While Halo Infinite was received positively by many, the lack of new content in multiplayer has caused frustration for some fans. 343 Industries has spoken out on the matter, saying it “understands that the community is simply losing 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 about not being able to meet player and community expectations.” However, he also assures that useful content is on the way, it just takes time.
“There are indeed many challenges and limitations,” Jarrard said. “We’re certainly not happy about not being able to meet player and community expectations, it’s a difficult situation that will need time for the team to process. For now, the focus is on S2 and we’ll have more to share about that in the coming weeks.”
“In the meantime, a lot of production planning, estimating, planning, setting, etc. is happening, which doesn’t really lend itself to detailed regular updates. We understand that the community is just losing patience and honestly I think understandably tired of words. We just need some time for the team to sort out the details and then we can certainly share as much as we can.”
343 has already revealed a little of what fans can expect from Season 2 titled Lone Wolves, including new maps, armor and characters that will advance the multiplayer story, which will feature “a mix of cinematics and story-themed… Events, Battle Pass items, and more.”
Halo Infinite Season 2 begins May 3, 2022 and will also feature a free elimination mode called Last Spartan Standing, a new mode called Land Grab, and the return of King of the Hill.
