Halo 3 and its phases have been cancelled
The Halo franchise is well-known, including novels, games, shows, and comics. Halo 3, released in 2007 to conclude Bungie’s original trilogy, is one of the greatest Halos to date, with a memorable story and excellent multiplayer. He did, however, have two or three stages of his campaign deleted. That is a really odd and intriguing tale.
Forest of the Guardians
The Guardian Forest level would take place between The Ark and The Covenant levels, and would take place in a strange Forerunner forest where the Master Chief would be on a train surrounded by Covenant troops. Once there, he would pilot a Hornet in front of the Forerunner forest until the Covenant stage.
This path, however, would be littered with Banshees sent from a Prophet’s ship, Enforcers, and two types of aerial enemies that were cut: the first would be a Forerunner sentry called the Strato-Sentinel, which was made to assist Forerunners in various tasks and later appeared in the animated/anime series Halo Legends and Halo Wars 2; and the initial concept of the Guardians of Halo
RejectedShotgun, a YouTuber, rebuilt and “rescued” the Guardian model.
Not everything, however, went wrong. The Guardian Forest stage from Halo 3 multiplayer has been re-adapted to the Guardian map, and even the Guardians’ original idea appears to be utilized in Halo Infinite.
Before proceeding to the next level, I must note that the Floodgate phase was split into two sections in the final game: one became the Cortana phase, one of the franchise’s worst phases in my view, and the other became the Floodgate phase itself. In other words, you may save Cortana from the Gravemind’s grasp sooner.
Returning to the subject of canceled levels, The Lost City or Forerunner Condo would have been a city built for Forerunner scientists and served as a graphical test for the game, but it was canceled because “it was so immersive it could have played just that,” according to its creator, Paul Russell.
