Halo Infinite Co-op Campaign Expected To Launch In August

The release of Halo Infinite’s co-op campaign has apparently been pushed back to August 2022.

The co-op campaign was expected to launch next month after it was delayed from the initial release. However, last month developer 343 Industries acknowledged that it needed “more time” to work on the co-op campaign and Forge, and that co-op missions would not be available in May as expected.

Now, in an image from the company’s latest news update, 343i has revealed that the “target” for the co-op campaign is August, along with the campaign mission replay. Forge’s open beta is scheduled for September, but split-screen isn’t expected until sometime during Season 3 November.

“We know we need to deliver more content and more features faster,” admitted Joseph Staten in the latest Halo Waypoint update. “Staying true to priority zero means that sometimes we need to slow down to stay healthy and move faster later. But we’re also aggressively looking for ways to speed up.”

“As we continue to improve and accelerate, please understand that all of us at 343 are fully committed to making Halo Infinite the best Halo experience ever,” Staten added. “In fact, the main reason we’re extending Season 2 is to give ourselves time before shipping another season to fully address ‘quality of life’ improvements based on learnings from Season 1, as well as other data and feedback we’ve collected.

It comes just a couple of weeks after 343 Community Manager Brian Jarrard previously said that the studio understood that some fans “just had no patience” with the game’s various frustrations, and that his team “certainly didn’t I was happy that I couldn’t meet the player and expectations of the community.” However, some of these need to be addressed as part of the new season, he added.

ICYMI, 343 Industries recently released an early look at what Halo Infinite players can expect from Season 2, which arrives on May 3.
