Halo Infinite co-op won’t launch with Season 2
Infinite HaloThe co-op campaign and level editor’s Forge mode seem to be taking a bit longer than expected to arrive. The online and split-screen versions of co-op and Forge don’t have a set release date, developer 343 Industries announced Friday, and co-op won’t launch with Season 2 on May 3.
343 Industries said it still hopes to have the mode ready in Season 2, but isn’t ready to share a release date yet. Infinite HaloThe cooperative mode will allow up to four players in its online modes and two players locally via split screen.
343 also said it’s “making great strides on Forge” and that the mode is currently being tested in the hands of a few community creators. 343 said it plans to introduce public test flights for the mode later this year. As for the mode’s actual release date, 343’s goal is to ship the mode with Season 3 – which apparently means August at the earliest.
Infinite Halo season 2 will bring with it a new battle pass. The theme for Season 2 will be Lone Wolves, a theme that will guide some of the content 343 has created for the pass, but not all of it.
Infinite Halo Season 2 will also feature a new story centered around Spartan Sigrid Eklund and Spartan Hieu Dinh. The story will unfold through cutscenes, story-themed events, and battle pass items.
The new season will also include new game modes like free-for-all elimination mode, Last Spartan Standing, and new maps like Breaker for Big Team Battle and Catalyst for Arena.
