Most vehemently no, and the voice actor could be replaced.
The only person aside from chief that I feel an emotional attachment to is Buck. I think chief needs to die or retire (or go missing in action :P) and I don’t think it needs to be Blue Team that replaces him. I think it should be the person we feel emotional attachment to (in my case, buck).
Chief needs to die at some point, and Infinite is the perfect game to do it in. If he never dies, he essentially becomes invincible to us, and the thrill/suspense of the game is gone. As for a replacement, I think Jerome and Isabel would be perfect, so long as they were gradually integrated into the main series over the events of Infinite.But if not Jerome, Buck would be an awesome replacement
New voice actor.MinusSquire2145 wrote:New Question: Would you rather see the Master Chief die or receive a new voice actor? Steve Downes is sixty-seven years old. He has already retired from his other duties. I doubt he'll want to be voice-acting forever, and I'm not sure how realistic it will be when Downes is seventy while the Chief is still running around completing insane mission after mission. You can hear it in his voice already; he's getting old.UnerringPig04 wrote:Because Master Chief is pretty much the player and if he dies then our link to the Halo Universe is cut.

As said above blue team didn't appeal to me either and I would rather see them die then Chief.
In my opinion Missing in action is the best way to go, because retiring wouldn't really be good for someone who was trained from a child to kill, having to stop would most likely cause some mental issues. dying could work as well and have either Buck or Jerome take his spot.ImHungry5568731 wrote:The only person aside from chief that I feel an emotional attachment to is Buck.

I would not know how to tell you, I do not think so that I self-suggest myself, but if the boss dies, who will be the protagonist of the saga. It would be better if he died but of natural causes. Can you imagine John-117 retired?
not many people played halo wars 1&2 so Jerome is out,beside team Osiris also didn't have much development time eitherEpicAngel00 wrote:If Halo Wars characters would ever come into the mainline games, then Jerome would be a perfect choice for Chief's successor IMO.
Jerome & Isabel = New Chief & Cortana
If not then, idk. Blue Team wasn't that much appealing to me in H5G. They would need more character development before they ever take Chief's place.
