With developer 343 Industries revealing last week that split-screen campaign co-op for Halo Infinite has been scrapped, industrious players have figured out a way to get it up and running anyway. Taking advantage of a menu glitch, it's possible to add three local players to your campaign session on Xbox Series X|S, and play 4-player couch co-op.
According to the tutorial posted by @HaloCreation (via @Zeny_IC as posted by Eurogamer), the trick requires following the simple steps below, and appears to work without any major, noticeable issues. However, there's always the possibility that employing the trick could corrupt saves or crash your console, and that 343 could eventually roll out a patch to put a stop to the workaround.
"After checking on Series X, the menu glitches to play Halo Infinite campaign splitscreen still work: no crash in cutscenes, no issue with AIs, etc.," Halo Creation observed of the menu glitch trick. "Never thought I would have to go through this to play with friends at home."
As for what's next for Halo Infinite, 343 Industries has confirmed that Season 3: Echoes Within has been pushed into March 2023, and that the Forge beta and online Campaign Co-Op will finally be surfacing as part of November's Winter Update. A new two-week ‘The Yappening’ event (trailered below) is also now live in Halo Infinite, with new cosmetics to earn in Multiplayer from now until 20th September.
Follow-up on this, here's a quick tutorial on how to play #HaloInfinite Splitscreen Coop using a menu glitch found by @Zeny_IC! (Kinda low effort, but it's 2AM, I'm tired, and it does contain everything you need to know to DIY! 😆) https://t.co/I1Cxx7YXqk pic.twitter.com/x0VAYW2tUh— Halo Création (@HaloCreation) September 3, 2022
