In a recent development update video, 343 Industires’ head of creative Joseph Staten revealed that both Forge and the campaign co-op will not be available when Halo Infinite releases later this holiday season. Instead, both of these game modes will release in 2022.
“Unfortunately, as we focused the team for shutdown, and really focussed on a quality experience for launch, we made the really tough decision to delay shipping campaign co-op for launch, and we also made the tough call to delay shipping Forge past launch as well,”
“Everyone in the studio has the same conversation, which is: ‘what is our number one priority?’ Well our number one priority is making sure that whenever we ship it, it meets the right quality bar across all platforms… and when we look at these two experiences, campaign co-op and Forge, we made the determination that they’re just not ready.”
“We’re going to keep campaign co-op and Forge in the oven for a little bit longer and when they’re ready we’re going to release them as part of our seasonal roadmap next year.”
Halo Infinite is in development for Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC.
