According to Kiki Wolf kill, Executive Producer of this production, This is a beneficial decision for the two universes. This was what she commented:
We refer to this as Halo Silver Timeline as a way to differentiate it from the Central Canon. Both in the protection of the central Canon and in the protection of television history, and with that I mean I could give us the opportunity to evolve and so that both are what they need to be for their mediums without colliding with each other.
The Halo series will be an adaptation of the canon content that we can find in games, books and other official products. However, This production will not be essential to understand the story that is currently being developed.
Although at the moment there is no specific premiere date, it is expected that the Halo series reaches Paramount + at some point of 2022. On related topics, here you can see the first trailer of this show. Similarly, a bug is corrupting the games of Halo Infinite.
This is the right decision. The Canon de Halo has become quite complicated in recent years, and adding a series only had worsened things. This address allows more people to have the opportunity to enjoy this world without having to played something previously.
