This year’s Halo TV series will bring about a big change for the franchise and will see the face of Master Chief. Halo Transmedia boss Kiki Wolfkill confirmed this today IGN.
She explained why it was important to show Master Chief’s face, which will be that of actor Pablo Schreiber. “I think we wanted to tell a character story and a personal story,” she said. “And as we really delved into that story, it became clear that you really needed to see the person in the armor and under the helmet.”
Wolfkill made it very clear: “You’ll see his face.” Wolfkill went on to say that while she understands and respects those who don’t want to see Master Chief’s face, it’s important that history finally reveals his face.
“For some people, it was a 20-year labored moment, and for others, it’s something that feels very difficult to imagine,” Wolfkill said. “We absolutely respect both sides of that fence, those who really want to see Chief’s face and those who really don’t want that was called showing his face.”
The Halo TV series has its own canon known as the Silver Timeline. So what happens on the show doesn’t necessarily impact the games or other media.
The TV series Halo, due out March 24 on Paramount+, also stars Natascha McElhone as Dr. Halsey. Jen Taylor, who voices Cortana in the video game series, will also play Cortana on the show.
Paramount+ seems to have a lot of confidence and excitement for the Halo series since Season 2 has already been announced.
In other news, Microsoft recently announced that Halo Infinite has set a new record for the largest launch in franchise history, already topping 20 million players. Xbox is also doing great overall, having just hit its best-grossing year in Xbox’s 20-year history.
