Over on the official Halo Waypoint website, 343 has revealed a new novel by Kelly Gay. It's a follow-up to Halo: Smoke & Shadow and Halo: Renegades, and is officially titled Halo: Point of Light.

Here's a bit about it - with the events reportedly taking place a month before Halo 5: Guardians. It's unclear if it'll have any ties to the upcoming release, Halo Infinite.

August 2558. Rion Forge was once defined by her relentless quest for hope amidst the refuse and wreckage of a post-Covenant War galaxy—years spent searching for family as much as fortune. But that was before Rion and the crew of her salvager ship Ace of Spades encountered a powerful yet tragic being who forever altered their lives. This remnant from eons past, when the Forerunners once thrived, brought with it a revelation of ancient machinations and a shocking, brutal history.

Unfortunately, the Ace crew also made dire enemies of the Office of Naval Intelligence in the process, with the constant threat of capture and incarceration a very real possibility. Now with tensions mounting and ONI forces closing in, Rion and her companions commit to this being’s very personal mission, unlocking untold secrets and even deadlier threats that have been hidden away for centuries from an unsuspecting universe. . .


Halo: Point of Light will launch on 2nd March 2021 and can be pre-ordered now for $17 or your regional equivalent.
