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,wrote Joseph Staten, Halo Infinite’s Head of Creative.

Halo Infinite is the first Halo game to feature an open-world design of the missions in the campaign. That has proven to be quite a challenge for developers working on a co-op, as it requires a different approach both in terms of design and coding. This is especially the case for the split-screen co-op. The team aims to deliver the 2-player split-screen co-op experience on all Xbox consoles. According to developers, the stumbling blocks here are “wide-open sections of the Campaign present some big challenges for split-screen that have taken us more time to solve.”

What are all these unforeseen obstacles mean for the Halo Infinite co-op release date? Well, the good news is that we will not need to wait for too long. The co-op is still planned for release in Season 2. Though it won’t be released on May 3rd, we hope to see it delivered sometime in June 2022. As soon as we have an official confirmation of the date, we will update the article.
