Halo Infinite Holiday 2021 release date
Thanks to the Halo Infinite Gamescom presentation, we finally have a concrete release date for Halo Infinite: December 8, 2021. This comes after Halo Infinite was delayed in August 2020 with 343 Industries citing “multiple factors” including pandemic complications and fans’ response to Halo Infinite footage. The Holiday 2021 Halo Infinite release window was set during a past E3 conference and has finally been updated.
Halo Infinite Forge and split screen co-op
Halo Infinite will not have campaign co-op or Forge at launch, 343 announced in August. The Halo Infinite team “talked about” delaying the game again instead of shipping the game without those two popular features, but decided against it and are pushing forward with the December 8 release.
In a recent developer update, creative lead Joseph Staten explained that both campaign co-op and Forge required more polishing time, and are due to release along with the seasonal roadmap sometime in 2022. 343 plans to launch campaign co-op three months after the December 8 release date and force six months after the game’s release.
“Unfortunately, as we focused the team for shutdown, and really focused on a quality experience for launch, we made the really tough decision to delay shipping campaign co-op for launch. And we also made the tough call to delay shipping Forge past launch as well,” Staten said. “Our number one priority is making sure that whatever we ship, whenever we ship it, it meets the right quality bar, and across all platforms: Xbox devices, PC, and all its different configurations. And when we looked at these two experiences, campaign co-op and Forge, we made the determination they’re just not ready.”
Halo Infinite Battle Pass
Halo Infinite will have permanent battle passes that never expire, according to lead player investment designer Christopher Blohm. That means if you buy a Halo Infinite Battle Pass, you’ll keep it forever, and if you buy a new one, you can choose which pass to put your progression towards. So, if you’ve got your eyes on a cool cosmetic and it’s later in a battle pass, you don’t have to grind in a certain amount of time to get it – and that’s a pretty big deal in the world of the gaming battle pass.
“If you can unlock something the Battle Pass, we’re not gonna let any other players circumvent that by purchasing it out of the storefront,” live design director Ryan Paradis says in the Halo Infinite multiplayer overview video. So you won’t spend time grinding for a cool bit of armor just for someone to buy it in the Halo story for a fiver.
