A few days back, it was reported that Halo Infinite’s online tests were to kick off starting September 23, but now, Brian Jarrard, Community Director, announced that the Halo Infinite multiplayer preview might not start on the previously announced date.
However, this shouldn’t be much of an issue seeing as how the online multiplayer test is only available to those who have signed up for the Halo Insider program. Players who had registered and signed up earlier last week will be eligible, and will get an email confirming the new dates and times.
What caused the Halo Infinite Multiplayer test delay?
According to the Community Director for Halo Infinite, the multiplayer preview is being delayed due to some issue found in the flight build. He also confirmed that the delay won’t affect players much, as it is expected to be quite short. At the same time, he also showcased his own gameplay from Halo Infinite Multiplayer, just to give players a feel of what they were in for.
What to expect from Halo Infinite Multiplayer

Returning facets of the game include bot matches, the battle pass, and Weapon Drills. The maps Recharge, Free Fire, and Bazaar will be playable.
Other key things to look out for are the Big Team Battle modes, which allow for 12 v 12 matches, and also includes the capture the flag mode. In this game mode, players will be able to check out the new map as well, which goes by the name Fragmentation.
