The Halo team has dropped a Halo Infinite teaser video with the message, "SIGNAL DETECTED. TAG DESIGNATION: FOE." The video features a warning from the Banished - a splinter faction of The Covenant. Watch the full thing above!

Here's a transcript of the message heard in the video:

“The hour approaches. Forces occupy the ring. Within hours, it will be under our control. Humanity will burn. The brazen defiance will be all but a memory. No more Prophets. No more lies. We stand together, brothers to the end. We are his will, we are his legacy, we are The Banished.”

The Banished most recently appeared in 2017's Halo Wars 2, but has never featured in the main Halo series. We're assuming we'll hear a lot more about what role they'll play in Halo Infinite at next month's Inside Xbox event.
