* As it turns out, they're actually making ''Halo Wars 2''. No idea yet how it'll relate to the Reclaimer Saga, though.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Rookie (J.D.) is named after his ancestor...]]
[[Series/{{Scrubs}} John "J.D." Dorian]]. All the missions played from another character's point of view are actually just extremely long [[MrImagination J.D.-style]] daydreams.

In Halo: Cryptum, we learned that ancient Humans discovered how to destroy to Flood. A geas was placed on Chakas which would eventually uncover said secret. However, since the Forerunners had to activate the Halos, we can assume that they never found out said secret. But in the new ForerunnerSaga book, Primordium, Chakas appears to be conversing with the "last Reclaimer". Now, here's what I think: in the new Reclaimer Trilogy, the galaxy will face a resurgence of Flood, possibly with extragalactic origins. Chief will find Chakas, learn the secret, and permanently wipe out the Flood. What do you think?

** ''Mythos'' strongly implies that this is indeed the case.

Considering that there is a lot of symbolism in ODST refering to [[DivineComedy Inferno]], this one actually has a lot of weight. We know that the Rookie has the initials J.D.. He's led around by an AI/Engineer [[BuffySpeak thing]] named Vergil. The audio logs, which the player finds, subtly refer to the SevenDeadlySins, and karmic punishments for them. Add this up, and the odds of the players name being Lance Corporal Jonathan Dantes (or some other J name) gets much higher.

* Jossed by ''Halo 3'' which marks the return of both the Assault Rifle and futuristic armor. Also, ''Halo 2: Anniversary'' gives the marines' armor a major visual overhaul that makes it look plenty "futuristic".







to:

* More likely, the ''Halo''-verse is a new universe that was created ''after'' the ''Marathon'' universe finally ends.



** Joshed by GameInformer magazine. It's a Forerunner Sheildworld known as "Requiem".

to:

** Also, as mentioned above, the Legendary Planet is called "Requiem".




to:

* Sort of jossed; [[spoiler:Chief does get to fight an actual Forerunner in ''Halo 4'', but Cortana remains loyal to him. ''Halo 5'', on the other hand...]]













to:

*** In fact, it's been revealed that the Covenant species you met in the games are ''not'' the only ones; there's an entire array of fringe species that the Covenant core races also have to keep an eye on.



** [[spoiler: Ghosts of Onyx spells where she fairly well: she's trapped in a Forerunner Shield World with Halsey, Mendez, Kelly, Fred, and all the remaining Spartan III's.]]

*** According to 343, the rest of Gamma Company are still alive and kicking in the post-war galaxy; most are still taking on missions, though the UNSC has been trying to rehabilitate some of them back to civilian life.







to:

* Jossed by ''Halo 4'': Cortana is on the brink of rampancy-induced death by the start of the game. Also, [[spoiler:she sacrifices herself to save the Chief. Not that it sticks, but it's the thought that counts.]]






* Pretty much confrimed by Karen Traviss's short story "Human Weakness".

* Pretty much confrimed confirmed by Karen Traviss's short story "Human Weakness".




to:

** That said, the ''Forerunner Saga'' also strongly implies that the two species do have a common ancestor (in the way that chimps and monkeys do).




to:

* This WMG's details got Jossed by ''Halo 4''.




to:

** Jossed by ''The Forerunner Saga''; the Flood are actually [[spoiler:the last of the Forerunners' own Precursors]].




to:

* Jossed by ''Halo 4''.



** In fact, ''Literature/HaloNewBlood'' shows him talking after the events of ''ODST''.

Buck's squad after the war, [[spoiler:and dies less then a year after the end of the original trilogy]].

** As it turns out, [[spoiler:only ''some'' Forerunners were interested in humans, and it seems to have been because the two races had striking similarities despite being separate species.]]




to:

* [[spoiler:Possibly confirmed by ''The Forerunner Saga'', which reveals that they're actually older than the known universe. There is one thing this WMG got wrong, though; it turns out that the Precursors ''are'' the Flood.]]







to:

* [[spoiler:Mostly jossed; ''The Forerunner Saga'' reveals that the Flood are actually just one of many forms a Precursor can take. That said, there are some slight hints that the pre-Flood Precursors had pan-dimensional abilities.]]




to:

* Jossed by ''The Forerunner Saga'' and ''Halo 4''; the Legendary Planet is just a Forerunner shield world named Requiem, with the Forerunners having already accidentally destroyed their actual homeworld, Ghibalb, during a stellar engineering experiment. The ending of ''Silentium'' indicates that [[spoiler:the surviving Forerunners actually ''left'' the Milky Way, doing so because they simply no longer wanted to meddle in the affairs of other species.]]






