Unfinished ‘Halo Infinite’ cutscene hints at a future storyline

There’s more to Halo Infinite’s story than it appears — unofficially, at least. Windows Central notes fans have discovered an unfinished mid-credit cutscene hidden in the game’s code. As you can see below, it’s not just a throwaway moment, either. If anything, it’s a strong hint at what might come next in a story add-on or sequel.

Halo Infinite future storyline:

The cutscene shows Esparza, the pilot you meet at the start of Halo Infinite, alerting Master Chief to a friendly UNSC tag. While the short segment is mysterious, some have speculated the tag belongs to a character that wasn’t present in the core campaign, such as Commander Palmer or Spartan Locke. You might have a ‘new’ ally when the story picks up.

It’s not clear why 343 Industries left the cutscene code in the official release, or whether the clip reflects what you’ll see in future content. We’ve asked for more information. Whatever the explanation, it’s rare to see such potentially important material hiding in files a player could uncover.

Ultimately, only time will tell who these allies are, but it’s clear that since the Banished still control most of Zeta Halo and since Atriox has likely released The Endless, Master Chief and company are going to need all the help they can get. Hopefully we’ll get to see these allies in action in future Halo Infinite Story DLCs.
