Halo Infinite’s campaign co-op mode will not launch alongside season two in May
343 Industries has revealed that Halo Infinite’s second season would not include an online campaign co-op when it launches on May 3rd. It is scheduled to premiere “later” in season two, with no release date set in stone.
According to Joseph Staten, Halo Infinite’s chief of creative, 343 will “hope to introduce Campaign network co-op later in Season 2,” but will not include it at launch. However, it is unknown whether split-screen and online campaign co-op will arrive concurrently, as Staten only lists network co-op as planned for season 2.
Staten also shares an update on Forge, which is still on schedule to debut in time for the third season. Staten claims that a limited number of gamers is presently testing the level editor, with public flights scheduled for “later this year.” Season two will introduce a new arena and Big Team Battle maps dubbed Catalyst and Breaker. Along with the eagerly anticipated return of King of the Hill, season two will feature two new game modes: Land Grab and Last Spartan Standing, which 343 characterizes as a “free-for-all elimination mode.”
Halo Infinite launched without Forge or campaign co-op in December. 343 Industries originally planned to deploy a campaign co-op during season two, however, the release was delayed further when devs opted to extend season one until May.