* [[spoiler: Halo: Primordium]] certainly [[spoiler: supports this theory.]]

to:

* [[spoiler: Halo: Primordium]] certainly [[spoiler: supports confirms this theory.]]




to:

** [[spoiler:As it turns out, the Precursors were simply the ''creators'' of humanity (and the Forerunners, and a bunch of other sentient species).]]




to:

* Completely jossed by ''The Forerunner Saga''; humans, Prophets, and all the other major species had already existed millions of years before the Halos were ever fired. In fact, [[spoiler:it was the ''Precursors'' who created many of the galaxy's sentient species, including both humans ''and'' Forerunners.]] Also, the Forerunners didn't create the Flood; [[spoiler:once again, the Precursors did (or, more accurately, turned themselves into the Flood)]].




to:

* Also jossed by the actual games; the main baddies are still Covenant and Forerunner constructs.




to:

*** Again, that estimate was made in-universe when the UNSC still thought the Covenant Navy was a lot smaller and weaker than it actually was.




to:

* Basically confirmed by ''The Fall of Reach'' and Halsey's Journal, which both indicate that Cortana knew ''something'' important was located at the coordinates that she sent the ''Autumn'' to; the former also indicates that she did keep that bit of knowledge secret from Keyes. That said, she genuinely didn't know that Halo would kill ''all'' life until Chief plugged her into the control room.




to:

* Jossed by ''Halo 4''; Chief and Cortana don't make contact with any other humans until over four years after the end of ''Halo 3'', and the ship they make contact with is the ''Infinity''.




to:

** Adding on to this, Bungie/343's current stance is that Boren's Syndrome doesn't really grant full immunity; "[[ComicBook/TheHaloGraphicNovel Breaking Quarantine]]" was written precisely because Bungie hated the BS ([[FunWithAcronyms heh]]) explanation and wanted to retcon it away.




to:

* Jossed: the reprint of ''Literature/HaloTheFlood'' and the "Data Drops" reconfirm that the soldiers in the first game were Marines; the change in armor was just a consequence of ''CE: Anniversary'' taking most of its designs from ''Reach''. Also, Word of God is that the soldiers fighting alongside you in ''Reach''[='s=] last "main" level are actually Marines themselves (note that their armor is actually somewhat different from the Army troopers you've been fighting alongside previously).




to:

** [[As clarified in ''Silentium'', the Precursors actually ''turned themselves into'' the Flood.]]




to:

* They did remake ''Halo 2'', but the only thing upgraded in the campaign were the cutscenes and graphics.




to:

* Jossed by ''The Forerunner Saga'': [[spoiler:the Flood are just the current form the actual Precursors have chosen to take for now.]]












** Jossed by both WordOfGod and ''ODST''; the latter features Johnson in its closing cutscene (an event which is stated by Buck in ''New Blood'' to have actually happened), despite Chief being completely absent in that game.













to:

* Then an even newer version of ''The Fall of Reach'' restored the number back to what it was in the original print. So we're back to square one.













to:

* Jossed: [[spoiler:Lord Hood lets Halsey remain in captivity for years after the end of ''Glasslands'', and when Halsey and Chief finally meet again, she's already basically free from ONI's clutches.]]




to:

** [[spoiler:He's absent from ''5'', but we'll have to wait and see if he's pulling any strings from behind the scenes.]]




to:

* As it turns out, they're actually making ''Halo Wars 2''. No idea yet how it'll relate to the Reclaimer Saga, though.







to:

* Basically Jossed: ''Halo 5'' [='s=] ending leaves no room for this kind of thing to happen at the beginning of ''6''.







to:

* Half-confirmed: The Brutes are still absent, but we do get to ally with the Arbiter and his forces in ''5''.


















** Actually, the official explanation is that the appearance of the ''Halo 4'' Covenant simply represent different phenotypes from what we've seen before, with their previous physical appearances still being canon (after all, it's not like humans or dogs all look the same either). The ''4'' Jackals are even explicitly stated be a separate subspecies from the ones in the original trilogy.

to:

* As it turns out, [[spoiler:the Precursors actually willingly turned themselves into the Flood.]]









* Actually, the Chief and Cortana weren't simply left behind, but completely teleported to a new location far away from the Ark, due to the inherit wonkiness of slipspace physics; in fact, subsequent media has revealed that the Ark is still intact, if heavily damaged, and was ''still'' being visited by UNSC exploratory groups between the events of ''3'' and ''4'', with none of them seeing anything of the ''Dawn'' (and the Chief and Cortana seeing nothing of the Ark during the end of ''3''). Additionally, ''Halo 2'' points out that firing one ring the standard way ''will'' set off the other ones, the firing of the incomplete 04 being more of an exception.
