Halo Infinite Hints At The Return Of The Banished (VIDEO)

Halo Infinite

The Halo franchise has been lacking some of its older adversaries with the switch in focus to the forerunners in recent games. Nonetheless, Covenant species like grunts and Elites were still present. However, the mercenary organization known as The Banished found themselves missing from the last few titles. Now, it seems that the group will be making a major return in Halo Infinite as revealed by a new teaser.

A recent teaser has been released that features a voice from a member of The Banished, a playable faction within Halo Wars 2. Within the quick video, the voice of The Banished states that the group is attempting to occupy a Halo ring and are an extension of “His” will and legacy, though who the voice is referring to remains unclear. It is possible that the reference is to that of Atriox, the leader of The Banished in Halo Wars 2 as the group went to war with the UNSC Pillar of Fire, with the combat eventually spilling out onto a new Halo installation. How The Banished will play a part in Halo Infinite has yet to be uncovered, but it will be interesting to see the group make a return to the main franchise nonetheless.

The hour approaches. Forces occupy the ring. Within hours, it will be under our control. Humanity will burn. The brazen defiance will be all but a memory. No more Prophets. No more lies. We stand together, brothers to the end. We are his will, we are his legacy, we are The Banished.

Halo Infinite is set to be launched later this year for the Xbox Series X and PC though no official release date has been set at this time.
