The 20th anniversary of Halo is right around the corner and in the last two decades a lot has happened within the Halo universe. To celebrate, 343 industries is creating a brand new Halo Encyclopedia. Halo Franchise and Narrative Writer Jeff Easterling aka GrimBrotherOne shares more below.
The Halo Encyclopedia is written in-house by the 343 Franchise Team trident of Jeremy Patenaude, Kenneth Peters, and yours truly. Do me a favor, if you’ve got the previous encyclopedia on your shelf somewhere, give it a quick look. If you thumb to the very end, I believe you’ll find it topping out at around 367 pages (if you’re counting the 2011 updated/expanded edition), and as you can tell… it’s pretty beefy. Well, the NEW Halo Encyclopedia is slated to come in around 25 percent larger—nearly 500 pages. It’s chock full of lore, details, explanations, clarifications, and maybe even a few revelations—all painstakingly scribed by folks who absolutely adore this universe just like you do.
Today we’re back with a very special Canon Fodder! Get first details on a brand new Halo Encyclopedia coming your way next Spring and join us for a celebration of the Master Chief’s legacy in honor of Issue 117.— Halo (@Halo) July 12, 2021
