Halo Infinite Gets a New Roadmap, Cancels Split-Screen Co-Op

343 Industries has finally provided a new roadmap for Halo Infinite, providing release dates for the long-awaited Forge Beta and campaign co-op.

Both features will arrive on November 8, with Forge Mode finally letting players craft their own maps and experiences. Forge has been a staple of the series ever since the release of Halo 3 in 2007. However, the mode is launching in Beta in November, and so far 343 hasn’t detailed the exact features that will be present at that time. To coincide with Forge, two new multiplayer maps will launch on the same day, Detachment and Argyle, designed to showcase just what Forge can do.

Unfortunately, it’s not all good news as 343 announced it’s officially canceling the split-screen co-op mode in Halo Infinite, to the dismay of fans. In the announcement post, 343 provides its reason for the cancellation, saying

“In order to improve and accelerate ongoing live service development, and to better address player feedback and quality of life updates, we have reallocated studio resources and are no longer working on local campaign split-screen co-op,”

Split-screen has long been a part of Halo, and there was already a bit of backlash when Halo 5: Guardians launched without it. Fans have been quick to voice their disappointment with the cancellation, with threads even popping up on Halo Waypoint about how 343 “broke their promise.”

There’s still more content coming after all this, as the new roadmap provides a glimpse of the future. The “Winter Update” will carry on through March 7, 2023, and plans to add a new game mode called Covert One Flag, two new events, and a variety of quality of life improvements.

Season 3 will take place from March 7- June 27 and is called “Echoes Within.” While there aren’t any exact dates yet, this season will bring new maps, new equipment, two new game modes, a new weapon, Forge Beta updates, and more.

Halo Infinite is currently available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
