Halo Infinite Campaign Co-Op & Forge Delayed to 2022
Sad news for Halo Infinite fans, the Co-Op Campaign and Forge are both being delayed until 2022. At least you still have the free-to-play multiplayer online, but it’s not the same thing. If you want to know more about the multiplayer, we reviewed it here. It’s not looking good for either mode, to be frank. We aren’t going to see Co-Op Campaign for Halo Infinite until May 2022, and Forge sometime after that. We already knew they wouldn’t be in the launch of the game at launch, but knowing it’s going to be until later in 2022, that’s disheartening.
A Hint Of This Was Already There
There was a hint already, it seems. When we talked about the Halo Infinite Season 1 extension, this could have been a tease of the future. It was then confirmed that the Season 1 extension meant the Co-Cop Campaign and Forge were both going to see a delay. Season 1’s going to last six months, instead of the usual three.
There is no confirmed release date of either of these, but 343’s Head of Creative, Joseph Staten spoke about it:
“We can’t commit to any hard dates right now, because as we’re seeing with this multiplayer beta, other things might move up in the priority stack for us. If it turns out that our progression system just isn’t working the way that we intended, if we need to move some of these bigger rocks sooner, then we as a team will make those decisions and will clearly communicate to our fans why we’re why we’re doing certain things.”
Well, one thing’s for sure, people are not happy about progression on the Battle Pass. We covered recently that there may be some changes made on that front. Personally, this writer has enjoyed playing Halo Infinite, but Co-Op is the part I was looking forward to the most. While we have no real dates to look forward to, we’re looking at Season 2 being around May, and Season 3 potentially going on around August. Don’t expect Halo Infinite’s Campaign Co-Op or Forge anytime soon as they’re confirmed delayed. What matters is that when they launch, they’re worth the wait, and live up to the hype.
