Why do people think that Chief is going to be killed off in Halo 5? Or in any Halo game?
I keep seeing posts about this. It is a silly idea. He is not going to die.
If people think 343 will kill off Chief because they killed off Cortana, that is the wrong idea. Cortana was not the main character to begin with (although yes, she was the deurotagonist, but her death had story reasons behind it and good reasons). She was meant to die as her lifespan was nearing its end as told in Halo 3, and her death resulted in further developing the character of Master Chief.
Back in the time of Halo 3’s release, even then not many people thought that Chief would die. Pre-Halo 3 launch would be the only reasonable time to speculate Chief dying, as Halo 3 (at the time) was highly thought to be the last Halo game. And the last game, movie, episode would be the only reasonable time for a main character to be killed off.
343 is NOT going to kill off Master Chief, he is the main character. What series kills off it’s Main Character?! Halo having Master Chief get killed off is like having Mario kill off Mario. Or having Metroid kill off Samus. Master Chief is the icon of Halo, his helmet is basically Halo’s logo.
The only time series kill off main characters is in the VERY final installment of the series, or when a series ends its generation and starts a new generation (new cast, new characters, new era). I suppose Halo 1-3 was one generation, and Halo 4-6 is another, but it is pretty much the same universe and time period. Even in those situations, killing off the main character is still a ‘maybe’ and not for certain. Its unlikely.
Master Chief is NOT going to die, I don’t understand why threads about this keep being made. The likely hood of that happening is the same likelyhood of Mario having Mario die. Or Metroid having Samus die. Kratos did die in God of War 3, but as a result, every God of War game made afterwards was forced to take place BEFORE God of War 3 on its timeline. And even those games had Kratos continue as the main character.
Master Chief will not be killed off ANY time soon. Even him being killed off in Halo 6 (if that happens to be the very last Halo game, wich I doubt) is unlikely.
Halo 5 is definitely not the last Halo game, so there is no reason to think he will be killed off. So calm down, Its alright, take a deep breath. He isn’t going to die. No need to make anymore threads about it. I am 100% sure
