Halo Infinite won’t have a campaign mode co-op option until May 2022 at the earliest, and forge mode will be even more advanced.
Speaking to Eurogamer, 343’s creative director Joseph Staten confirmed that the game’s Halo Infinite Season 1 expansion means the two much-requested features have been delayed.
When 343 announced that Campaign Co-op and Forge would not be included in the launch game, it became clear that the former would fall in Season 2 and the latter in Season 3 months instead of the planned 3, that is, those modes were also pushed back postponed. Season 2 is scheduled to begin in May 2022, season 3 is expected to begin in August / September.

However, Staten couldn’t give a fixed release date for either: “We can’t commit to hard dates right now, because as we’re seeing with this multiplayer beta, other things could move up the priority list for us. It turns out that our progression system just doesn’t work the way we intended. If we have to move some of these bigger stones sooner, we will make those decisions as a team and clearly communicate to our fans why we are like that, why we are doing certain things. “
As Staten mentioned, the team had to be quick to respond to complaints about the game’s Battle Pass progression system after players found it to be a nuisance. Staten’s comments suggest that more work could be done on this system over time.
Despite this response, Halo Infinite’s early multiplayer launch was largely positively received and was very successful on both Steam and its own Xbox platforms. The campaign mode will be released on December 8th and we have 5 minutes of game time that we can show you in advance.
