The rumor mill has begun spinning for 343 Industries with the leak of a brand new image of what is reported to be a still image from a commercial film shoot for the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians.

The picture, which  was first posted on Reddit, shows a beat-up Master Chief and who appears to be Agent Locke from the Nightfall series. The real questions, however, are how they both got there and what exactly happened to Master Chief? Is he in trouble and in need of saving, or is Locke the one who’s responsible for his current state?

Of course, this isn’t a confirmed image from the game, so it might all be unfounded hogwash. However, it is fun to speculate about the possibilities we are presented here. So go ahead!

Halo 5: Guardians is scheduled to be released later this year, exclusively on Xbox One.
