Halo Canon Order (Halo 4 and Beyond)

OP CIA391

  1. 1

  4. 2
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 final days of Bungie Halo and the start of 343i Halo
This part of the Halo Canon order deals with after the Covie Human war in Halo 3, up to the furthest Halo can go.

Canon Orders and other useful stuff
If you are looking for a different format. Or are looking for a list of all the Halo Lore. Or even the first half of this thread. The following links below will help you.
Rule's
Normal Rules apply in this thread. If you haven't read them. Read them!
If you want to help great, post here or in the other thread, or PM me, I dont bite
If 343i says anything that will be counted as the best possible source.
This is not a place to say your dislike on a game. I will find a thread for you you if you start.
And thank you for taking your time reading these.

Impressive job, man. Glad someone's doing this.
Wow this is absolutely amazing!

But since I found a google drive version that's better readable and you are credited for it.
I was wondering how much is this in sync with the google drive list?

Oh thats LPPanther's work. He is someone who helps me work out some more complex stuff is required. He used my canon order a little and vice versa I used his.(Hence the link at the top of this thread)

Hes currently missing some of the more recent stuff in 2015. But will probably update hopefully in the future.

Currently this thread is the most up to date one around. ^^
Just saw this too for Halo 4 and beyond, love it man! Good work as usual! hah.

Believe is one of those black areas in my canon order. Its canon. But the info in it contradicts a lot.

Master Chief is still missing from after the battle of voi in Halo 3(aka everything after Halo 3's Floodgate level) according to this, and we already know different with Halo 4.

Plus its based round a musuem. A lot of the time only the "offical" story gets into them. True or not.

While the public may actually know the truth. Thats not the point as it doesnt show the publics point of view. Only the view whoever made that story wants the public to see.
Should we just call you Misjaak (The guy from Hunt the truth)? Because as I've read earlier: You're a beast. I have no idea how you took all this from the Slush, but you did one helluva job with this. Well bloody done.
Ok Minor update

2558 has been split into Months now. Simply due to the amount of lore that happens in it.
This also made my life so much easier now regarding the sorting of Halo 5's events.

Intel Sorted
Intro Update

I updated the intros of my Halo Canon order threads and my Halo Story and where to find it thread.

They are more user friendly and should allow you all to navigate round the threads. This was a request by a few of you folk.
Seeing as some of you like to go though the threads and have them open at the same time. :)

Pair this with my Signature and you have the easiest time ever navigating around.

Thank you for your feedback everyone and hope this update helps you do what ever you have planned.

I also sorted my little 'yoink' problem. Certain words had another word in them. And caused the filter to go off. While this is funny. It meant for three days you saw 'yoink' thoughout the canon order. And for that I apologise for that problem.
So, when does Halo: Shadow of Intent take place in the timeline?

Ok me getting the book yesterday I had to take in the info. I apologise for the wait. (UK folk were delayed sadly and I am only human)

Ok now to the small update

Ok using the book alone. Sadly there is no date given. But we can get an idea.
It happens in 2553 100%. Thats a given considering the Fall of High Charity is described as happened months ago.
And I would guess after March seeing as Humanity and Elites are at peace. Though it it means the "peace" in 2552 or after the official peace I dont know.
And the covenant Civil war got worse. Making it so the events of the book must take place during/after kilo-5.

Now to use the only other source we can get a date from.
The Catalog post that mentions post war operations of the Shadow of Intent ship.
Linky to post.(plus quote in spoiler tag so it doesnt fill the post)
Spoiler:
Show
This gives me the idea that it happens 100% after March 3rd 2553. Supporting the books info above.
Now to the more speculative stuff.
It could happen between March 6th 2553 - August 24th 2553 seeing as there is no "record of vessel" for most of it.
And it could happen between May 24th 2553 - April 15 2554 seeing as its dealing with internecine conflicts round the Urs System.(a little similar to the book but far enough that its could not be.

So pretty much the book can take place between March 6th, 2553 to April 15th 2554.
Which equals me placing it in the earliest spot as after the Voi Memorial.

I will change this if 343i say differently but at the moment I have to put it then. SImply due to the fact thats the only place I can.

I'd definitely put it in March 6th-August 24th.
Yes, we now have a place for it!
-AOK
Thanks to @bsangel on Twitter. We now have a more accurate look on the early events in Halo Grasslands.

Also 1 note I should make. The Dyson Sphere stuff with Blue team, Halsey and co. That happens in a Slipspace bubble. Where time worked wonky. So while it says November 2552. That is their local date. Not the actual date outside the bubble.
For accurate dates and months, just look at the stuff between the sections that have them till they get out.

Thank you for listening :)

Small update.
I just added in the Halo New Blood coda.

It takes place in 2558 100%, and should take place after February of that year simply due to thats when Tanaka finished her first deployment with Fireteam Domino during Infinity’s mission to Requiem.(As Tanaka is mentioned in the Coda as being part of the team, that hints she must of finished her missions on Requiem at least)

The only thing stopping me putting it right before Halo 5 is the fact that Tanaka could of still been in Fireteam Osiris, but simply was ordered to take part in the Absolute Record mission. Nothing stops that.

So there we have it. The reasoning to why I put the Coda so early. If its confirmed when Fireteam Osiris was formed I will change my placement. (hopefully we will get a more precise date soon. That is the earliest I can put it.
