"The Didact returns..."
Alex Wakeford announcing the novel.[2]

Halo: Epitaph is an upcoming Halo novel by long-time series writer, Kelly Gay.[1] The book was formally announced during the Canon Fodder live event at the Halo World Championship on October 21, 2022, in a panel focusing on the discussion of how Halo multiplayer maps fit into canon. Appropriately, the novel's name is a reference to the Halo 3 multiplayer map Epitaph.[2]

Halo: Epitaph will feature the continuation of the story of the Ur-Didact and is set after Halo: Escalation's The Next 72 Hours arc from 2013 during which he is composed following a conflict with John-117 and the rest of Blue Team.[2][3][4]
