Egmont to launch new Halo books in 2016 and 2017

Egmont Publishing will publish two new books for blockbuster video game franchise Halo over the next two years.

The first book, Halo Mythos: A Guide to the Story of Halo, will publish in October 2016.

In 2017, Egmont will publish Halo Mythos: A Guide to the Story of Halo, a comprehensive, authoritative guide to the story of the Halo universe.

Written in collaboration with Halo developers 343 Industries, the book incorporates the entirety of the Halo canon, spanning games, books, comics, live- action and animated entertainment, and more.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing the whole canon of the Halo universe to market in this beautiful book," said Sue Allan, publishing director at Egmont Publishing UK.

"With over 50 pieces of commissioned artwork, these books will be a real treat for all fans of the Halo franchise, whether they are new to the game or long-standing fans.”

343 Industries added: "We are extremely excited for our fans to have a collection that not only tells the story of Halo up to this point, but to be able to visualise many aspects that have not been available previously.”
