Halo Infinite: 343 Industries says ‘We understand the community is simply impatient’
When Halo Infinite was received positively by many, the lack of new content in its multiplayer has resulted in disappointment for some fans. 343 Industries spoke out about the issue, saying it “understands that the community is simply losing patience.”
343 Community Manager Brian Jarrard has arrived Reddit to speak to Halo Infinite fans and let them know that the team is “certainly unhappy that we weren’t able to meet the expectations of our players and the community.” However, he also assures that meaningful content is being worked on, which unfortunately will take time.
“There are really a lot of challenges and constraints,” says Jarrard. “We’re certainly not happy that we weren’t able to meet player and community expectations, it’s a difficult situation that the team will need time to work through. Right now the focus is on S2 and we’ll have More to share about that in the coming weeks.”
“Meanwhile, a lot of the production planning, costing, scheduling, hiring, etc. is going on that doesn’t really align with regular detailed updates. We understand that the community is simple. I just ran out of patience and to be honest, I think that’s understandable. We just need some time for the team to sort out the details and then make sure we can share as much as we can.”
343 revealed a bit about what fans can expect from Season 2, titled Lone Wolves, includes new maps, armor, and characters that will drive the multiplayer’s story to continue to be told through “a combination of cinematics, Story Themed Events, Battle Pass items and more.”
Halo Infinite’s second season will kick off 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 to action. Return of King of the Hill.
