Halo 5: Guardians character Master Chief has been confirmed as the main character of the game, Game Rant reports.
One of the game’s voice actors Mike Coulter’s recent comment about Agent Lock being the “primary character” for the game spurred rumors about Master Chief not being the main character for the game.
“Once Halo: The Master Chief Collection is released, and then Halo 5 comes out shortly thereafter, you’re basically going to be playing a game with me as the primary character,” Colter said, according to Polygon.
“I’ll have some cool weaponry, and some cool abilities, because by that time I’ll be a Spartan IV.”
