, a journalist who also wants to decipher a mystery - who is the Master Chief?

I can't wait for the next installment of this iconic franchise! If the game manages to stay bug free, I believe we may have a Halo narrative as good as the vastly underrated ODST. You know, IMHO...

What do you guys think?
