Tor Books, publisher of many… well, books, has announced a delay to Halo: Silentium. The book is the last and final novel in Greg Bear’s Forerunners cycle of the Halo series.
The book was originally planned for release in January 2013, but has since slipped its date to March 2013 alongside both audio and e-book editions.
Previous entries in the series include Halo: Cryptum and Halo: Primordium, both of which are presently available in digital and physical formats. The stories tell of the end of the Forerunners and is designed to fill in the canon explored by Master Chief and his cohorts in the upcoming Halo 4 videogame by 343 Industries.
Halo 4 is set for release on November 6 and is exclusive to the Xbox 360.
