“One year after the events of Halo 5: Guardians, the UNSC Infinity is attacked by the Banished, a faction of former Covenant species led by the warlord Atriox. Atriox quickly defeats the Master Chief and hurls him into space as the Infinity is destroyed by the Banished. Six months later, a UNSC pilot code-named Echo 216 discovers the Chief adrift in space and brings him into his Pelican dropship, restoring power to his armor.
The Chief and Echo-216 travel to the nearby surface of Zeta Halo (Installation 07), one of the seven installations of the Halo Array, which has been severely damaged and fragmented by an unknown calamity. On the surface of the ring, the Chief locates the Weapon, an artificial intelligence designed to imitate Cortana to capture her for deletion. While the Weapon states that she was successful in her mission, she has failed to self-delete per her programming, for unknown reasons. The Chief retrieves the Weapon, and begins to experience visions of Cortana’s memories and thoughts, which the Weapon explains are “dust and echoes” lingering after Cortana’s death.”
