It was like one throw away line though.afroebob said:They said it in the beginning of the game, it is a rogue branch of ex-Covenant soldiers. I mean, if you don't know at some point in time, especially after a war, most branches of the military have SOME kind of people going rogue. Not to mention there are far more than just Elites in the Storm Covenant.Vrex360 said:With almost no one in the game questioning it and it never being explored again.
Anyhow, I could have seen a new trilogy, but I don't know about a saga. That's just too fucking much, there wont be enough story for it to work with.
Chief: "I thought we had a truce with the Covenant*"
Cortana: "A lot can happen in Four Years."
And that's it. There's like one other line about how they aren't outfitted like regular military and that they are more fanatical than usual but that's all we get. No mention of the Arbiter, no mention of the political state of affairs between human and covenant species. It's like everything that happened in Halo 2 and 3 is utterly negated and forgotten about. When on the Infinity Masterchief never bothers to ask anyone what these guys are doing here and just to make it even more obnoxious they are still referred to as 'The Covenant' even though the Covenant was supposed to be defeated. If they were referred to as 'the Storm' at least that would separate them from the actual covenant empire, as it stands now it's just confusing and really disappointing considering all the directions they could have taken this.
*No chief, you had allied with the Elites. Remember? They were not a part of the Covenant anymore.
