Most likely based on instillation 07. Chief’s armor is most likely mark VII because it features halsey’s design but also does not look like any past mjonir armor mass produced by the unsc or halsey.
You think it takes place on installation 07? Why and I’m not an expert on armor so I can’t say
I say it takes place on the installation 00 aka The ark This is my theory for halo infinite
remember at the end of halo 2 when chief left Cortana behind and she ended up staying with the gravemind.
Then fast forward to halo 3 chief finds Cortana she says something about being messed up something wasn’t right with her ( this will make sense in a bit)
Now fast forward to halo 4 it’s been over 8 years since Cortana was made and Ai get rampanzi after 7 which means they think themselves to death.( im unsure of this but I strongly believe it)
now remember halo 2 could it have been possible that the flood could have mutated her in any shape it doesn’t make sense. Even Cortana thought it was strange she didn’t pass away from rampanzi
fast forward to halo 5 Cortana is suddenly evil (ironic ) and she plans on destroying all bio mass in the universe or galaxy (not sure which haven’t played campaign in some time)
fast forward to the end of halo 5 Cortana is at a mysterious ring remember what I said about destroying all Sentient life it just so happens that in halo 3 it was revealed that you could use the ark to remotely detonate all the rings Simultaneously. Killing all of sentient life
What does a halo ring do?
A halo ring it destroys all bio mass with in a certain distance in order to kill of the flood. The ring it self doesn’t kill the flood it kills its food
Fast forward to halo wars 2 yes halo wars 2 it will make sense in a bit. IT takes place on the Ark but at the end of halo wars 2 it professor anders teleported a part of the ring away and is met with a guardian most likely the same guardian from the end of halo 5 halo wars 2 takes place right after halo 5.
fast forward two dlc expansions later halo wars 2 awakening the nightmare. This dlc showed us that the flood was still on the ark it didn’t die after what 4 years after the ark activated. And there was an outbreak of flood was it contained most likely not
fast forward to E3 where the halo demo is being shown and if you look around what 1:07 you will see like some strange thing in the water I thought it was like some strange creature even after I realized it was halo but if you look closely at it could you say it is a gravemind something similar to the thing Cortana was left behind with in halo 2. Because remember in halo 2 that thing graves master chief from inside the water
I believe that in halo infinite master chief will have to fight atriox (banished), Cortana and the flood
There are are other things I’d like to say but would rather take to long ( I left out some small details but the bigger important ones I listed) but let me know what you guys think 🤔 because I really want to fight atriox and other banished like deci in warzone.
also so as far as gameplay goes I think that it will keep halo 5 gameplay (343 already said they wasn’t going back to old halo) but the art style I have to admit is really good
