Halo Infinite Prequel Novel Is On The Way - And No One Is Impressed

Halo novels are a real beast. There are upwards of 30 of them now, all of which are constantly folding and flopping all over each other in terms of lore and details. Still, many of them contradict each other and confuse themselves with the expansive structure of the world.

Regardless, Halo novels still seem to be going strong with gamers, opting for the Spartan skirmishes for their holiday reads. And there's a brand-new book that fans, the most recent ones especially, can enjoy - but not everyone is happy about the reveal of a Halo Infinite prequel. 

What Is The Halo Infinite Prequel? 

The official Halo Twitter account has revealed that a new novel is on the way to pad out the narrative of everything that came before the most recent chapter of the series, serving as a prequel to Halo Infinite.

The Rubicon Protocol follows the events that took place six months before Master Chief was reawakened, and is written by Kelly Gay, the author of a number of other Halo novels. But some fans aren't happy about the announcement. Many expected that with teasers of the story of Halo Infinite expanding, that they'd be getting the announcement of a new Halo Infinite DLC pack - and now that it has been revealed to be a novel, some fans are seething.

"Why do you guys put all the good stuff in the books?" asks one reply. "This type of stuff would have made Infinite's campaign amazing. "Gonna do anything else with the Infinite campaign or what?" asks another user. It's clear that players are mad that they're not getting new DLC just yet - but at least they've got new content, which is a lot more than other franchises are getting at the moment.

 

When Is Halo: The Rubicon Protocol Coming Out?

Gay's novel is launching on August 9, so we don't actually have that long at all to prepare for the next chapter in the lore of Halo Infinite. The announcement blog post features the first chapter of the book, and comes with a blurb that teases what we can expect in the game.

Set in December 2559, the United Nations Space Command flagship Infinity is ambushed by the Banished. The surviving UNSC corps have to abandon ship and try to survive on the surface of the Halo ring. The book sounds fascinating, and will be a treat for Infinite fans... if they're willing to pick it up after being burned by the fact that it isn't DLC, that is.
