About The Halo Story

The Halo universe is vast, with media that span well over 100,000 years of history, from the time of the Forerunners through humanity's expansion throughout the stars, to their conflict with the Covenant and beyond. Although the story of John-117 and the end of the Human-Covenant War as told in the games is by far the most well-known part of the Halo lore, it is only a sliver of the universe. With over two dozen novels, half a dozen comics, several films and feature-length animations, and of course a dozen video games, the entire Halo story is seemingly endless and impossibly complex. This section strives to make sense of that world for fans both new and veteran, providing a curated look into the Halo universe like nowhere else can.
