When Halo Infinite released last November minus a campaign co-op mode, it came to the disappointment of many fans who have been eagerly awaiting news of an update. It looks like the will have to wait a little longer, according to developer 343 Studios most recent announcement regarding the Season 2 update set to release in March.
In the statement the studio assures that work on both two player split-screen and four player network iterations of the main campaign’ co-op mode is coming along. But it also addressed some of the issues involved in creating the mode for such a large and non-linear game as Halo Infinite, stating in part, “the reality is that it’s 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. We’re also committed to a great 2-player split-screen co-op experience on all Xbox consoles.”
The statement also added that, “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.”
While it may be a bit disappointing to learn that Season 2 will not ship out with co-op, there seems to be ample reason to hope that we will see the feature roll out at some point later in Season 2, and it is reasonable to think that it will arrive sometime before the game’s one year anniversary later this year.
