The Halo Infinite campaign mode and its story has been on the minds of many fans since our last look at the next blockbuster Halo game, featured at E3 2019. So far, we only have the bare bones from two cinematic trailers which did not showcase any gameplay. With a tentative release date of winter 2020 which is also when Xbox Series X is set to release, we have been wanting more ever since.
Halo's story mode has always been one to captivate fans throughout the years, from traversing the dark streets in Halo ODST to linking up with your squad in Halo Reach, 343 has always done an amazing job at giving fans a unique and breathtaking experience.
Now, we are at the crossroads, with Halo 5's ending in the back of our minds leading up to Infinite, what do we know so far and how will it play into Infinite's story mode?

The Leadup to Infinite
Before we dive into Halo Infinite's story mode, let us rewind a few years ago to the previous Halo title and also remember that Halo Infinite's story mode is set years after the episodes of Halo 5. At the conclusion of the Halo 5 legendary ending, we are given a teaser of what seems to be a new Halo ring installation that will play some effect into the next title.
Another note from Halo 5 is that we are almost set up for a Cortana villain this time around after her actions towards the back half of Halo 5. Another story mode element that fans have also speculated that could be a factor in Infinite, albeit a small one is the Halo Wars 2 ending. There have been some links to the two-story modes potentially crossing over in some capacity but there is a slim chance.
So, Halo ring, evil Cortana and a Master Chief who has just woken up. Essentially all we know going into Halo Infinite, but we can already predict what is going to happen.
All We Know So Far
We have been given very limited information about Infinite's story mode to date or rather the whole game. 343 has been very secretive about the newest Halo game and the upcoming Project Scarlett, but from the cinematic trailers showcased to us, we have somewhat of an idea on how the story mode will play out.
Thankfully to many Halo fans the Master Chief will be the main protagonist heading into Infinite, we know the story is set many years after the events of Halo 5 and the Chief appears to wake up in some sort of distorted space with everything destroyed around him. Master Chief is also woken up and the first thing he witnesses outside is a destroyed Halo ring and the phrase "we lost". Other than that we know nothing so far, and it may be a while until we fully get another look at Infinite but nevertheless the campaign mode so far is set to be one of the best so far with a unique storyline.
