The latest teaser trailer for Halo Infinite reintroduces a (very recent) returning villain.
We don’t know all that much about Halo Infinite yet. We’ve seen some dude in a space ship end up having to scrape Master Chief off his windshield. We’ve seen a broken Halo Ring in a pretty grassland.
And that’s about it, really.
But today, we got a look at who the villain will be in a new Halo Infinite teaser trailer, and it’s someone we’ve run into before.

The Banished were a group of mercenaries who broke off from the Covenant in Halo Wars 2. It’s a bold choice to go for a villain from a realtime strategy spin-off to the Halo series, and such a recent one at that. Perhaps The Banished won’t be the only antagonists in Halo Infinite?
(Hint: It’s been a while since the last time Cortana went on a rampage, right? If we were the UNSC, we’d probably just build AI that didn’t go bad after seven years.)
