Halo's Story Got You Confused? This Chart Might Help

I'll be honest, Halo's story confuses the hell out of me. Not the general outline, I get that, but the specifics and history of the universe are presented as a mess for someone who just plays the games and doesn't get knee-deep in the external fiction. If goes without saying, but you should expect spoilers in the below image.

Why am I here? Who's that guy? When did that happen and what the hell did that thing just say? That sort of thing.

m So I'm appreciating this simple guide, laid out in chronological form, to the overall backstory of the universe, provided by GameFront. Though even after reading it through a couple of times, boy, they could have trimmed some corners there, made it a little neater.

Halo Story Timeline [GameFront]


    The timeline says the the Precursors created the Halo rings. That was the Forerunners. This timeline is void.

      Yeah it was the Master Builder who created the Halo Array, he was a Forerunner.

      By this time, the Precursors were wiped out, save for the prisoner in Halo: Cryptum

        Yeah this has more errors in it too.

        I'd probably ignore this until fixed
