Unofficially, there’s more to Halo Infinite’s story than meets the eye. Fans have discovered an unfinished mid-credit cutscene hidden in the game’s code, according to Windows Central.
As you can see in the video below, it’s not just a fluke. If anything, it’s a strong hint at what’s to come in a story extension or sequel.
Esparza, the pilot you meet at the start of Halo Infinite, alerts Master Chief to a friendly UNSC tag in the cutscene.
While the short segment is mysterious, some speculate that the tag belongs to a character who did not appear in the main campaign, such as Commander Palmer or Spartan Locke. When the story picks up, you might have a ‘new’ ally.
It’s unclear why 343 Industries included the cutscene code in the official release, or whether the clip is representative of future content.
We’ve requested more information. Whatever the reason, it’s unusual to find such potentially important information hidden in files that a player could discover.
