There is just something about a mysterious man in super armour, right? Is there anything more badass or cool than seeing a guy rock up in gear which is designed to making him the ultimate war machine? Microsoft thinks it too, it seems, as they tease the idea that Doom Guy and Master Chief could team up in the future.
Master Chief has always been part of the Microsoft family, but Doom Guy? That's recently new. In an announcement made earlier this year, Microsoft revealed that they had acquired Zenimax Media, the parent company of is Software, Arkane Studios, Bethesda and more. That means that now Microsoft owns both the rights to Doom Guy and Master Chief, so a collaboration between the two iconic characters isn't completely off the table.
On the Halo Instagram page, a picture was put up of the characters back to back and surrounded by fire as they presumably face something pretty scary. Halo has the caption "Who would you want at your side to take on the duo of Master Chief and Doomguy?" which implies that we are the ones fighting the super soldiers? No thank, I'd personally prefer to be on their side actually.
Halo also tags the creator of the artwork, bajibaji on Instagram who makes these digital pieces of art a lot from the looks of their page. This might be the most inspired, though, as the Halo team definitely thought to share their brilliant team-up idea with fans of the series.
The Zenimax buyout by Microsoft has made waves in the expectations for next-gen gaming. Bethesda's founder, and ex-CTO Christopher Weaver, commended Microsoft on the deal while Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox division, said that to make the deal worth the $7.5 billion, The Elder Scrolls 6 didn't need to come to PlayStation 5s. Well at least if we get a cool crossover out of the deal, we're not going to complain.
