Bungie writer Joseph Staten has told OXM that there will be a link between the recently released Halo 3: ODST and 2010’s Halo: Reach.
“The Halo Universe has always had these interconnections but when we made ODST we had the luxury of knowing the Halo game we were going to make next,” he told the mag. “So it made a lot of sense to us to put those kind of connections in.” said Staten.
Staten also mentioned that even though Halo 3: ODST character Buck was there during the events of Halo: Reach he isn’t sure whether or not he will have a role in the upcoming game.
“Buck has very specific lines about what he witnessed on planet Reach and we absolutely wanted to telegraph some of that stuff. Whether or not he’s going to show up in Halo: Reach we’re not talking about / have no idea.”
