343 Industries hopes to finally catch up and deliver Halo Infinite co-op by this summer.
After several months of waiting, it seems that 343 Industries is finally ready to launch its co-op campaign on Halo Infinite. Highly anticipated by players, it has been desired since the release of the title on Xbox consoles and PC on December 8th. In a roadmap unveiled by the studio, it looks like co-op will eventually be available in augustif all goes well.
Be careful though, this only concerns network coop for the moment. Split-screen co-op should arrive much later, but we don’t know when yet. This feature will therefore only be available to players with an online subscription on Xbox or PC.
Will deadlines be met? Nothing is less sure. On the roadmap, we can clearly see that “end of August” is the release window targeted by the studio, and is therefore not yet fully confirmed. The coop could therefore arrive a little later if the development still encounters problems, but we do not know what limit the studio sets itself. He explains :
“We know we need to deliver more content and more features faster. To stay true to priority zero, sometimes we have to slow down to stay healthy and go faster after that. But we are also actively looking for ways to accelerate.”
Season 2 is coming soon
Co-op is an aspect of the game that has experienced many delays in the past and yet seemed to be one of the most important for players. This is also the case of the Forge mode which should arrive at the same time as season 3 if we are to believe the latest news from the studio. In the meantime, season 2 ofHalo Infinite is still scheduled for May 3, so in just a few days.
It will bring new maps, new game modes as well as new cosmetic elements. Season 3 is scheduled for November 8, and it should bring the same changes, in addition to local co-op, Forge mode, but also new narrative events.
