No Elites in Halo 4....

I hope this isn’t a spoiler, but is anyone else disappointed you won’t be able to play as Elites in Halo 4? :confused:
I don’t know if it’s just on multiplayer or if you can play as them in custom games but… If not at all, it’s gonna make it 10x harder for me and my friends to make our Machinima especially with the loss of Firefight too.
