The Halo universe has grown tremendously over the past 20 years, spanning novels, movies, anime, and even comics. However, the main and most epic tale of this saga remains video games, very popular with fans. For you to prepare for imminent arrival From Halo: Infinite, we bring you a guide where you will find out in which order to play the Halo titles to understand the upcoming new game.
