But not in the way you’re thinking.
I love that there will be another Halo trilogy, don’t get me wrong. But it makes me a little sad to think about it, because of one thing: The Chief.
I think he’ll be a viable playable character for another trio of games…But after that? I think he’ll have had enough. The Chief is old for a soldier. Even if he’s a Spartan…His luck can’t last forever, and neither will his body. Spartans were never made to last as long as he has, and I think (And hope), we’ll start to feel Chief age as the new trilogy goes along. Keep in mind he’s also had no medical attention at all since the events of Halo 3 at least…He has to start wearing down at some point. We got a hint of where Chief hit his limit in Halo: The Flood. He was basically running on empty at The Maw, and barely survived that.
My point in all this is that I don’t see Chief surviving another trilogy, especially considering his age and how much he’s already been through. I think at the end of Halo 6…Our beloved Chief will be dead. Honestly, I think that’s the only way we could see his story conclude: To die as a soldier…As a Spartan.
What do you guys think? Can the Chief survive another 3 games?
