In the first Halo Bulletin of 2013, posted on Halo Waypoint, 343 Industries has outlined the next couple of months of content for Halo 4, which includes the arrival of the Majestic Map Pack, bundling two small maps and one medium-sized map. There'll be new specialisations and multiplayer playlists too, such as Grifball, Team Doubles and the Forge Test, which will add Forge Mode maps to multiplayer matchmaking.
And as the Infinity Challenge winds down, 343 is also planning the return of Spartan Ops with the second half of the first season, tentatively scheduled to re-commence from January 21st. It'll bring "brand new stories, missions and locations" with each new episode of Spartan Ops, while looking towards February there'll be updates including FFA and an updated Team Snipers playlist, as well as the Majestic Map Pack at the end of the month.
Check out 343's "tentative" schedule right here:
