"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. - William Shakespeare"

We know for sure Halo 3: ODST had a poster of Destiny in it. Well, Halo 3: ODST came out before Halo Reach. So, could Bungie of added a hint to Destiny in Halo Reach and no one has found it yet?

I am the Thorian, known as Species 37 to you people. I am an ancient sentient plant that is fifty thousand years old. My ability to hibernate for thousands of years makes my real age impossible to guess though you are welcome to try.

It is a possibility that there is a Destiny easter egg hiding in plain sight now we know some of the concept art for Destiny.

Close, but the plague killed those infected with it, and the ignorant are still alive.
I wish ignorance was a plague.

I wouldn't be surprised. Since we don't know much about Destiny, it's hard to know what to look for.

I've always felt that the Long Night of Solace mission was a testbed for Destiny. The space mission is not only a blast, but just seems like its itching to be explored moreso in a future title.

I always thought this too. I honestly expected them to include the same kind of mechanics in a multiplayer dlc or something.

I do find it odd that everyone knows about the Destiny egg in ODST but one hasn't been found in Reach.

I do agree with Revan though.

I hope so; LNoS was easily my favorite mission in Reach, purely for the space combat.

Well, I went through the entire Halo Reach campaign today and found some strange pictures (I'll post them later) but other then that I couldn't really find anything really related to Destiny that much.

The level featured several unskippable cutscenes. Really long ones, even after E3.

It was definitely a preview of some sort.

I have long waited for a solid out of map experience.

Knowing Bungie, they will not be afraid if the game ends up lagging. They know prioritization in that area.

Don't do anything you wouldn't want to have to explain to paramedics. Trust me, I'm a pilot.

I'd be surprised if there wasn't some sort of Destiny easter egg in Reach. Now that we've seen some concept art and have an idea as to what we should be looking for, I'm sure we could find something.

I acknowledge my user name is stupid. However, I promise I'm not.

Disclaimer: The latter is a lie.

As well as ODST's map system and open world (to an extent).

Fiction has to be plausible. Reality is under no such constraint

The environment and exploration will be similar to that of "star wars-knights of the old republic" with the same shading and darkness of odst i bet my big toe on it ;)

"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. - William Shakespeare"

Update: I went through all of the campaign missions again, and then again, and I haven't found anything related to Destiny. I've looked in a lot of places, did a lot of glitches, and did a lot of Easter Eggs hoping it would "activate" something. Sadly, I was wrong.

I then thought maybe it doesn't have to be a hint through a picture, but maybe through a song in the game. Well, the first song I thought of was when you turn on the Easter Egg for Club Errera. Well, I finally got the song and reversed the lyrics but sadly, nothing.

Hopefully, you guys got lucky and found something related to Destiny even if it is small. Lastly, those pictures I said I would upload won't happen. I went back and looked at the pictures again and again, and came to the conclusion that they're not related to Destiny and they're in-fact just Reach things.

tl;dr

I agree, but I think Reach as a whole was a testbed, Bungie was testing something new and used Reach for that. I remember also a Bungie statement saying, they monitored EVERYTHING on Halo Reach data, to fix all the problems and improve them.

I think the whole change of pace with the matchmaking and all the new features in Reach was a testing ground for Bungie, to see what worked well and what did not.

I am very surprised though that we did not get any Destiny easter eggs in Reach. Maybe Micro$oft forbid it as a strategy to try and keep the fans focused on the Halo series rather than a future competitor to it.

Yeah, the campaign in particular felt like an oversized test, not to say I didn't like it (I actually really enjoyed it). It had so many new elements, like New Alex's "restricted exploration", a story focused on teamwork and the fight against the Covenant as a whole, and the aforementioned space combat in LNoS. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some kind of semi-open world in single-player and a scaled-down Planetside 2-style multiplayer with more customization (and minus continent-sized battles).

As far as Destiny EEs in Reach go, I do think that they exist, though Bungie wouldn't have put in anything as overtly obvious as the Destiny poster in ODST. We likely won't realize what they are until we see more of the game.

What house has a rocket pod, has legs, and has a long narrow barrel that probably shoots something powerful?

Sounds like you're describing the lower half of my body, actually.

Hang on. What were all the Easter Eggs in Halo Reach? Have we found them all, yet?

"So- So this means Im just going to be miserable for the rest of time?!"

"No. This means that you have to live life to the fullest. You have one life, live it well. Make sure you die without regrets. Get a new life, new mate, new family. You, out of all people, don't deserve a terrible fate of misery like that. Having nothing to look forward to is good. It makes sure you want to keep on going. Living is a right, not a privilege."

It would explain the space combat-like concept art they "leaked". Lots of potential.

Don't worry, you're still your mom's favorite Bnet member.

I don't know about Reach, but there's a pretty obvious one in ODST.
