Alex Wakeford, a community writer at 343 Industries, put out a tweet talking about Halo. He said, “We have a treat for you today, a proper hefty slice of deep Halo history! We’re going back to party like it’s MacWorld 1999, check out some stuff that didn’t make it into 2001, then head off to Alphamoon and a certain E3 2003 demo – and beyond!” The information comes directly from his Halo article that was published a few days back. 

For those uninitiated, 343 Industries have always been a part of the Halo franchise except for the initial years. As a result, the franchise has decided to take fans on a nostalgic journey. They will be releasing some unseen projects as a three-part exploration of some deep Halo history.

Here’s how the parts will be divided.

The developers have crowned the inaugural part with the title cutting room floor. With its release, they want fans to experience content from the 1999 Mac world. It will also include Halo Combat Evolved and Halo 2 that is under production. 

Post the first part’s release, the franchise has plans to let its fans meet the cutting room corps. They will feature the masterminds behind Halo’s projects and their ideas on different topics related to it. 

The final part of the trilogy will feature an encyclopedia under the title Cutting Room Lore. They will be styling it in a Cannon Fodder issue, revealing details about a few elements in the past games and how they were brought into the canon.
