“I’m a playable character in Halo 5.” Those were the words uttered by voice actor Mike Colter, who plays Agent Locke in the Halo: Nightfall series, during a recent interview with X-One magazine, which was discovered by a Reddit user. But the bigger question is what exact role will he play in the game. Colter share more details on his involvement with the game:
“Once Halo: The Master Chief Collection is released, and then Halo 5 comes out shortly thereafter, you’re basically going to be playing a game with me as the primary character…What’s not known, is whether I’m a friend or a foe. The relationship between Master Chief and Jameson Locke is going to be interesting. Because what’s the outcome? Is he dead or alive? Because that’s usually what a manhunt comes down to, dead or alive, but you won’t know what the purpose of finding Master Chief is [right away]…Or what will happen if we do find him, what condition he will be in, and where he’s at mentally. But I’m sure that will be a plot twist in Halo 5.”
Interesting tidbits. Wonder if Microsoft is happy with the comments. Oh well. Halo: Nightfall releases on the Halo Channel on November 11, as Halo 5: Guardians launches sometime in 2015.
