He may have finished the fight, but Chief’s not done. Far from it.

Heavy spoiler warning after the jump regarding the ending of Halo 3.

343 Industries boss Frankie O’Connor told a panel at Comic-Con last night that it would be a bit of a tit if it didn’t finish off Master Chief’s story following the conclusion of Halo 3.

“We’d have to be the world’s biggest assholes not to follow through,” said O’Connor.

“We certainly haven’t seen the last of Master Chief.”

Time to stick your fingers in your ears and close your eyes if you don’t want the end of Halo 3 spoiled.

At the end of Halo 3, Master Chief and Cortana are stuck on one half of a ship which has split in two, before Chief gets sent into cryosleep.

In the Legendary ending for Halo 3, a mysterious planet is seen in the horizon. O’Connor confirmed at the event that it was indeed a planet, not a spaceship.

Last week, it was spotted that 343 had kicked off work on a new project, which was built specifically for the Halo IP following original developer Bungie’s wishes to move away from the series.

Thanks, IGN and Gamerzines.
