About This Game
The events of Halo 2 are set in the 26th century, where humans under the auspices of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) have developed superluminal-type space travel and colonized a large number of worlds.6 Agreed to the context of the game,
Harvest’s space colony has been decimated by a collective of alien races known as the Covenant during the year 2525. Declaring humanity an insult to their gods, the Forerunners, the Covenant begin systematically destroying the human colonies with the help of its advanced technology.
After the destruction of the human stronghold on the planet Reach, a single ship, Pillar of Autumn (“Autumn Bulwark”), carries out protocol actions to expel the Covenant from Earth, for which it begins a superluminal trip. Shortly after, the team discovers a ring-shaped world called Halo and belonging to the Forerunner race.
