The Season 6 theme is Fireteam Raven, a name that should be familiar to those who have visited Dave & Buster’s to play the Halo arcade game. That game uses an enormous display and turrets, and it first launched in 2018.
When full patch notes have been released for Season 6, you’ll see them here.
As for Halo Infinite, details the on the game’s campaign remain pretty limited at the moment, though we do know one character from the Halo: Shadows of Reach novel will make an appearance. Actor Verlon Roberts made the announcement during a podcast, saying he’s playing a character named Spartan Griffin. As of Halo 4, there are several other Spartans in addition to the Master Chief, though the newer ones are part of a different program that, thankfully, relies on volunteering adults instead of kidnapped children.
