Halo Infinite is scheduled to release in the holiday season of 2021 but the game will not have the campaign co-op mode and Forge during launch, confirmed 343 Industries.
In the August development update video, while talking about campaign co-op, Joseph Staten, Halo Infinite’s Head of Creative said “Unfortunately, as we focused the team for shutdown and really focused on a quality experience for launch, we made a really tough decision to delay shipping campaign co-op for launch. And, we also made the tough call to delay shipping Forge past launch, as well.”
Staten added that the two modes did not match the quality standards yet. “When we looked at these two experiences — campaign co-op and Forge — we made the determination [that] they’re just not ready. So we’re going to keep campaign co-op and Forge in the oven for a little bit longer. When they’re ready, we’re going to release them as part of our seasonal roadmap next year,” he said.
When will these two modes be added in Halo Infinite?
Developer 343 Industries plan on releasing a new season every three months in Halo Infinite. Staten said that campaign co-op is expected in season 2, about three months after launch, followed by Forge in season 3, about six months after launch.
Halo Infinite release date
Staten confirmed that they are 100% committed to releasing Halo Infinite in the Holiday season this year and an announcement on the game’s release date can be expected very soon.
At launch, the game will have campaign mode and free-to-play multiplayer.
