Master Chief is one of gaming’s few men without faces and according to 343 Industries, the protagonist will stay in his suit of armor for Halo 5: Guardians. Tim Longo is the creative director at 343 Industries and recently he spoke at Microsoft’s X15 event in Canada about whether or not gamers will see the Chief without his helmet.
I actually don’t even know if I can talk about that. [Master Chief] doesn’t take his helmet off.
Fans of the series will recall that beating the game on Legendary gave a brief flash of Master Chief, but 343 certainly hasn’t elaborated on it and admitting that Master Chief doesn’t take his helmet off could be clever misdirection.
What do you think? Should Master Chief’s physical appearance ever be revealed or should he be encased in that suit of Spartan armor forever?
