Halo Infinite Campaign Co-op Has Been Delayed

Halo Infinite Campaign Co-op Has Been Delayed

Matt Lorrigan

Developer 343 Industries has announced that campaign co-op will no longer be arriving in Halo Infinite alongside the launch of Season Two on 3rd May 2022.

Despite making “great progress on campaign network co-op”, 343 has said that in reality, it is going to take more time to “land a high-quality, full-featured 4-player network co-op experience in the massive, wide-open world of Halo Infinite”. 

Additionally, the developer wants to offer 2-player split-screen co-op across all platforms, but the non-linear, wide open sections of the campaign prove to be a bit challenging in split-screen, especially on the original base Xbox One console.

“All this means that we will not be able to ship Campaign network co-op on May 3rd, at the start of Season 2. But we are still aiming to deliver Campaign network co-op later in Season 2, and we will share a release date for that and for split-screen co-op as soon as we can,” says Halo Infinite head of creative Joseph Staten.

Campaign co-op was originally due to launch alongside Halo Infinite Season 2, along with Forge mode. As for Forge, 343 says it is making great progress with the mode, which will now ship alongside Season 3.

  • LOL
  • I have a hard time imagining how split screen in the open world would work without a terrible teleport or tether option. I want the feature I just don't know how it could be implemented well. Are there any other couch coop open worlds that pull it off well?
  • This game is such a disaster. Fuck 343i. They are truly incompetent.
  • Beyond laughable.


    Not to worried about this news though, cause I haven’t touched this game since I completed it on Legendary 2 months ago.
  • That’s fine. Plenty of other games to play in the meantime.
  • At least by the time it dies come out game will be super cheap lol. They could maybe narrow it down per region with invisible walls etc. I also have no idea how they could pull it off for the whole map etc…

    But looking forward to replaying it with friends whenever it dies finally come around.
  • Didnt think this game could get worse. Empty world, glitches galore, god awful multiplayer with an over priced store, missing core features.

    This is how you ruin a franchise. Good job 343.
  • And people wonder why ps players brag about their exclusives.. If it wasn for an amazing game pass. Xbox actually offers very little to anyone.

    Halo, Gears and Forza are dead af.
  • they have to release mission select first, otherwise it wouldnt be "campaign co-op" if you could just wander another players open world, that would just be "Co-Op".
  • it's pretty amusing at this point
  • @DeanyB - if you're still talking about only Gears, Halo and Forza as MS exclusives, you're either woefully out of date or not arguing in good faith, and all three franchises are either perfectly healthy, releasing record breaking releases or making incredible comebacks despite a slow trickle of updates.

    Last year was MS' most diverse set of exclusive releases to date.
