Halo: Warfleet – An Illustrated Guide to the Spacecraft of Halo is a reference book on the Halo universe that is set to be released in 2017. The book will detail the technology, scale, design, construction, and variety of ships, space stations, and colony worlds in the Halo universe.[1]

Content[edit]

Described as a more "technical" counterpart to Halo Mythos, Halo: Warfleet will feature ten full-color cross-sections of ships by Hans Jenssen, known for his work on Star Wars: Incredible Cross-Sections, and John Mullaney, who previously worked on ship cross-sections based on the Firefly franchise. In addition, multiple all-new secondary art pieces by various artists will be included. Written by 343 Industries' internal writing team, with Kenneth Peters serving as writing lead, Warfleet will also include a variety of specific technical details and terminology formerly contained to the Halo Story Bible. The book is divided into five sections: Introduction/Technical Architecture, Human Ships, Covenant Ships, Forerunner Ships, as well as an expansive Glossary. The book will be published in an "oversized" format to accommodate the detail in the larger illustrations. Each spread will include annotations to explain the functions of given parts of a ship, along with statistics and history of the vehicle in question.[1]

Trivia[edit]

The Halcyon-class light cruiser on the book's cover is based on the original depiction of the class seen in Halo: Combat Evolved (including the Marathon logo on the port side) rather than the updated model seen in Halo: Reach and later media.[3]
