Rumor – Leaked Halo 5 Live Action Photo

Looks like a leaked live action photo has surfaced on reddit /r/Halo. Speculations have been made that this photo is either for a live action commercial for Halo 5: Guardians or for Stephen Speilberg’s Halo Television series.

The source of the image won’t be mentioned as it was promptly removed from the social media platform.

The photo depicts Master Chief laying at a base of a burned and scarred memorial, while Agent Locke approaches without his helmet. You can also see a camera crew personnel in the background on the right. The memorial reads “Duty and Honor Above All”, there are speculations this could be the same memorial seen at the end of Halo 3, but the Voi Memorial is made out of UNSC Pelican wing where as this new image clearly depicts a stone memorial. The pelican wing memorial could have easily been replaced by a more permanent memorial item since the events of Halo 3.

Another theory is that this image could be for a commercial that may function like the Halo 4 Scanned commercial, which was live action, gave us hints of Halo 4’s story direction, but not actually be canon in game.

Update: Microsoft has issued the following statement since the photo surfaced

“Xbox and Halo have a tradition of creating rich, narrative events to entertain and delight fans, including award-winning campaigns such as Starry Night, Believe, Remember Reach and more. We have no details to share at this time but look forward to exciting and surprising fans later this year as work continues on Halo 5: Guardians.”

“Halo: New Beginnings” Leaked Images Are Fake!

Four leaked images surfaced for a game claimed to be called Halo: New Beginnings. However, after close examination the images are fake. But the story could be true, as it involves a popular Mendicant Bias theory and follows Master Chief after the events of Halo 4 as he searches for Halsey to bring back Cortana.

“Halo: New Beginnings is an upcoming title for Microsofts Xbox One… follows the events after Halo 4. Master Chief has left [the UNSC] Infinity to search for Halsey to bring back Cortana. On the way, he meets Mendicant Bias and he ends up being the new AI Companion”

Now we cannot outright say that the attached story is false, many Mendicant Bias theories are floating around right now. For those who don’t know Mendicant Bias was the most advanced Forerunner AI at the time who eventually went rampant but rumors from a Halo 3 terminal mention that Mendicant Bias may be able to overcome rampancy; which could lead to a possible solution that Master Chief may be seeking to restore Cortana.

The creator of the images even contacted me via Twitter asking for credit in fooling the community.

Here’s a photoshop image I created in 10 minutes showing how easy it is to fool the community Halo-Fake-Hud-ExampleThere you have it, you can’t always believe what you read on the internet. However, I’m curious to hear your thoughts on a potential storyline involving Mendicant bias. Leave a comment and let me know.

– Chief… I hope I don’t have to do this every time a “leaked” photo is released.
