Bro, give it a rest and be patient. You don't know what 298 studios' going to do.
I don't see why I should do that, particularly when the hard evidence is stacking up that they're going to be treating Blue Team as a total non-factor to the Chief's story in spite of the exact opposite being canonically true
. Seriously, if this article is what 343i thinks is essential to know about John-117, I am starting to have serious doubts about the next games being the "character study" they've promised. It's completely ludicrious to mention Col. Watts' capture (a mission that would've failed
if not for John's teammates being with him), and contact with the Covenant over Chi Ceti (where John lost one of his his best friends
) without even bringing up his teammates. There's really no excuse for that - not when this "encyclopedia" entry is meant to inform people about the Chief's life. So really either this article was written by someone with extremely limited knowledge of Halo canon and it's just a huge mistake, or the folks at 343i are indeed very deliberately cutting out Blue Team from the story. Neither option is very good indication of care for the franchise if you ask me.
