These will be added to the game over time.
Halo Infinite will be released this holiday season. However, at launch, you won’t have the ability to play campaign mode with your friends or edit multiplayer levels using Forge mode. Developer 343 Industries announced Friday.
“When we looked at these experiences — campaign coop and Forge – we made the determination [that] that they’re just simply not ready,” Joseph Staten (head of creative on Halo Infinite) said in a video. “So campaign co-op will be kept in the oven for a bit longer. We’ll release them next year as part of our season roadmap when they’re complete.
CAMPAIGN CO-OP IS TARGETED FOR SEASON TWO, WHILE FORGE IS SET FOR SEASON THREE
Staten stated that 343 Industries plans to ship campaign co-op and Forge in the second season. Staten stated that 343 Industries aims to ship a new season approximately every three months. This means that campaign co-op will likely arrive around three months after launch, while Forge will arrive six months later.
Halo’s campaign cooperative and Forge mode are two hallmarks of the series, so fans may be disappointed to learn that they won’t be available at launch. However, 343 remains committed to launching the campaign this holiday season and season one multiplayer.
Staten said, “We’ll soon be discussing our actual release date.” Xbox is hosting an event in just a few days on August 24th, so perhaps Microsoft and 343 Industries will reveal the date there.
HALO INFINITE HAS HAD A BIT OF ROCKY HISTORY
The latest delays in campaign co-op, Forge and Forge are all part of Halo Infinite’s recent history. The original release date for the game was 2020. However, it was delayed to 2021 after a campaign that revealed the origins of the Craig meme. Staten, who was involved in the initial three Halo games, was brought on board soon after.
Despite its slow development, however, the recent multiplayer technical preview was very positive. This could suggest that the game will live to fans’ expectations when it finally releases this holiday season. You’ll need to wait for the game to be released to play it with your friends or modify it in Forge mode.
