Who is doing Master Chief's voice in Forward Unto Dawn?

#1 Edited by KalAl (45 posts) -

Couldn't find this info anywhere I looked. The cast list shows Daniel Cudmore as the "actor", but as far as I know he just wears the suit. And there's no way that it's Steve Downes' voice unless he recently received a vocal cord transplant.

Whoever they got sounds really familiar though, that's why I'm so curious.

It's a sound-alike, a few of the 343 devs like Frankie confirmed it. I guess it's because chronologically, the chief is only 15 at this point o.O

It's Steve Downes in Halo 4 though (during which the chief is anywhere from 25-40 years old physically, taking interstellar travel and cryosleep into account)

Now you have just made me want Halo 6 to have Old Chief in it.

Chief finally takes off his helmet to reveal that he is Old Snake.

And I'll play the entire game with the young chief face camo because I can't accept it.

Not sure, it has not been said, it is not Steve Downs though, since Chief is 15 or 16 he needed a slightly younger voice.
