Halo Infinite marks the triumphant return of Master Chief and Cortana with a blockbuster single-player campaign and explosive multiplayer action – however, there’s still more to come from 343 Industries. This release is missing a few features long-time fans have come accustomed to seeing in a Halo game and 343 Industries has announced that both Forge and co-op campaign are on the way. If you want to fight for Zeta Halo with your friends, we have the latest on the Halo Infinite co-op campaign release date here.
Set two years after the events of Halo 5: Guardians, Halo Infinite continues Master Chief’s fight for humanity against impossible odds. This time around, he’s going toe to toe with the Banished – a coalition of alien races occupying Zeta Halo. Through Halo Infinite, 343 Industries have introduced open-world features to a Halo campaign for the first time in series history. This includes large open areas, fast-travel points, and a variety of side quests.
With so much freedom on offer, it feels like Halo Infinite’s campaign is built for co-op gameplay. Traditionally, Halo games have offered this feature from launch. With it being delayed for Halo Infinite, we have everything you need to know about the Halo Infinite co-op campaign release date and when you can take the fight to the Banished with your friends.
Halo Infinite co-op campaign release date
So, when do Halo Infinite’s co-op campaign features come out? Well, 343 Industries has shared an updated release timeline for the long-awaited addition via a post on Halo Waypoint.
Discussing work on the feature, 343 Industries has explained that despite “making great progress on Campaign network co-op” alongside other projects for the game, “it’s going to take more time to land a high-quality, full-featured 4-player network co-op experience.”
This means that Halo Infinite’s co-op campaign isn’t expected to launch until Season 3, at least. It was previously announced that it would launch alongside Season 2, in early May 2022.
At the moment, we don’t have a specific Halo Infinite co-op campaign release date – however, looking at the expected duration of Halo Infinite’s second season, it could arrive July 25 or August 1.
We will update this guide with more information when it is available.
Well, that’s all there is to it – the Halo Infinite co-op campaign release date is a little further away than expected. Thankfully, there’s still a lot of free-to-play multiplayer action to get stuck into in the meantime. If you’re planning to get stuck in, check out our guide to Halo Infinite’s best guns here.
