Halo 5's Master Chief is no longer alone. Mr. John-117 is always accompanied by a human or computer-controlled character in the next installment of the franchise. The game, scheduled to be released on October 27th is described as a manhunt where Chief goes AWOL and Locke is hunting him down. The Spartan hero may not be as we remember him in years past - Alone, heroic and alive. The recent trailer shows him as dead but we know that the Chief is taking a moment to rest before he finishes the mission at hand. We hope.

For a moment, think of the top 5 shooters to date. Think about it one more time, did Halo make your top 5 list? It seems like no one is really talking about it, either that or 343 industries is doing a stellar job at keeping the details under wraps. We see his painting on the walls of london and at same time, they call him traitor. We see the newly design covenant vehicles and we yearn for a more sociable narrative. Should we blame ourselves for the lack of hype for Halo 5?
