Look. It's not too late to have the Flood return. The Flood will definitely return in Halo Infinite.jk kills 33 wrote:But it's too late.

While I do enjoy the flood for their mystery and terror, I would concede that reintroducing them in a meaningful way post H3 would only cheapen the finale. Similar to how Cortana's resurrection in H5 cheapens H4's ending. The flood could very well return, but probably not in the galaxy devouring way that they appeared in the original trilogy.BANGHART wrote:Nice excuses.TheCrimsonAVIAN wrote:Halo 4 took place on a shield world, they wouldn’t have flood there for fairly obvious reasons.

without the flood you dont have Halo.
them being omitted from 4/5 was pure incompetence and shows you they really had no idea what they were doing as far as the storyline goes.
4/5 might aswell have taken place in disneyworld for all I care.
The flood are 100% integral to Halos storyline. The fact they were omitted is more likely due to them aiming for a T esrb rating more than anything. That and like I said before a bunch of people working on the game that "dont even like Halo" and pure incompetence. defend that if you want all day Idc, any old school Halo fan knows this was a massive mistake.
