Well, I’ve just been doing some brainstorming about Halo 4. For some reason everyone seems to want the Covenant to be in Halo 4. Personally, I don’t, but I’ll still post this idea anyway.
In Reach, remember the end of the mission Long Night of Solace? How the slipspace drive is “detonated” and wiped out basically half of the Covenant Super Carrier? Well, the thing is, the slipspace drive didn’t kill, or possibly didn’t kill the crew of the ship and Jorge. You see, all it did was transport them to another area in the galaxy or universe. That’s were my idea comes in.
What if the crew was transported into the Shield World that Master Chief is heading into? I’m just forming an idea, and for all I know I could be extremely off. The crew could have simply been transported into some random area in space and suffocated.
This is the only way I could see the Covenant (besides the Arbiter and Friendly Elites) and Covenant weaponry being incorporated into Halo 4. Maybe we’ll even get support from Jorge…
