The following is a '''timeline''' of the [[TRON Universe]], which features both confirmed and unconfirmed dates within the canon of the franchise. Since the release of ''[[TRON: Legacy]]'' and its corresponding tie-ins as the official continuations of the events of ''[[TRON]]'', the original timeline of the series has altered. ''[[TRON 2.0]]'', the inital continuation of ''TRON'', is classified as separate from the new timeline by director [[Joseph Kosinski]]<ref name="latimes"><small>[http://herocomplex.latimes.com/uncategorized/tron-legacy-director-we-are-on-a-new-server-now/ ''Los Angeles Times:'' "‘Tron: Legacy’ director: ‘We are on a new server now’"]</small></ref>. As with all media dealing with [[Wikipedia:Transmedia_storytelling|transmedia]] or [[Wikipedia:Alternate_reality_game|ARG]] content, conflicts and discrepancies in either ''TRON'' canon may arise as a result of developer or production oversight.
   
Please note that several sources are contradicting each other with dates.

Revision as of 08:06, March 3, 2013

The following is a timeline of the TRON Universe, which features both confirmed and unconfirmed dates within the canon of the franchise. Since the release of TRON: Legacy and its corresponding tie-ins as the official continuations of the events of TRON, the original timeline of the series has altered. TRON 2.0, the inital continuation of TRON, is classified as separate from the new timeline by director Joseph Kosinski[1]. As with all media dealing with transmedia or ARG content, conflicts and discrepancies in either TRON canon may arise as a result of developer or production oversight.

Notes

  1. The e-mail concerning the similarities between Ma2a and Lora suggests that Lora's death was not immediate. There was some speculation among employees that Lora could've recorded a "vast [audio] library" for Ma2a from her deathbed.
  2. Page seven of issue #1 in TRON: The Ghost in the Machine confirms the series takes place six months after the events of TRON 2.0. Yet, on page eighteen, Alan's death in is dated April 19, 2006, suggesting that the events of 2.0 take place three years after the game's release in 2003. The latter was most likely an oversight on the part of writer's Landry Walker and Eric Jones.
