Any fan of the Halo game series knows there has been one thing kept the same through every iteration of the game – Master Chief’s helmet stays on. His face has never been shown on screen for over 20 years, until now. Master Chief is being portrayed by Pablo Schreiber and will see humanity take on an alien force called The Covenant.
It has been confirmed that in the Halo TV series which premieres on 24th March on Paramount Plus that Master Chief will be revealing his face. Halo’s executive producer and 343 Industries’ Studio Head of Transmedia, Kiki Wolfkill spoke to IGN about it:
“I think we set out to tell a character story and a personal story,” she explained. “And once we really got into what that story was, it became clear that you really needed to see the person in the armor and under the helmet.”
“You will see his face. For some people, it’s been a moment 20 years in the making, and for other people, it is something that feels very hard to imagine. We absolutely respect both sides of that fence, those who really want to see Chief’s face and those who really don’t. But for the nature of this story, it felt really important to connect with the Master Chief in a different way, and that meant showing the face.”
It’s no real surprise that this has happened due to Master Chief’s voice actor, Steve Downes not being cast as the main hero. With Pablo Schreiber being cast, it made perfect sense for Master Chief’s face to be seen. It has also not been mentioned how often he will be without his helmet in the TV series. Either way, I’m personally looking forward to seeing this after being a halo fan for years!
