Co-op campaign news?

Has there been recent info about co-op campaign?
Will the other players be story characters like halo 3, or non existent story characters like halo CE, 2 and reach?

No other characters have been confirmed as of yet. But co-op campaign, local and Xbox Live, has been confirmed in both the campaign and Spartan Ops.

Technically, in Halo CE the second player was playing as Linda who is an actual part of the Halo canon. She’s there in both the “Fall of Reach” and “First Strike” novels so Co-op campaign was kind of like an alternate reality where Linda decided to follow Chief along while in Single Player she remained in cryo aboard the PoA. You’ll have to read “First Strike” to find out what happened to her though.

As far as I know Linda never got out of her cryo tube until first strike due to her injuries.

That’s incorrect. At the time Linda was in her cryo tube and clinically dead. Only when Dr. Halsey got to her in First Strike was she revived.
