The lights are on
Most fans have noticed Cortana's prominent placement on the cover of the latest issue of the magazine. The new Halo team at 343 Industries is aiming to build her up as both a pivotal character in the plot and as a showcase for the new technology behind the scenes. We talked with Frank O' Connor about the evolution of Cortana throughout the series, why she chooses to be a naked blue lady, and how the impending end of her life affects both Master Chief emotionally and the overall story of Halo 4. Check out the video below and let us know what you think of the new direction for Cortana in the comments section below.

Good, good... I am pleased.
My interest for Halo 4 is rising steadily. I really hope 343 can live up to our expectations.
as i have said over and over again: In 343 I Trust!
But she's artificial: Just do a system reboot she'll be fine! :D
They better make her survive Halo 4 and 5 at least if not 6.
She looks more human than she ever did.
I can't wait to see how the story progresses. Bring on the emotion!
Cortana reminds me of another fictional character named Honor Harrington, both are strong female characters that somehow transcend their gender and become MORE powerful because of that. At one time the author of Harrington actually contemplated killing her off and have her children carry on the story but the tidal wave of fan protest held him off of that scenario (for now). I believe the same thing would happen if Cortana were to 'dissipate'. Halo would be a completely different game without her, not a comfortable idea.
I can't wait I love how she has real emotions and it just makes me love her more!
I'm getting pretty excited for this game although I really want to see some actual gameplay. Hopefully there will be a whole bunch at E3.
Just because a character is naked doesnt mean its feminist. Its just the way she looks, it doesnt mean its distracting just its more appealing to some and she can still be that strong women even if she is naked blue lady
Cortana's always been one of my favorite characters. I'm actually quite sad about her deterioration.
oh ***. your video player sucks GI.
I don't know if she will rise or fall, all I know is that she is SEXY.
i like how he's trying to rationalize their decision for making cortana naked. of course, it's because it gives her a conversational edge! and here i thought it was for all the men in the audience who like to look at pretty and naked ladies.
is it me or does cortana keep getting hotter every game?
I really, love the route 343 is moving in aspects to cortana. She has always played a reletivly major role in the halo Universe but at the same time it was as if it was all about Master cheif and she got very little of the spot light she deserved. Thinks are looking up i think as we will start to see just what goes on in the life of cortana, which may also improve the story greatly.
