My theory is what if Cortana isn't even in rampancy? Like the poster above me I heard that audio log and I am 99% positive she is speaking of Cortana as "her" and saying she can go beyond rampancy.
I think because Cortana isn't just a normal AI and she is more human than any other one ever was I believe maybe her rampancy is human emotion? If you go back and listen to the stuff she says when she is going "rampant" the majority of it has to do with being alone or being betrayed.
I really do hope that Cortana is atleast mentioned in Spartan OPS and they give us hints of her still being alive. Besides the death of Cortana the end of Halo 4 is fairly brief and short and of little value. We hear Didact speak but at this point nobody really cares, we all want to hear more about Cortana or a small snippet of our favorite sidekick somewhere alive.
I don't know what will happen with The Composer as it looked destroyed, but I do hope Cortana is back.
If Cortana does not make an appearance or is not mentioned in Halo 5 I will not buy the games simply because the franchise is ruined for me. Sgt Johnson died a fitting death and we got alot of closure out of it. Cortana's "welcome home John" is the worst goodbye line ever. But that is why I believe she is alive.
If she had said "Thank you John for ~" or "I love you John ~" it would have brought closure and we all would be in 100% mourning mode. It's been almost a week and I still consider this the saddest ending (Assassins creed revelations made me shed man tears) to a video game I have ever seen, and this also ranks among the saddest movie endings I've ever seen. If 343 is smart they will give the people what they deserve, a happy ending for Chief. And as long as there is some mention of Cortana between now and Halo 5 I will completely revoke what I've said about the campaign and call it brilliant instead.
Even if they tried to bring closure to Cortana's "death" I still wouldn't be in the mourning mode. Her and Chief are the most important characters in the game. You can't have chief without cortana and you can't have cortana without chief in my eyes.
Johnsons death had closure because he wasn't as big a character as chief or cortana.
I agree with you, this is probably the most sad game I have every played. I almost shed a man tear as well. It's good to finally see the human side of chief.
I'm almost certain Cortana will return to Chief in some way. :)
