At E3 when Halo 4 was announced we were told it was a new trilogy, however it didn’t have a name. At PAX 343 held a Halo 4 panel, in which they had a Q&A with fans, they asked questions where 343 where forced to say “We can’t talk about that”. However one piece of information was announced, the name of the trilogy.
“This trilogy is a direct continuation to the events in Halo 3. “It will deal with the fate of John and the fate of Cortana.” Frank O’Connor had said before announcing the name of the trilogy will be The Reclaimer Trilogy. The Halo Wiki has said that a Reclaimer is,”an individual who, whether by chance or by precedent, has been placed in charge of activating a Halo super-weapon. It has also been demonstrated that it is the role of a Reclaimer to activate Forerunner technology on installations such as The Ark or the Shield Worlds, it is also true that other undiscovered Forerunner constructs also require a Reclaimer to operate in some fashion lay scattered across the galaxy. The exact qualifications of a Reclaimer are not entirely clear however it appears that only a human or Forerunner can be a Reclaimer.”
So this might mean the Chief has to activate a Halo weapon to maybe destroy the Covenant? or The Flood? or a new enemy? Whichever it is we will tell you as soon as possible.
