Mysterious data chip? Is this a bad interpretation of the trailer?

GAF determined that from the E3 trailer that Master Chief is going deep under cover in Mexico with a sombrero and poncho to escape the Flood. Why must the Microsoft store try to cover up the truth.

I beat every halo game except 4. I was so tired of the grunts and elites....but prometheans were so much more of a drag for me I didn't even get halfway.

The universe is so awesome they need better things for me to shoot

How would the flood in that galaxy have spartan forms?

How does this even confirm flood?

You're thinking of Spartan Assault, spartan ops was the weekly episodic mode in halo 4.

It doesn't confirm them, but it strongly suggests them.

If it doesn't have that Halo charm that the series has gravely lacked since Halo 3, I'm not interested.

Definitely not an A.I. chip, right?

But seriously, this is shaping up to be a great campaign.

Rogue Chief, Possible Ark and Mendicant Bias, Next-Gen capabilities, I'm hyped.

It's actually a potato chip. Master Chief needs to deliver the prototype for the newest flavour of Lays to their production factories, and he can only make it in time without the chip getting slightly stale and lacking flavour by passing through Flood territory.

Pretty much what I'm hoping for too, I was pretty disappointed when the Infinity appeared so early on in 4.

Master Chief Petty Officer is the highest rank, IIRC.

Is Master Chief not the highest rank attainable for Spartan? His designation has always confused me.

Wait, how did you infer that much from what we currently know?

I wish I could get hyped. Halo is one of my favourite franchises but I'm pretty ready to skip town on the platform it's on.
