During the credits, Halo Infinite was supposed to have a cutscene that opens up some avenues for the story: it was deleted but restored during the data collection process.
Halo Infinite’s hidden scene was discovered through data collection but was removed from the game for unknown reasons: it was supposed to appear in the credits as a kind of cliffhanger.
It is difficult to tell if this is a spoiler or not, as the scene is not part of the official story at this point. However, it can represent anticipation as it shows some of the characters in the game and therefore indicates their presence at the end of the story.
We see the UNSC pilot and the Master Chief receiving a radio broadcast in the scene. In the background, you can hear Morse code, which, according to many, translates as “UNSC TAG DET,” that is, the UNSC recognition tag that is detected by the system, as well as a voice message from the system, which informs the fact that the source of the message is ” friend, “so it is not a threat.
According to many, the transfer could have originated from UNSC Infinity. It is unlikely that the giant ship was destroyed, and there was absolutely no one left on board. The sender of the message could be Commander Thomas Lasky. Some argue that the source could also be the Spirit of Fire, a ship currently missing after Halo Wars but remains in the game’s lore as a recurring feature.
Another hypothesis could be a kind of introduction to the co-op campaign, where this cryptic transmission introduces the second player from a “friend.” However, the fact that the scene has been deleted raises additional questions, with the thought that it could be restored later or that these ideas for possible additions to the story have been rejected for now.
