Halo TV Series Won’t be Part of Halo’s Core Canon

Halo TV Series

The Halo series has been in the works in some form or another for a torturously long period of time, and was even in development hell for a huge chunk of that period. At The Game Awards earlier this month though, we finally got our first real look at it with a full-fledged trailer, and the series, due out in 2022, is finally on the horizon.

Some interesting new details have also come to light regarding the series. In a video shared on Twitter by Halopedia, Kiki Wolfkill – head of Halo transmedia and entertainment at 343 Industries – explained that the Halo TV series won’t be a part of the current series canon, and is instead going to create its own canon, which 343 Industries is referring to as the “Halo Silver Timeline.”

“We do have some context and perspective that is different from some of the stories that we’ve experienced and or read about in the games,” Wolfkill said. “We’re referring to this as the Halo Silver Timeline, as a way of differentiating it from core canon., and both protecting core canon and protecting the television story. And by that I mean being able to give ourselves the chance to evolve both, and for both to be what they need to be for their mediums without colliding with each other.”

Given how massive and complicated the Halo canon is with multiple games, books, and what have you, it’s not surprise that this decision has been made where the TV series is concerned. As I’m sure fans would agree, a series that isn’t beholden to that much backstory (and ongoing stories) is likelier to succeed at making its own mark.

Where games are concerned, Halo is in a pretty good place right now, for the first time in a decade. Halo Infinite is out now on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, and is going to continue to receive support from 343 Industries for the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, job ads have also suggested that the studio is working on additional unannounced game. A trademark for something called Halo: The Endless was also recently filed- read more on that through here.
