Since this is similar to Breath of the Wild or Skyrim. I hope a massive DLC will open up a unexplored portion and introduce the Flood to a actual new modern graphic engine.

343 is apparently seeing Infinite as a platform...similar to Destiny where the core game will be built on over time.

There's a lot of speculation based on what I've read, but it looks like the first expansion will introduce Co-op, and then further updates will build upon the world...probably events at first. I don't imagine that we'll see any significant new areas for at least a year following the release of co-op.

From a lore standpoint, The Flood should be left out of the game since that threat has been handled and concluded. Narrative references to the battle against the Flood and the origins of Halo would be nice for long-time fans, but if the Flood comes back I think it would be heavy-handed from a storyline perspective

It would be cool if there was like a "secret dungeon" of sorts where no one has stepped foot in it for thousands of years and it would be swarming with the flood. Going against lore but would be cool fan service.

This!

And with Halo Infinite being a game they plan to update overtime, they should eventually have all types of enemies to play in the DLCs. Really want to face the Flood in modern gen, could do some crazy cool stuff with them.

The Didact would've been a great successor the Flood until they found a way to write the Flood back into the narrative as the ultimate endgame villain.

IMO the best villains are all the ancient alien factions from the Forerunner-Flood war because of how OP they were written in the lore.

New things can be created and written that can bring variety, but are not the Flood. I don't want to see the Flood become Freeza where he's just always coming back one way or another and cheapening all the prior storylines
