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.)
How did we do?
We hope you found this article useful, or informative, or thought provoking, or maybe even a little entertaining. Perhaps it was a guide that helped you through a tricky bit, or we even saved you some money? Lovely stuff! If you'd like to say "thanks" you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
