In a new Canon Fodder blog post, Halo developer 343 Industries has officially revealed Halo: Point of Light, a new novel written by Kelly Gay. The book is a sequel to Gay's previous Halo novels Halo: Smoke and Shadow and Halo: Renegades, and it will continue the story of Rion Forge and her companions. Here's the official synopsis:
Notably, the story is set during August of 2558, which is one month prior to the events of Halo 5: Guardians. Because of this, it's unclear whether or not the novel will have any ties to Halo Infinite, which looks to take place a significant amount of time after Halo 5. Ultimately, only time will tell.
Halo: Point of Light officially releases on March 2, 2021, and it can be preordered now for $17. While you wait for the book, I highly recommend checking out Gay's other novels if you're interested in jumping into the corner of the Halo universe that she has fleshed out over the past few years. And of course, don't miss out on the Master Chief Collection on Xbox and PC if you're looking to get the definitive Halo game experience.
Rion Forge's next adventure
Halo: Point of Light is Kelly Gay's next work with the Halo franchise, and it's promising a new adventure with Rion Forge, ONI, and more.
