We've never properly seen Master Chief's face in the Halo video games, but that's set to change when the live-action Paramount Plus series debuts next month.

Speaking to IGN this week, Halo's Transmedia boss Kiki Wolfkill reiterated how Master Chief's face will be on display in the new digital series. Of course, the face we'll actually be seeing on screen is Pablo Schreiber - the actor playing 117.

Here's exactly what she had to say:

“You will see his face...For some people, it’s been a moment 20 years in the making, and for other people it is something that feels very hard to imagine. We absolutely respect both sides of that fence, those who really want to see Chief’s face and those who really don’t. But for the nature of this story, it felt really important to connect with the Master Chief in a different way, and that meant showing the face.”

If you would rather not see Chief's face, there's no need to worry - as the live-action series won't be 'core-canon' and is instead part of its own (separate) timeline known as "Halo Silver". This means you technically don't have to watch it to keep up with Halo lore, and that it won't impact the stories told in the games, books, or other forms of entertainment.

The Paramount series has apparently taken this approach in order to protect the series. Halo's first season on Paramount Plus will launch on March 24th and earlier this week was renewed for a second season.
