Halo Infinite will be missing two key elements of the Halo franchise when it’s released. In one development update released by developer 343 Industries, Joseph Staten, the game’s creative head, announced that Halo Infinite there will be no campaign co-op or spoof mode when it launches.
“Unfortunately, when we gathered the team to shut down and really focused on the quality experience at launch, we made the really difficult decision of delaying the shipping campaign collaboration to debut. And we also made a strong call to delay pre-launch shipping in the past,” said Staten. “When we looked at these two experiences – campaign collaboration and training – we decided, they were just not ready.”
These two features are fixtures of the Halo franchise, attracting players since its release Halo 2. Halo: Master Chief collect added its own custom game browser earlier this year. Custom games, for the uninitiated, created through Halo’s forging mode, are available in Halo 2, 3, Reach to, 4, and 5.
However, both co-op and fake campaign will be added Halo Infinite, just not immediately. Both features will take months to roll out into the game once it launches. Cooperative campaign mode and spoof mode will both be part of Halo InfiniteThe game’s seasonal map, with the campaign co-op feature appearing first in the game’s second season. According to Staten, the seasons in Halo Infinite, like the seasons in Master Chief Collection, will last three months. Forge is currently slated for release in Halo Infiniteof the third season.
Halo Infinite still no release date but there is a window of this holiday season. The game will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC.
