Halo Infinite’s co-op marketing campaign and Forge mode, which received’t be within the recreation when it formally releases on December eighth, are going to launch even later than beforehand anticipated. In an interview with Eurogamer, Halo Infinite head of inventive Joseph Staten reiterated that marketing campaign co-op would launch with season 2, however since season 1 was prolonged by three months to Could 2022 this week, meaning the second season is a minimum of half a yr away.
Forge remains to be set to launch with season 3, in line with Staten, however we don’t know when that may arrive. And people timelines are nonetheless solely targets; issues might change if different priorities come up, Staten says.
Right here’s Staten personal phrases on the matter, from Eurogamer’s interview:
So our objective nonetheless stays what I stated earlier than, which is to ship marketing campaign co-op with Season 2 and Forge with Season 3. However these stay targets. These stay targets. And we will’t decide to any onerous dates proper now, as a result of as we’re seeing with this multiplayer beta, different issues would possibly transfer up within the precedence stack for us. If it seems that our development system simply isn’t working the best way that we supposed, if we have to transfer a few of these larger rocks that I talked about sooner then we as a staff will make these selections and can clearly talk to our followers why we’re why we’re doing sure issues.
Halo Infinite’s co-op marketing campaign is “playable now,” Staten says, however the improvement staff desires to take the additional time to verify it’s secure and works properly. The present single-player-only marketing campaign, which itself was delayed, already sounds pretty darn good, so I’m hoping that the additional time for co-op will probably be definitely worth the wait — even it implies that I can’t run by Zeta Halo with a pal on December eighth.
