While Halo Infinite has been positively received by many, the lack of new content in its multiplayer has led to frustration for some fans. 343 Industries has spoken up on this issue and has said that it does “understand the community is simply out of patience.”
343 community director Brian Jarrard took to Reddit to speak to Halo Infinite fans and let them know that the team is “certainly not happy to be unable to meet player and community expectations.” However, he also reassures that meaningful content is on the way, it just unfortunately takes time.
“There are indeed a lot of challenges and constraints,” Jarrard said. “We’re certainly not happy to be unable to meet player and community expectations, it’s a difficult situation that’s going to take the team time to work through. Right now the focus is on S2 and we’ll have more to share on that in the coming weeks.”
“Meanwhile a lot of production planning, costing, planning, hiring, etc.. is all happening which doesn’t really lend to detailed regular updates. We understand the community is simply out of patience and frankly, I think understandably tired of words. We just need some time for the team to get the details sorted and then we can certainly share as much as we can.”
343 has already revealed a bit of what fans can expect from Season 2, which is titled Lone Wolves, including new maps, armor, and characters that will push forward multiplayer’s story that will be told over “a mix of cinematics, story-themed Events, Battle Pass items, and more.”
Halo Infinite’s second season will begin on May 3, 2022, and will also see a free-for-all elimination mode called Last Spartan Standing, a new mode called Land Grab, and the return of King of the Hill.
