So Chief's armor was basically just confirmed to be new armor.

In the vidoc the Spartan IVs have the same kind of armor as Chief, just different permutations. I’ll take that as confirmation that Chief’s armor is NOT Mark VI and probably Mark VII unless Mark VII was replaced between 2553 and 2557.

The armour worm by the Spartan-IVs is VASTLY different from the one used by John. And when you see the part where Halo 3’s and Halo 4’s versions of John are compared, you’ll see that the armour for Halo 4 is very similar to the one we had before.

My bet is that we’re still going to have Mark VI armour in the campaign.

Spartan IVs=/=John 117

Where are you getting 2257 from?

Actually Halo 4’s 5 years after Halo 3.

I guess he took it hinted at The Glasslands (or other canon writings)

For Yoink’s sake! Go read Halopedia if you don’t have time for the books.
