Trivia[edit]

  • The sign on the Tterrab Industries building seen in the level Metropolis in Halo 2 originally read "Askloun".[5] The name was slightly altered in Halo 3: ODST.
  • In Halo 3: ODST, the company is only referred to as "Asklon". Their posters can be seen throughout the city, including all the accessible buildings in Mombasa Streets and even the NMPD Headquarters.[1] It is possible that Asklon is either what the letter "A" in the title means, or a subdivision of the company.
  • The logo looks similar to the icon for the Junior Detective achievement in Halo 3: ODST.
  • AMG may be a reference to either AM General, a real world company that produces the HMMWV or Humvee, or the Mercedes-Benz AMG (Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach) tuning and racing division.
  • The "Destiny Awaits" poster foreshadows Bungie's first post-Halo project, Destiny. The white circle represents the Traveler, a mysterious object that orbits Earth and grants the player characters their special powers.
