This Canon Order was made to be a definitive order for you fans to read and enjoy Halo, with a sense of unbelievable odds. A sense that you can do the impossible and read, watch, play the entire franchise in one go. In order. A Halo story Bible contents page if you like.
This part shows the days of Bungie and their days of Halo and how they made the backbone of todays Halo. It also shows the beginning of 343i and how they continue to grow the franchise.
This part of the Halo Canon order deals with the earliest Canon, up to Halo 3.
