WARNING THIS IS A MAJOR SPOILER DO NOT READ OR WATCH VIDEO UNLESS YOU HAVE FINISHED THE GAME OR DONT CARE ABOUT SPOILERS.
So you were upset that Master Chief wasn’t included in Bungie’s conclusion to it’s contribution to the Halo franchise? Well, rest easy it’s been found that there is an easter egg in Halo: Reach which shows Master Chief on the pillar of Autumn right after the final cutscene in the game.
Once blasting the Covenant ship, helping the Pillar of Autumn to escape Reach, you will be treated to a cutscene showing the ship leaving and a Pelican ship flying into the Pillar of Autumn if you hold right on the stick you can pan over and see Master Chief resting in his cryostasis chamber. Which all of you know is right where Halo C.E. picks up.
I didn’t catch this the first time, but kudos to Superwiseman5834 from Youtube.
