343 Industries recently revealed that, they are not ready to reveal Master Chief’s Face yet.
Speaking with Eurogamer, Halo franchise development director Frank O’Connor explained that while the studio isn’t ready to reveal Chief’s face, his face has been well-documented before, adding, “The funny thing about the Chief is he’s actually really well described.”
“If you went down into that line and found a nerd with a deep canon Halo t-shirt and said describe the Master Chief to this police sketch artist, that police sketch artist would then produce a perfectly accurate rendering of an older man, almost painfully pale, almost albino white, with pale blue eyes, reddish hair, close cropped to a skin head, and maybe the last remnants of freckles he had when he was a kid.”
When asked about killing Master Chief in game, O’Connor stated “That’s a conversation I can’t get into. I’ll say that in Halo 4, things happen. Previously we’ve been scared to commit to difficult paths in our game, but good interesting stories have things that happen in them that are not comfortable and that are meaningful and that are permanent.
“I’m not trying to hint at something other than our general philosophy and the shift in the attitude we’re taking about storytelling. We can make the story matter more to people by doing things that matter. That’s not rocket science. Luckily we have a publisher and owner that allows us that freedom and they trust us to make the right decisions with the fiction and the universe.”
Do you think they should end Master Chief’s story?
