Creator of series?[edit]

"The concept for the Halo trilogy was thought up by Raymond Simmon (YO! THIS NEEDS A SOURCE), who sold his idea to Bungie."

As far as I can find through various searches and un-official sources, it is Joe Staten and Jason Jones who created the original idea and storyline for the Halo series.

No mention of this Raymond Simmon guy...

YO! FACT REVERSAL![edit]

ok... i just was browsing... and well the fact the Prophets thought using Forrunner tech was "Heresy" is wrong.... the Sanghili(aka Elites) are the ones that thought this... while the Prophets thought that Forrunner tech should be used.... trust me, I just finished Halo: Contact Harvest... can't give you exact pages or anything... but thought I'd just let you all know...

                                                                   24.31.247.108 00:52, 6 May 2008 (UTC)A Lone Deadly Wolf

PS- sry for not loging in, forgot password and can't find out how to get a new one / find where i wrote it down... (if I did...)

Actually, that statement isn't wrong. The Prophets do regard tampering with Forerunner technology as heresy...unless it's them doing the tampering, in which case it's suddenly perfectly alright. -- Administrator Specops306 - Qur'a 'Morhek Honour Light Your Way! 11:33, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Did bungie get ideas from stargate[edit]

A friend recently got me into Stargate and if you look at it just right you"ll see it kind of resembles halo --Bruce9 20:17, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

That would be where 343 Industry comes in; expanding the franchise and accidentally making the Halo Universe similar to Star Wars/Stargate.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 12:47, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Hang on, I'm normally in on what's new. So is 343 Industries the new "hated" company? You know, the thing that you just hate on? Because it seems as though everybody is insulting 343 and blaming 9/11, etc., on them. Vegerot (talk) 16:16, 12 May 2011 (EDT)!

Update[edit]

This page should be updated with the information we received in Halo: Evolutions, as some of the stories take place post-halo 3 (great schism/great war) .

One thing...[edit]

Bungi kept the halo series accurate, does that mean 343 industries will too?

Bungie didn't keep it "accurate", in the sense that there was a pre-planned set of ideas and events. But they did have a vision of what Halo should be, and they crafted one hell of a universe. Some of that vision is being continued by 343i - the story of the Forerunners, for example. 343i are also bringing their own ideas to the table, as they should. Are they as popular as Bungie's ideas? Will they turn out the same quality and awesomeness of the past? Recent material gives me hope. -- Specops306 Autocrat Qur'a 'Morhek 15:26, 28 January 2011 (EST)


Lack of sources[edit]

How do you put that lack of sources sign on the front of the page? Because this thing is supposed to cover the whole of the Halo Universe, so four sources is crazy. Vegerot (talk) 07:44, 12 May 2011 (EDT)!

Don't think this article needs citations since it is only a summary of the Halo universe. Best to keep it concise with links to respective articles.— subtank 09:19, 12 May 2011 (EDT)

Yeah, but like for the Battle of Reach section, you should reference Halo: The Fall of Reach, and Halo: Reach. Nothing specific, just generally where that info is from. Vegerot (talk) 16:08, 12 May 2011 (EDT)!

Post-War History after Halo 3[edit]

I think its bout time we add information from Halo: Glasslands, Halo 4, and when the time comes, Halo: The Thursday War. Its been missing for some time and I was thinking about adding a quick summary of Glasslands and part of Halo 4 so that we have some post-war info after Halo 3. --Killamint 15:38, 21 April 2012 (EDT)

Outer Colony's "widely varying loyalties to Earth"?[edit]

I was translating this "Halo Universe" article and found something that I can't understand. At section "History - Origin of UNSC"'s last paragraph, there is a sentence that says...

Their populations had widely varying loyalties to Earth, and taxes and trade restrictions set up by the UEG's colonial governing agencies caused dissent against the Earth government.

Well, it says Outer Colony had widely varying loyalties to Earth, right? It's saying that Outer Colony had a many different kind of loyalties to Earth, so I thought it was something good. But as I read more, it turns out Outer Colony hates Earth because of taxes and restrictions. So...what I'm trying to say is, are "widely varying loyalties to Earth" a good thing, or a bad thing? Can you explain why, too?

- GKO95 03:16, 12 December 2012 (EST)

The way I see it, it's more indicative of their instability rather than a flat-out bad or good thing. It means the colonists had all kinds of loyalties across the spectrum, though the context should make it clear they tended to lean on the negative side; in that sense it's more bad than good. Still, it would be a generalization to state that all Outer Colony citizens hated Earth, hence the "widely varying" part. --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 04:15, 12 December 2012 (EST)

Swords of Sanghelios[edit]

Would it be good for we to add the Swords of Sanghelios as a main faction now? They played a pivotal role in the last year of the Human-Covenant War, saved the Humans from defeat after the Great Schism and now we are getting much more info on them and their alliance with humanity. - Draft227 14:25, 22 February 2015 (EST)

Halo franchise[edit]

Just thought about this, but shouldn't we have a page about the Halo franchise itself? Similar to what Wookieepedia has here or what Wikipedia has for Halo. Here we describe the general plot, setting, characters, franchise history/reception/development/etc. We could probably just rework this page. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 12:35, 22 December 2015 (EST)

That is probably a good idea. This page needs a lot of work anyway (especially in how the history section works - we can't cover every single piece of media in detail anymore lest the page become absurdly long) and could do with some more out-of-universe information. It would be great if this page could work as a sort of primer we could point newcomers to who'd like to know the basics about the series with an inclusive but broad summary of everything and readily accessible links to more in-depth topics (both real-world media and in-universe subjects). --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 13:40, 22 December 2015 (EST)
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I can start working on this once I finish up a couple more Shadow of Intent articles. Centering the article about the Halo franchise, should we rename the article or anything? --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 13:46, 22 December 2015 (EST)
I agree with this idea. Draft227 (Talk) - 16:54, December 22, 2015 (EST)
