Halo Infinite campaign co-op delayed again, expected later in 2022

Hope you weren't planning on playing with a friend...

Halo Infinite campaign co-op has again been delayed, with the feature set to miss the start of the title’s second season.

“We’re making great progress on Campaign network co-op. And to be clear, this work has been occurring in parallel to Season 2 work, as has our work on Forge,” 343’s Joseph Staten wrote in a recent update.

Staten continued onto say that “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,” adding that he and his team are “committed to a great 2-player split-screen co-op experience on all Xbox consoles.”

Staten suggested that “non-linear, wide-open sections of the Campaign present some big challenges for split-screen that have taken us more time to solve,” on the likes of older Xbox consoles like the original Xbox One.

“All this means that we will not be able to ship Campaign network co-op on May 3rd, at the start of Season 2,” Staten said. “But we are still aiming to deliver Campaign network co-op later in Season 2, and we will share a release date for that and for split-screen co-op as soon as we can.”

Staten also confirmed that Forge remains tied to season three.
