Steve Downes tweet...

So Steve Downes posted this to his twitter earlier
“It has been nothing short of a galactic journey. Thanks for everything @343 @Xbox. #TeamChief #Halo5

What do you all make of this? Kind of interesting he makes this tweet the day following a trailer that claims that the Master Chief, once again, is dead. Is this just a marketing ploy to get people to believe the trailer or is Downes possibly leaving the Halo franchise? Or is he just saying thanks? lol

I think it’s a thank you for H5… but we’ll see :3

I’m thinking maybe Halo 5 is a finished project or he has at least finished all his work and is just thanking and congratulating 343i for a job well done.

Mind games.

Dam it Steve, dont do this to me.

They might’ve gotten him to do it just to mess with us after the Chief has fallen trailer. Would make sense.

This is my line of thought. Too much coincidence he tweeted that the day after.

This Tweet seems more like Steve is mearly thanking 343 for their work on Halo 5. If he was leaving the franchise, Then wouldn’t he be thanking more than just 343, like, I dunno… The fans?

Come on guys, If Chief was really going to die in Halo 5, Why would they spoil it via a Trailer?

And didn’t they already come out and say that Chief wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon? And that 343 have no plans to retire him?

I’m betting that Chief will be fine in Halo 5… Physically of course…

ONI hijacked his twitter account…
Lol I have a feeling that 343i is messing with us, too much coincidence that he posted that the day after master chief was announced dead in a trailer.

Oh Damn this is fun Bioware did the same stuff with Mass effect 3 too lol.

The tweet is still up, do you guys honestly Microsoft or 343 would let that tweet stay online if it was a spoiler alert?

Now imagine 343 doing the same to Halo 5…

Yeah…if they do hopefully heads will roll but you know right now 343 likely are patting each other on the back saying “we did it guys…this is ART” and people will like it because, hey, the only reason you’d not like it if you could not understand it"

I agree it will be bad on a massive scale. I just gotten in to Halo this will be my first Halo I will have gotten new day one form my understanding the halo MCC was nightmare with the MP I don’t play the MP much either on that game lets hope this is not the case with this game.

But…THE ART…it is meant to be ANGST…it’s a bold new direction and #cooldarkandedgy…and mature and blah blah blah balabbity blah blah.

I get so tired of this BS…

Two scenarios:

  1. He’s just finished his play through of the campaign

  2. Chief does die, pointers:
    a) 343 clarified it’s the reclaimer saga, NOT trilogy. Most interpret this to mean there will be more than three games but there could be less
    b) TV spot
    c) All things come to an end

I’m guessing option 1)

i think it is not best thing to bring up mass effect 3 things on a halo forums and 343 know that if thay f up halo 5 ending then all of the halo fans will get piss off

It’s not halo without cheif

Literally everything else Halo-related that doesn’t have Chief in it says otherwise.
